Fourth Year of Study

In the 4th year of study, you will have the opportunity to further develop and deepen the practical skills you have already learnt through the numerous practical block weeks. In particular, spending several weeks in our academic teaching hospitals will give you new insights for your future career. In addition to this practically orientated training element, you will consolidate and deepen your theoretical knowledge in the study blocks.

Fourth Year's Tracks

The 4th academic year consists of a total of four tracks (4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4), each with 30 small groups (1-30, 31-60, 61-90, 91-120). A small group consists of a maximum of three students. Before the start of the semester, you have the opportunity to choose a specific track as part of the online enrolment process. You will find out exactly which small groups you can choose from from the online enrolment staff in due course. 

During a practical block, you will mainly take lessons in your small group. In a study block, on the other hand, the large group determines the composition of a seminar. A large group usually consists of five small groups (1-5, 6-10, 11-15 etc.). You can view your timetable for the respective blocks on this page. Further information on practical lessons (start, meeting point, etc.) can be found in the practical block manual of the respective institution. If you have any questions regarding content, please contact the relevant teacher directly.

Study and Practice Modules

The study modules of study years 4 and 5 include central clinical subjects such as internal medicine, surgery, ophthalmology, ear, nose and throat medicine, neurology, orthopedics, etc. In addition, you will go through three "integrated study and practice modules", in which the practice modules are interlinked with the study modules in terms of organization and content.
