The profile of the MSH is characterized by consistently interdisciplinary and interprofessional aspirations in teaching, research and scientific further education. Under the umbrella of interdisciplinary health research, we see research as the collaboration of health economists, psychologists, lawyers, educators, physicians, social scientists, health and natural scientists as well as other related disciplines and thus an integrative perspective on the field of health and medicine.
