Innovative medical technology
Students obtain the required medical skills and have the opportunity to conduct research-based experiments in laboratories equipped with the latest medical technology. These include laboratories for biology, chemistry and microscopy.
The medical students are taught with the help of a 3D-virtual interactive dissection table, one of the most advanced medical technologies in the world. The use of this innovative technology helps students to explore the anatomy of the human body in a varied and vivid way. With the help of 3D representations, anatomical structures can be interactively conveyed, and organs, blood vessels and nerve fibres can be viewed from all sides.
