The basic knowledge gained in the first semester is expanded in the subject block "Molecular Architecture of Life" and embedded in clinical contexts. Students gain a basic understanding of physical and biochemical processes in the human body and deal with their interaction in the subject of physiology. In preparation for the subsequent topic module, Nervous System and Senses, we also cover neurophysiological aspects such as neurotransmitters, synapses and membrane physiology. The importance of this strongly theoretical basic knowledge for later medical practice is made clear by means of clinical excursions: for example, there are lectures on relevant clinical pictures such as multiple sclerosis, hyperammonemia and cystic fibrosis. In addition, the course "Professional Field Exploration" sharpens the students' understanding of the medical profession. The Clinical Training Course is complemented by learning anamnesis techniques.
