Lecture: “Why it is Important to Learn Anatomy from Minute 1” (Lecture Language: English)

On December 8, 2022, Hon.-Prof. Dr. med. Dirk Jentschura will be a guest speaker at ReachHigher organized at the UMFST-UMCH Campus in Hamburg-Bahrenfeld. The former Chief Physician of the Clinic for General and Visceral Surgery of the UMFST-UMCH Teaching Hospital Deaconess Foundation Hospital Speyer will give a lecture entitled “Why it is Important to Learn Anatomy from Minute 1”.

A sound knowledge of human anatomy is essential for physicians in all specialties. After all, the human body is always the subject of medical treatment. Hon.-Prof. Jentschura knows that such knowledge is just as important for understanding the course of diseases as it is for many other areas, such as the correct performance of computer tomographies and ultrasound examinations. In his lecture, he therefore discusses a variety of body parts – for example, the thyroid and parathyroid glands, gall bladder, stomach and rectum. Based on these body parts and by means of videos showing surgical procedures using probe images, he will illustrate the importance of communicating the internal structure of the human organism.



Entertaining, innovative and condensed: At ReachHigher, experts from a network of extraordinary personalities give lectures on the topics of medicine and research as well as leadership/motivation.

UMFST-UMCH’s ReachHigher lecture series pushes and strengthens the know-how of our students as well as their personal development – beyond their daily schedule. We look forward to accompanying you on your individual way to self-realization!
