Basic information on the development and status of DTMD University, location and branch of Trakia University Stara Zagora in Luxembourg

The Trakia University in Stara Zagora, which is state-recognized in Bulgaria, has fully incorporated DTMD University as a subdivision as of 3 April 2024. DTMD University is therefore a Luxembourg location (branch) of the Bulgarian Trakia University, whose national legislation it follows. The programs are accredited both in Bulgaria and by the German AHPGS Freiburg i.Br., i.e. not in the Grand Duchy.

Originally, Trakia University issues all diplomas and titles of DTMD University, which are therefore not Luxembourgish diplomas or titles. DTMD University works in Luxembourg for Trakia University in the field of continuing education (advanced training) for medical professions and related professions, which was initiated by the Bruges-Copenhagen Process.

As an international network of highly qualified lecturers from European universities and university hospitals, scientific institutes, academic teaching practices and international specialist societies, the DIN/ISO-certified DTMD University has been recognized by the Luxembourg government as an "Organisme de formation professionelle" based in Wiltz Castle since 2017. The teaching and research activities of DTMD University are accredited throughout Europe.

The goal of DTMD University is to offer in-service postgraduate continuing education programs in medicine and dentistry, as well as special education and training certificates for all medical companion professions. Students are directly involved in the research activities of DTMD University through their empirical and clinical term papers, master's theses, and doctoral dissertations.

DTMD University is committed to meeting the strict transparency and permeability requirements of the Bruges/Copenhagen Process of the EU Commission at levels 6 (Bachelor), 7 (Master) and 8 (Doctorate) of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).

DTMD University is managed by a board of directors consisting of Prof. Reuter (President) and Prof. Rößler (Dean). Reuter is responsible for strategy and administration. Rößler is responsible for teaching and research.

The "DTMD University for Digital Technologies in Medicine and Dentistry", or "DTMD University" for short, became part of Trakia University in Stara Zagora (Bulgaria) under its aforementioned full name on April 3, 2024. Trakia University is a fully state-run university with a medical focus. The decision to incorporate DTMD University into Trakia University means that Trakia University operates its DTMD University as a Luxembourg location (branch office) and issues all degrees and titles originally. The Bulgarian town of Stara Zagora will also be home to institutes affiliated with DTMD University.

Independently of this, DTMD University will also become a branch of other internationally recognized universities in the future. DTMD University ensures that these universities are fully classified in "anabin" under category H+ in accordance with the German Conference of Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs (KMK lists).
