Faculty Council

The Faculty Council is an elected body of the Faculty of Medicine. It is responsible for all matters concerning research and teaching as well as for passing resolutions on the departmental regulations and other regulations for the faculty.

The Faculty Council is not responsible for matters of the department for which the Dean is responsible, or another competence is determined.
(Sec. 28 HG NRW   [“Hochschulgesetz” or “Gesetz über die Hochschulen des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen”: German Law on the Universities in the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia] dated 16 September 2014).

The members of the Faculty of Medicine and the students elect the Faculty Council under the chairmanship of the Dean. The tenure of the professors and the representatives of the academic staff lasts two years. The tenure of the students is one year.

The regular meetings of the Faculty Council take place on a monthly basis during the semester and are divided into a public and a non-public part. The right to participate in the meetings results from the Basic Regulations of the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf and the Higher Education Act of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Current notice:

Due to the current Corona pandemic situation, Faculty Council meetings will be conducted exclusively virtually as a Microsoft Teams meeting.

However, we are offering faculty members the opportunity to participate in the video conference. Access credentials are available through the .
