The University of Groningen, the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) and the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg (Germany) will establish a joint Medical degree programme. The ‘European Medical School’ is the first cross-border Medical degree programme in Europe. It is also the only Medical programme in Germany based on the Bachelor’s/Master’s structure.
The European Medical School offers forty medical students from Oldenburg and forty from Groningen the opportunity to follow part of their degree programme in Groningen or Oldenburg respectively. Once they successfully complete the programme they will receive a Dutch medical degree that is recognized throughout Europe. The German students can also opt to sit the German state examination.
The Carl von Ossietzky University will develop the Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes on the basis of the curriculum of Groningen’s Medical programme (G2010). The cooperation offers the Groningen students the possibility to follow their clerkships in Germany. The launch of the Medical School is planned for 2012.
The European Medical School is the product of more than thirty years of cooperation between Groningen and Oldenburg and is in keeping with the University of Groningen’s internationalization strategy. The cooperation with Oldenburg has special significance thanks to Groningen’s geographical location. The European Medical School in Oldenburg will be the only Medical faculty in the north-west of Germany.
