Fresenius Helios will take responsibility for practical instruction as part of the first worldwide digitalized medical studies program. The new course of study meets European certification standards and will start in the winter semester 2018/2019 at the EDU College of Medicine, Malta. Theoretical components of a bachelor’s and follow-on master’s program will be available solely via an online platform. Students will be networked into learning communities taught by faculty. About one-third of the course is practical instruction that will take place in hospitals operated by Fresenius Helios in Germany. The program initially will be limited to 75 students. The long-term goal is up to 3,000 students.
