The aim of the master's program in Medical Photonics is to prepare students for scientific and research-oriented careers within the field of Medical Optics and Photonics and to provide the foundation for further academic programs. As a student of this master's program, you will gain deeper theoretical, methodical, and systematic insights into branches of biology, medicine, mathematics, chemistry, and physics. At the same time, you will gather the necessary experimental skills for doing research in the field of Medical Photonics. During your studies, you will have the possibility to receive specialized training in various subfields of Medical Photonics, such as microscopy, spectroscopy, and diagnostics as well as clinical applications of these techniques.

Admission Requirements

For this master's program, you need a subject-specific undergraduate degree (minimum 6 semesters/180 ECTS-Credits) or an equivalent degree.

The bachelor's grade final overall point grade must be GOOD or higher (2,5 German and US systems).

More Information

The MSc Medical Photonics program will provide you with the necessary knowledge and practical skills to work in the interdisciplinary field of Medical Photonics. The program will facilitate you to use and develop optical methods in biomedical research and in clinical practice. Graduates of the MSc Medical Photonics will have excellent prospects in finding a job at technology-related companies in optics, medical technology, or life sciences. These branches will experience a severe lack of skilled specialists in the near future. Alternatively, graduates can pursue a scientific career and participate in one of the Ph.D. programs of the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena. Medical doctors can use the master programme to gain insight into optical and photonic techniques and to qualify for MD / Ph.D. programs of the Medical Faculty.
