Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are rapidly changing the way medicine and healthcare are practiced, researched, studied, and taught. Whether you think of Electronic Health Records and Health Information Systems, Telemedicine and Virtual Visits, Mobile Health and Remote Monitoring, Digital Imaging and Virtual and Augmented Reality, Sensors and AAL, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Data Analytics, or Genomics and Personalised Medicine – the domain of Digital Health has become the main area of exciting innovations and developments in medicine and healthcare.
In 2019, the World Health Organisation officially adopted a Global Strategy on Digital Health 2020-2024 and recommended all member states to foster development of Digital Health, in order to strengthen their health systems and move towards Universal Health Coverage. In Germany, in the European Union, in USA, and in many other countries worldwide, digital transformation of healthcare is currently the hottest topic and the highest priority for all involved stakeholders: governments, ministries and public authorities, insurers, healthcare providers, physicians and nurses, and of course, patients and consumers. Consequently, Digital Health specialists will be among the most demanded professionals in the coming years and decades.
This uniquely innovative, uniquely interdisciplinary, and uniquely international study course taught exclusively in English with no tuition fees*, offers excellent and motivated graduates of biomedical and computer science disciplines from around the world, an exclusive opportunity to immerse in a highly professional and dynamic, diverse and multicultural, hard-working and proactive Digital Health community right in the heart of Europe, with unparalleled possibilities for studying, researching and networking, and excellent career prospects, – an opportunity to specialize in a field that is revolutionising healthcare, medicine, and the entire society.
Don’t miss your unique chance to become a specialist of the future, and to join a cohort of professionals who will be shaping the world of healthcare in the decades to come!

This study course is designed for delivering solid theoretical knowledge, practical skills and methodological competences in Digital Health — with an emphasis on management and research components — preparing graduates for taking over the leadership positions and driving the digital transformation of healthcare worldwide. Graduates can expect to launch their careers in:
The aim of the programme goes beyond the basic objective of “employability” toward professional proficiency and career success. The focus is on hands-on, solution-oriented and implementation-oriented competencies in an international context, which are gained through concrete, practice-based projects and real-life case studies. Competencies in the areas of Health Care, eHealth, Research and Methodology as well as soft skills will be developed through a module-based course structure. Within the modules, synthesis and synchronisation will be achieved through translating knowledge into concrete case studies (deduction and induction). As a rule, case studies, projects and “hot topics” make up approximately 50% of each module.
Since 2020, DIT-ECRI is hosting a series of events dedicated to Digital Health, under the common brand DigiHealthDay, consisting of the International Scientific Symposium DigiHealthDay on the second Friday in November (which is the Digital Health Day on our Campus!), and a series of pre-meeting DigiHealth Workshops on various Digital Health topics. Become a part of our own vibrant, multinational and interdisciplinary academic activity in Digital Health!
