Center for Stroke and Dementia Research

  • Principles of neurology and neural science

Exemplary schedule

The international students choose a field of interest for patient contact and rounds and integrate into our medical team during the whole Winter School. They hospitalize patients and discuss the anamnesis of physical examination and test results as well as the adequate treatment with their respective ward doctors or consultants.

Furthermore, specific tutorials are held which instruct the students how to discuss clinical cases in a problem-oriented and cooperative manner. Small group training sessions and seminars involve diagnostic tools in neurology, interpersonal communication, e.g. "Breaking Bad News", simulations based on standardized patients and other elements of the medical professional’s skill set. read more

Taught by eminent medical specialists, the students also receive invaluable help from their German "study buddies". read more

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 the city of Nuremberg.
