The main goal of the degree program, which is designed to be completed alongside a full-time job, is to provide health care professionals engaged in the area of palliative care practically oriented and academically challenging further training in this area and qualify them for positions in the management and praxis of stationary and ambulant palliative care, in training and continuing education, and in science and research. The program provides students with the necessary competencies to care for critically ill and dying patients as well as their families and friends, including central skills in medicine, psychology, social science, ethics, and organizational management, as well as comprehensive methods for analyzing, developing, and designing modern palliative care structures.

Please note:
From the summer semester 2020 on there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
