Courses in English


A joint endeavor by LMU Munich and international partner universities for acquiring practical clinical and scientific competences while studying Medicine

Director: Prof. Dr. med. Inga Katharina Koerte

Neurology & Oncology Winter School

The Winter Schools offer a four-week intensive program, in English, to medical students in the areas of neurology and oncology. The programs include clinical training, lectures from leading experts and lab visits. Each incoming student is paired with a study buddy from LMU who helps them settle in as well as on the wards. The Schools also feature an entertaining social and cultural program.

Medical Research Summer School "Bench to Bedside and Back"

Organizing Committee in addition to LMU:

Jimma University, Ethiopia
Lund University, Sweden
Université Paris-Saclay, France
Washington University in St. Louis, USA

The Summer School is devoted to translational research and includes not only expert seminars with LMU and the international partners, but also training sessions on Patient Safety and Clinical Reasoning in the form of Clinical Case Discussions. The latter is also considered from the point of view of Global Health aspects and by comparing health systems. In addition, there is a longitudinal module where "Clinician Scientist" competences are acquired and promoted. These range from Abstract Writing to preparing for scientific conferences and the students’ later work as doctors (the doctor as a teacher in the clinical environment) and Academic Feedback.

History Taking

Organizing Committee in addition to LMU:

Università degli Studi di Bari Aldo Moro, Italy
Washington University in St. Louis, USA

The Virtual Course on "History Taking" focuses on medical history taking and decision making. In the process, it touches on important aspects such as Racism in Medicine or Intercultural Communication. Besides teaching and training by LMU and the international faculty, peer teaching activities cultivate a dialogue between medical students.

In the virtual Oncology course, students from the University of Toronto and LMU are given specialist support in the subject. Read more
