The Famulaturstipendium is a one-time payment in the amount of 420€ to the student. Scholarships are awarded partly based on performance in medical school and partly based on extracurricular involvement.
According to academic performance: based on the performance (overall grade of the Medical Intermediate Examination or point average of the previous block final examinations) of all applicants, a ranking of the applications is established and the available funds are distributed to the top ranks.
After extracurricular involvement: you may also qualify for a scholarship through your extracurricular involvement. In this case, your extracurricular involvement must be detailed in the letter of motivation.
Excluded from the scholarships are students with concurrent funding such as the Deutschlandstipendium, scholarships from Begabtenförderungswerke or the bvmd. Students can only receive a one-time study abroad scholarship.
Following the stay abroad, an experience report must be prepared.
