In addition to the UKD, you also have the opportunity to complete your clinical internship year or individual tertials at the academic teaching hospitals at HHU. These external hospitals have been accredited by the Medical Faculty of HHU and fulfill all the requirements stipulated by the Approbationsordnung für Ärzte (licensing regulations for physicians). The PJ training in the academic teaching hospitals is also designed to be competency-oriented, aligned with the Superordinate Düsseldorf Learning Goals for this stage of study, and takes into account the guideline for the clinical internship training of medical students during the 3rd qualification stage (Q3) or the internship year.
In the Academic Teaching Hospitals you can take the (compulsory) tertials Surgery and Internal Medicine as well as electives. The choice of electives depends on what is offered by the respective external hospital. Below you will find an overview of the HHU Academic Teaching Hospitals and the electives offered there:
If you are interested in one of the above-mentioned elective subjects and apply for a place, please select the subject in parallel in the CIY portal for the corresponding tertial and apply for a hardship case there. If you are allocated a place by the institute or clinic on the basis of your application, your hardship application will be confirmed in the CIY portal by the staff from the study organization department (Q3/M3). You are then guaranteed a place in this elective in the corresponding tertial. The places in the (compulsory) subjects Surgery and Internal Medicine will be taken by you like all other students within the general online application procedure. If you do not receive a place in the subject-specific application and selection procedures, you will be informed of this by the subjects in good time so that you can look for alternatives for the elective subject before the start of the general online allocation procedure and select this in the further course of the allocation of places. Students in special circumstances who wish to take advantage of preferential allocation of places in the online allocation must also participate in the application and selection procedures of the following subjects in order to obtain a PJ place there.
