Since 2013, the Kassel School of Medicine gGmbH offers physicians a bilingual, five-year fee-based medicine study programme– the BM(EU) with a recognised degree. Together with the prestigious British University of Southampton, an innovative study program has been developed, bringing together the experience gained from two different education and healthcare systems combined. We attach great importance to providing our students with the necessary specialist and practical skills with a focus on patients as human beings. We believe in the importance of early patient contact, the use of modern teaching methods and the acquisition of initial experience in medical research during the course of studies.
The quality of the fee-based BM (EU) Medicine Study Programme is monitored by the UK's highest regulatory authority for medical study programs, the General Medical Council (GMC). Our students are enrolled in full-time study at the University of Southampton and are involved in the continuous quality improvement process. The latest GMC audit report is available online at the General Medical Council website.
Brexit has no effect on our teaching quality! As before, we are able to prove in audits that we provide excellent teaching and that we offer high-quality study in two countries - Great Britain and Germany.
Even though Great Britain is no longer part of the EU, the rewarded degree is equivalency approved and recognised by German authorities (HLfGP 2023)
The Kassel School of Medicine (KSM) is a non-profit GmbH (gGmbH) and thus an independent and at the same time wholly owned subsidiary of Gesundheit Nordhessen Holding AG (GNH). The KSM is managed by Arne Werthmann, CEO of the GNH subsidiary MVZ, and Dr Daniela Stiegel, Head of the Department for Law, Compliance and Organization at GNH.
The KSM team is small but full of competence, passion and ambition and led by the lead administration in an agile way. The Education Management is devided in year 3 including research projects and year 4 and 5. Furthermore the study counsellor is an important part of our team to make sure our students are well taken care of.
The Foundation Year Team is responsible for the organisation and coordination. The Foundation Year Training Program Director is Dr Med. Klaus Weber, who is also the head of the Central Emergency Department and dept. Clinical Director of Klinikum Kassel.
