Practitioner Internships

The techniques trained in the Clinical Training Course are applied by our students to real patients in the Practitioner Internships, which take place in the practices of established teaching physicians. As early as the end of the first year of study, they can deepen and expand their previously acquired knowledge and skills in physical examination (skin, musculoskeletal system, nervous system, eye, ear, nose and throat, lymph nodes) in the first Practitioner Internship.

In the 4th semester, students complete the one-week Practitioner Internship 2, further develop their skills in history taking and physical examination (abdomen, cardiovascular system, respiratory system), and acquire medical clerkship readiness.

This practical application is deepened by the two-week Practitioner Internship 3 during the practice modules of the 3rd year of study, in which special anamnesis and examination techniques are tested and trained.

Notes on the Practitioner Internship 2 (PP 2)

The one-week PP2 Practitioner Internship takes place during the lecture period in order to keep the lecture-free time in the summer semester free for a nursing internship, the first clinical training course or similar. According to the timetable, you will not have any seminars during the PP2 week. However, you cannot attend lectures on Monday and Tuesday while you are working with patients in the practices during this week. In consultation with the student council and the Q1 teaching committee, the ifam offers students who do not wish to miss the lectures the opportunity to complete PP2 during the lecture-free period in the summer; however, the ifam cannot then guarantee either the desired practice or the desired period. Please note that only students who successfully complete the PP2 in the summer semester during the regular period and thus acquire the clinical training course qualification in good time can complete their first clinical training course during the lecture-free period in the summer semester.

If you would like to make use of this exception, please send an e-mail to ifam (Alice Krahe):
