Formed on 01 November 1939 when the Marinesanitätsschule was moved to Sanderbusch from Wilhelmshaven. Unlike the Marinesanitätsschule Wilhelmshaven which was within the Marinelazarett Wilhelmshaven, this Schule was independant and subordinate directly to the Sanitätsamt Nordsee. It was formed for the task of central training of personnel of Laufbahn XI. On 07 March 1943 the Schule was dissolved. Its staff was moved to the Marinesanitätsschule s'Heerenberg, which until then was a subordinate Schule.
