The goal of the degree program is to teach the knowledge, abilities, and skills necessary to conduct independent scientific work in biomedical research, development, diagnostics, and production. Graduates of the program should be capable of:
- formulating scientific questions in theoretical or clinical research independently and addressing them with modern methodology,
- linking content and questions of medicine with ways of thinking and working from the natural sciences,
- thinking beyond the bounds of individual disciplines and applying interdisciplinary knowledge to clinical questions,
- applying statistical procedures and models for describing life processes to questions of clinical and experimental medicine,
- illustrating scientific findings and concepts in written and oral form using medical terms and taking into account their ethical and legal background,
- with the goal of explaining the causes of illnesses on the molecular level through the methods of molecular biology and cell biology and using this knowledge to derive new possibilities for diagnostics, therapy, and prevention.

Please note:
From the summer semester 2020 on there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
