The Hannover Medical School (MHH) was founded in 1965 to increase the number of students of medicine in Germany. Over 3200 students are enrolled at the MHH. Beyond teaching, the MHH has become one of the world’s leading university medical centers with three research focuses; infection, immunity and inflammation research, transplantation and stem cell research, as well as biomedical engineering. A characteristic feature of these research focuses is, in addition to the recognized expertise of the MHH in basic research, the high degree of interdisciplinary cooperation with the clinical departments.
Participants can broaden their knowledge and gain in-depth experience in general, vascular and body radiology procedures, including interventional oncologic treatment. All diagnostic angiograms and vascular interventions are performed with the visionary Artis Q ceiling, which is installed as a hybrid IR that complies with a hygienic room classification class II surgery room standard for sterility.
