EU-wide recognition of the degree title
The degree is an accredited 6-year study programme and after graduation it grants you the possibility to practice medicine. The degree is also recognised throughout the EU. Our offer aims highly motivated people, who want to attain their goal, studying medicine, and are not discouraged by the high grades needed in order to study at a state university. We want to encourage and support them individually on their way to achieving their goals. Theoretical knowledge alone does not make anyone a good physician – we rely on a concept imbedding research, teaching and practice.

Extensive practical experience
By working in small groups and through preparatory simulation exercises, students acquire in-depth knowledge and expertise and they learn how to approach patients and how to talk effectively to them. They should learn how to apply theoretical knowledge in real contexts and gain practical experience. For this reason, many hours of practical training are integrated into the curriculum. Beginning with the 3rd academic year, practical training is taking place within clinical disciplines under the guidance of specialised academic staff.
Excellent guidance and support
Lessons in small groups at a state-of-the-art teaching and research campus guarantee high-quality medical education.
