After graduation from Medical School at Ruprecht-Karls-University, Heidelberg, in 1999 and three years of General Internal Medicine at Regensburg University Hospital, I continued with a clinical internship at MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham, Massachusetts, followed by the residency program in Public Health and General Preventive Medicine at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Maryland. I obtained an MPH, an unrestricted medical licence in the state of Pennsylvania and certification in General Preventive Medicine and Public Health. In 2005, I moved back to Germany as lecturer at the Institute for Medical Management and Health Care Sciences at University of Bayreuth. I completed my clinical residency in a GP office leading to certification in Internal Medicine and General Practice in 2007. From 2008-2015, I was involved in building up the Institute of General Practice and Family Medicine at Jena University Hospital. In 2015, I was appointed professor and head of the division of primary care at University of Oldenburg where the European Medical School Oldenburg Groningen is being established. I continue to see patients in a private GP office .
My main research area is evidence-based medicine and health services research. I am involved in clinical guideline projects on Lyme borreliosis and diabetes.
