Gender Equality

The Faculty of Medicine has established several instruments to effectively support female scientists as well as male scientists with young children.

For example :

  • TANDEMmed  - helpful mentoring programs for our consortium to implement more female scientists. Gradually structured program with multiple options for female medical students after the basic medical exam.
  • TANDEMplusMED – supporting medical and academic staff members with doctorates, who are on the path to professorship
  • Habilitation scholarships for female physicians and female non-clinical scientists

To support equal opportunities and gender equality, there are funds for the following measures:

  • Childcare in emergency cases will be offered as a back-up facility to organize work
  • Workshops for women on scientific and soft skills, female scientist networking and/or leadership, offered on a regular basis.
  • Student assistant support for young families
