In autumn 2005; the University of Tromsø started a 2-year master of science in telemedicine and e-health. Students can choose between technology and health; and the program starts each fall. The program is developed and run in close collaboration between the University of Tromsø and the Norwegian Centre for Integrated Care and Telemedicine (NST). The idea behind the development and implementation of telemedicine is to move information instead of patients and reduce the growing burden on health care. Master’s degree in Telemedicine and e-health provides a thorough introduction to medical technology; how health care is organized and how best to introduce telemedicine to provide better services to patients. The teaching language is English. Teaching is amixture of lectures and group work. All students write a final thesis.
