The Hannover Medical School (MHH) is a leading institution of higher education and synonymous with excellence in teaching, research and health care (as stated in the MHH Mission Statement). Our approach is integrative and cooperative. Academic education and scientific learning are the primary focus of our university whose aim is interdisciplinary and practice-oriented higher education.

This is seen in their constructive participation and collaboration in university courses, active self-learning and work on academic committees. A distinct and fair discussion and feedback culture enables an intensive exchange of information and ideas.
The university’s administration fosters and promotes teaching and learning with its supportive organization and infrastructure. A well-founded structuring of digital teaching and learning environments is our aim.
The MHH imparts specialized knowledge in all disciplines and across subject areas. Instructors at the MHH engage in work and research of the highest caliber and include current scientific discoveries in their teaching.
