Institute for General Medicine

The Institute of General Practice (IAM) sees itself as a bridge between university medicine and primary medical care. We promote an evidence-based discourse on concepts of future-oriented healthcare. Our activities are practice-oriented, participatory and interprofessional. We network researchers, citizens, healthcare teams, political decision-makers and interest groups in the healthcare sector.

Institute for Ethics and History of Health in Society

The interdisciplinary team works on ethical and historical perspectives of medicine in its clinical, scientific, social and political contexts. In research and teaching, we deal with current issues of health, prevention and disease and contribute to the ethically and historically informed discussion of norms and values in medicine, science, politics and the public.


Department of Medical Education Augsburg DEMEDA

The competence-oriented Augsburg model course of study focuses on the integration of theory and practice in medical training. The model course of study is continuously developed further through the acquisition of empirical evidence. At the same time, its own research results contribute to improving the overall quality of medical training and optimizing it on a scientific basis.
