Familie, Gender & Diversity

Welcome to the Prodeanate for Academic Development and Gender

The Vice Dean's Office for Academic Development and Gender at the Medical Faculty of the University of Cologne aims to promote academic development at all levels of development and to balance gender imbalances in medical research and academic education.


Our target

The current focus is on promoting scientific careers on the way to management positions and on developing and testing a best practice procedure for appointments, taking gender-sensitive factors into account. A further focal point is the improvement of framework conditions for the compatibility of family and study or career. In this way, the Vice Dean's Office, in the spirit of the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, is committed to the goal of achieving equal opportunities for women and men in working life.
