Hands-on Study Program: CompuGroup Medical AG and the Niederrhein College Enter a Cooperative Partnership

Koblenz – December 1st, 2014: CompuGroup Medical AG (CGM) and the Niederrhein University in Krefeld will work together in the area of Research & Development as well as in the creation of a hands-on study program. University students will then have the opportunity to qualify as potential new employees.

CompuGroup Medical AG (CGM), a leading provider for eHealth solutions worldwide, has recently entered into a cooperative partnership with the Niederrhein University in Krefeld. Through this new partnership, there are new opportunities for mutual research and development projects in eHealth and IT-supported medical treatment. Furthermore, university students can gain their first hand-on experience at CGM in the form of a dual study program. They will actively participate in the company’s software projects, learn about the internal company processes and assume responsibility early on. Thus, students will be optimally prepared for entering the workforce. Additionally, both partners can benefit from an intensive exchange in the area of standardizing medical data.

“The dynamics of the healthcare sector and demographic developments have resulted in the importance of medical treatment significantly increasing. Our vision is to support medical treatment in terms of the patient through the use of intelligent IT solutions. I am pleased that we have the opportunity through our partnership with the Niederrhein University to teach young people more about this vision and get them excited about the great perspectives in eHealth during their studies”, said Frank Gotthardt, Chief Executive Officer of CompuGroup Medical AG.

Being involved in academia and having the ability to promote talented young people is of great importance to CGM. Since the beginning of the year, the software company has been involved with the University of Koblenz as a practical partner for the school’s dual study program.
