Erweiterungsstudium Medizinische Forschung

Medical Research extension program


The Medical Research extension program enables acquisition of background knowledge and basic competencies as related to basic medical research and clinical research and aims to make it possible for students to develop professional competencies for their later professional careers. Based on the university’s basic principle of research-guided teaching, students are prepared for the doctoral program (in medical science or the PhD program) and become capable of independently approaching work on existing scientific problems and thus conducting research projects.
