The Practical Year


The practical year ends with the Second State Examination. Prior to the Second State Examination students have to attend the Practical Year at the university hospitals, one of the affiliated teaching hospitals of the Medical Faculty or equivalent institutions.



During this phase of clinical education, students are expected to broaden their experience and improve medical knowledge and skills. Students learn to deal with individual cases and carry out medical tasks under supervision. Active participation in clinical meetings, discussions and conferences form another aspect of the training. Theoretical training accompanies duty on the ward.

Training in the Practical Year consists of three sixteen-week practicals completed full-time in a University or affiliated Teaching Hospital. One day per week is reserved to continued medical education throughout the three subjects. Medicine and surgery are mandatory subjects. The third subject may be selected by the student from a range of sixteen different disciplines.
