Study program: Human Medicine
Study Medicine at UMCH in Hamburg
Patient- and practice-oriented, science-based and focused on innovative research: the Degree Program in Human Medicine offers an academic education at the highest level. Once the motivation-oriented admission procedure has been successfully completed, studies can be started without waiting time. During the 6-year English-language study, students earn a total of 360 ECTS points.
Aim of the study
The main goal of the study program is to provide students with a holistic introduction to all fields, skills and abilities relevant to the profession. This includes the teaching of basic knowledge about bodily functions, the learning of human pathology – including emotional aspects as well as the acquisition of knowledge and skills needed for diagnostics, therapy, prevention and rehabilitation – and the development of communication skills.
Studying in Germany
The preclinical phase takes place predominantly in Germany. The first three years of study include 3 modules of 2 weeks each, which are completed in Targu Mures. The clinical phase (3rd to the 6th year) can be completed in clinics from all over Germany (Option A) or in Targu Mures (Option B). The degree in human medicine consists of 6 years altogether. The language of instruction is English. Bedside-teaching in German hospitals will be held in the German language.
The study of human medicine begins annually in September. Each academic year consists of 28 weeks of teaching divided into two semesters (Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer). The use of the European Credit Transfer Systems (ECTS) guarantees the EU-wide comparability and Bologna-conformity of the curriculum.
