The International Master of Environmental Sciences (IMES) was developed in 2004 by representatives of six Cologne Faculties, including the Medical Faculty with Prof. Dr. Thomas Erren as coordinator. It has been accredited since 2007. Foreign students from all over the world graduate in IMES after passing four terms in two years.

Currently, we plan for in-person teaching. However, we are prepared to switch to online lectures using Zoom should control measures in operation at the University and the University Hospital deem it necessary.

Please contact Dr. Philip Lewis () with any queries you may have.

We wish you much success for the coming semester!
