Neurology Winter School

A series of tutorials, bedside teaching, communication training and lab visits


Center for Stroke and Dementia Research

Issues for consideration include:

  • Principles of neurology and neural science
  • Intersections with neurosurgery, neuroradiology and psychiatry
  • Methods of diagnosis and treatment

The international students choose a field of interest for patient contact and rounds and integrate into our medical team during the entire course of the 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.

Target group / prerequisites

The elective addresses senior medical students, particularly those from LMU partner universities, who attend this four-week rotation together with senior medical students from LMU.

A "study buddy" from LMU 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, a course certificate is granted to international and LMU students. In addition, a certificate as an internship ("Zeugnis über die Tätigkeit als Famulus/Famula") is granted to LMU students.
