University Continuing Education Programme
Medical law – Master of Laws

The increasing juridification and specialisation of the health sector makes it necessary for legal practitioners dealing with questions of medical law as well as for doctors with leading positions in a hospital or other health institution, to acquire additional qualifications. This continuing education programme has deliberately been designed in a way that participants acquire not only legal knowledge, but also gain deep insights into the law in action of the health sector.
