Welcome to the Centre for Medicine and Society (ZMG)

The Centre for Medicine and Society was founded in November 2014 at the University of Freiburg. Located in the heart of Freiburg, the Centre responds to the complex challenges of global health concepts in an interdisciplinary collaboration between natural, human, and social sciences in research and teaching. Together with the Faculty of Humanity it jointly organizes the Master of Science in Global Urban Health.

About the Centre for Medicine and Society in Freiburg

 

The Centre for Medicine and Society aims to be a core element of existing Global Health initiatives at Freiburg University and beyond, bringing together the complementary expertise of the university and its disciplines with regard to health-related issues and enhancing a continuous interdisciplinary discussion and cooperation with internal and external stakeholders in order to develop innovative approaches in research, health practice and capacity building activities.

Since 2020, the ZMG has had a new directorate that focuses on Planetary Health.

The ZMG is embedded in an international research network: In the Global Health Hub Germany we work together to improve health for people everywhere. In the Pan University Network for Global Health, the Centre cooperates with the Faculty of Health Sciences of the University of Cape Town, South Africa, the Department of Behavioral Sciences at Pennsylvania State University and other partners from the Netherlands, India, China and Brazil. The aim is to analyse the health needs of the urban population in particular - especially in emerging and developing countries - and to work together to find solutions to problem areas.

In addition to the research component, the Centre offers courses in public health. Since 2016/17, the master program “Global Urban Health” (MSc GUH) deals with the health needs in urban areas from a holistic perspective. The teaching component combines knowledge in medical, social and natural sciences and also includes an economic perspective.
