Programme content

Years 1-2
The main focus of the preclinical education is on those basic and supplementary subjects that lay the foundations for the following years of study. The focus of study years 1 and 2 is therefore primarily the teaching of biochemical, biophysical and molecular and cell biological foundations of medicine. as well as on on instructing students in the anatomical and physiological structures of the human body.

Years 3-6
At UMCH, students initially acquire theoretical knowledge of clinical medicine in time windows of six to ten weeks, which are then deepened in the context of clinical internships in the UMCH teaching hospitals. The clinic internships take place in small groups of a maximum of ten people. In this way, the students get an impression of the direct work with the patient and get to know the diverse fields of medicine.

Core subjects include pathology, immunology, pharmacology, neurology, ophthalmology and otolaryngology, gynecology, urology and pneumology
