Welcome to Hanover Medical School (MHH) with IsiEmhh
IsiEmhh is a guidance program, especially for first semester students to ease your start in this new exciting chapter of your life.
IsiEmhh - what's that?
IsiEmhh means integration, linguistic and intercultural start into your studies at MHH.
Since 2008, the program is known for promoting integration of students with international background at Hanover Medical School. At first, the program only served medical students and was called IsiEmed but since winter semester 2015/2016 all other majors are included aswell. Hence the name change to IsiEmhh.
One main focus of this project are intercultural skills that are of growing importance in our multicultural society and demand a lot from a new generation of young doctors.
IsiEmhh supports international students who start studying at our university and whose native tongue is not German, especially during their first year of studies. Our aim is to facilitate the start into your studies at MHH and make you feel welcome in your new surroundings.
Moreover, IsiEmhh wants to raise awareness for the important topic of integration and cultural diversity in teaching staff members, staff in the hospital and in research and tries to involve them in the program.
We are looking forward to get to know you and to accompany you during your first term at MHH.
