The Institute of Medical Sociology, Health Services Research, and Rehabilitation Science (IMVR) is a joint scientific institution of the Faculty of Human Sciences and the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Cologne.
We combine several scientific disciplines with a broad theoretical and empirical expertise.
Through our scientific work, we aim to improve health care by providing context and evidence that guides health care practice.
We focus on the conception, organization, implementation, and evaluation of studies in health care facilities as well as the interviewing of patients, employees, and management personnel.
