Nursing Service

The nursing service gives you, as a medical student, an insight into everyday hospital procedures and nursing activities. Proof of nursing service must be provided before the start of the 3rd year of study, at the latest by the start of the first practice module in the 3rd year of study (see study regulations § 6, 2).

The internship can be completed from the date of obtaining the university entrance qualification; that is, for example, in the case of the German Abitur, from the date noted on the "Zeugnis der allgemeinen Hochschulreife". The nursing internship comprises a total of 90 days, which can be split into units of at least 30 days.

We recommend that you complete at least 30 and, if possible, up to 60 days before the start of your studies, so that you only have to complete an additional 30 days (or correspondingly more) during the lecture-free period during your studies. Please note in your planning that "lecture-free period" also means "examination-free period". You can therefore only start your nursing service after the 16th week of the semester ("exam week").

We are guided by the information on nursing provided on the LPA pages.

Please submit your proof of nursing service as well as certificates (if available) in the original (or as officially certified copies) together with the corresponding appplication for recognition to from the Student and Examination Administration.
