The Faculty of Medicine and the University Hospital of the Munich Ludwig Maximilian University are among Europe’s leading centres of academic medicine. The LMU offers medical students from around the world the chance to gain an insight into medical research. In a four-week programme, students obtain a better understanding of the diversity of medical research.

Physicians have to make their treatment desicions based on empirically proven evidence. But to do so they need to understand the medical literature and to interpret the data published in different studies.

From Bench to Bedside students:

  • are exposed to medical research in an academic medical environment.
  • learn about the various research methods as well as the pros and cons of using them for different scientific problems.
  • meet scientists undertaking research at the LMU.

During lab visits, students familiarise themselves with lab work and are able to ask questions and discuss ideas with experts in different fields.

The opportunity to engage in ethical discussions with other international students from different cultural backgrounds and healthcare delivery systems and to talk about about the benefits and limitations of research will be an enriching experience. Students will also be able to learn more about scientific career development and how research findings are incorporated into patient care. 

The Summer School also features an entertaining social and cultural program. On weekends, students visit nearby attractions such as Neuschwanstein Castle and the city of Nuremberg.
