The DIFUTURE consortium (Data Integration for Future Medicine) and the MIRACUM consortium (Medical Informatics in Research and Care in University Medicine) are inviting doctoral students and young professionals to the fourth MIRACUM Summer School. We would like to work more closely with MIRACUM in the future. That is why we are participating in the MIRACUM Summer School for the first time this year, which is now being held under the new name “MIRACUM DIFUTURE Summer School”. This annual summer school is part of our concept to strengthen medical informatics.

This year’s five-day summer school will be held in the Palatinate region and will focus on the topic of “Tools in MII”.

In addition to the specialist training, two social events are also planned, which will provide sufficient time for intensive socialising and team building. These activities are intended to promote and strengthen future collaboration in the long term.
