Neurology & Oncology Winter School

The aim of the four-week program at LMU is to acquaint students with everyday routines in an oncology or neurology hospital. The mornings are taken up with ward visits and teaching rounds, in the afternoons the students attend seminars from a wide range of specialist disciplines and learn from leading experts. The courses also feature clinical case discussions, lab visits and workshops on topics such as Breaking Bad News. Each incoming student is paired with a Study Buddy from LMU to help them settle in as well as to assist on the wards. Along with clinical training and insights into research at LMU and the German healthcare system, the participants can look forward to an interesting accompanying and social program in and around Munich. The courses can count toward the clinical elective (Famulatur) for LMU students.
