Practice-oriented study

Patient-oriented and practice-oriented, science-based and with focus on innovative research: the Degree Programme 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 programme is to provide students with a holistic introduction to all fields, skills and abilities relevant to the profession. This includes teaching basic knowledge about bodily functions, learning human pathology including emotional aspects as well as the acquisition of knowledge and skills needed for diagnostics, therapy, prevention and rehabilitation, and development of communication skills.

Studying in Germany

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.

Bologna-conformity

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.
