Man and Environment

The interactions between humans, their health and their (natural) environment are diverse and complex.

The study module "Man and Environment" has set itself the task of making these diverse interrelationships visible by means of individual, essential aspects and to work out their significance for the medical profession. We look at work, environmental, family and social influences. These include, for example, the effects of the workplace (especially on one's own health), environmental pollution, toxic substances, medications, climate change, the family situation or aspects of the health care system.

However, we also deal with health-related legal issues that physicians are confronted with on a daily basis in their professional lives. How do guideline and limit values come about? What do I have to consider when assessing fitness to drive or work (in)ability? And finally: How do I manage to integrate my knowledge of interactions into my medical actions?
