The preclinical phase takes place predominantly in Germany. The first three years of study include three modules of two weeks each, which are completed in Targu Mures. The clinical phase (third to the sixth 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.
