Driven by a strong interest in biotechnology, medicine and IT, I applied for the master's programme in Medical informatics, which uniquely combines IT and medical science. I particularly like the programme's flexible course design. It includes two short internships and one extensive Scientific Research Project (SRP) that can be integrated with an internship or an exchange. I aspire to a career in healthcare and IT consulting.
