Practical year ('Praktisches Jahr', PJ)
The PJ consists of three training periods with a duration of 4 months each:
- Internal Medicine
Fundamentals of clinical medicine
Module 23 is an interdisciplinary clinical basic year which integrates internal medicine and surgery. It is made up of 8 blocks, each covering a major aspect from both the conservative and the surgical perspective. Every block has a duration of 4 weeks and is offered 4 times during the semester, effectively allowing foreign students to choose only the topics they want or need. Students who stay for two semesters have the chance to finish internal and surgical medicine, orthopedics, urology and anesthesiology by completing Module 23.
Blocks: Blood & Immunology, Endocrine system, Cardiovascular system, Gastrointestinal system, AINS (Anesthesiology, intensive care medicine, emergency medicine, pain therapy), Muscoloskeletal system, Respiratory system, Nephrourogenital system
During the organ blocks as well as in the course of comprehensive lectures several cross-field disciplines will be taught as well: radiology und nuclear medicine, radiotherapy, infectiology, rheumatology, emergency medicine, clinical pharmacology and pathology.
