Oncology Winter School

Under the direction of experienced faculty members, the students are taken through a challenging but highly stimulating learning program. They spend the first part of the day on the oncology wards, learning the daily routines, accompanying patients from reception through diagnostic procedures to therapy sessions. The afternoons are taken up with courses on the latest diagnostic methods or therapeutic approaches, and discussion of individual case studies in small groups.

In addition, they work with actors on aspects of problem-oriented communication, a vital element of the medical professional’s skill set. This gives them the opportunity to learn how to handle tasks such as breaking bad news to a patient or helping patients to cope with their fears as they face the prospect of stressful treatments.

As well as getting to know the day-to-day routines on the wards, the students are introduced to clinical laboratory work, familiarize themselves with radiology or hyperthermia, try their hand at image-based functional diagnostics and attend the weekly oncological review conducted by the staff specialists at the Medical Center.

A German "study buddy" is assigned to each participant from abroad, and helps to pilot his or her partner through the complexities of hospital practice.

Upon completion of the elective, the certificate "Zeugnis über die Tätigkeit als Famulus/Famula (Certificate concerning practical clinical experience) gemäß Anlage 6 zu § 7 Abs. 4 Satz 2 ÄAppO" is granted to LMU students.

On weekends, there’s time to relax and enjoy what Munich and its surroundings have to offer: Students go on skiing trips together, attend a concert or a ballet, view the paintings in the Pinakothek, or visit nearby attractions such as Neuschwanstein Castle and Salzburg.
