MII-Academy | Online Course for Clinician Scientists

Learn how to use routine medical data for your research project!

The Medical Informatics Initiative and the associated establishment of Data Integration Centers at university hospitals are creating entirely new opportunities to use health care data for research purposes across disciplines and locations.

In the online course for clinician scientists, researchers learn how to obtain and evaluate the health care data available in the Data Integration Centers in the context of their research questions. The course covers both organizational and methodological aspects.

The course is intended for physicians and other clinician scientists from the medical faculties at all sites who are planning or have already started their own data use project in collaboration with their local Data Integration Center.

The MII-Academy was previously initiated by the SMITH Consortium as the SMITH Academy and is now being extended to other sites of the Medical Informatics Initiative.

Enrollment in our e-learning platform will be available from April 2024.


The e-learning platform will open in the spring of 2024.

Courses are designed for clinician scientists with their own data use project.

Learn how to use routine medical data for your research project.

MII's Data Integration Centers offer local services for your research. Learn how to use them!

The teaching and learning units are divided into four topic-specific modules that can be used independently of each other.

We wish you a lot of fun and success with the MII-Academy!
