BACHELOR OF MEDICINE
This extensive three-year programme consists of nine modules and a bachelor’s thesis. It is more than just a preparation for a consecutive master’s programme in medicine. Students who have attained the EDU bachelor’s degree will have acquired a solid foundation in basic medical knowledge. Once all the required modules have been successfully completed, the student will receive a Bachelor of Medicine degree. The bachelor’s degree is awarded after 190 ECTS credit points have been earned and the bachelor’s thesis has been completed, usually after three years of study. It is recognised as equivalent to medical bachelor’s degrees with a similar number of credit points across the European Union and beyond.

EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICINE
It can be difficult to find a good doctor; but it is easy to recognise a great doctor, because excellence in medicine is only achieved by practitioners who hone certain easily discernible attributes. If you recognise these qualities within yourself, this bachelor’s programme will provide access to the best medical education, allowing you to turn these attributes into professional habits. This programme welcomes applicants who show the ability to develop these skills, grounded in a strong motivation to become first-rate medical professionals.  
A course of study can train and promote some of the traits a good physician needs. But some are rooted deep within a student’s personality: passion for learning, courage to make difficult decisions and curiosity to keep up with the latest research. We carefully select those applicants we feel will benefit most from a programme that combines exceptional technical skill with outstanding empathetic care for patients. The task is larger than qualifying medical professionals. Our goal is to prepare a generation with multiple levels of expertise. Sensitivity to patient values is key to delivering optimal healthcare. Clinical expertise gained during training needs to be integrated with the best available evidence in decision-making for effective therapeutic measures. Mastering these complex, and sometimes conflicting, aspects can turn a good professional into a great doctor.

To treat illness in a targeted way and with the fewest side-effects is the overriding goal of our evidence-based approach to studying medicine. The principles of demonstrated effects based on sound methodology form an integral part of medical education, because the decisions of doctors on integrating research developments into patient care rely on scientific studies. Experience gained in research therefore enables medical professionals to better read the relevant academic literature and to judge the design of scientific studies.
PRACTICAL COMPETENCIES
A clearly defined set of basic practical skills and competencies must be learned and demonstrated by all of our students. Clinical rotations at our partner hospitals allow students to observe and develop these skills. Among them are technical competencies in everyday clinical operations, from physical examinations and treatments to more complex procedures and comprehensive care. Regular feedback from supervising physicians enables students to detect their areas of weakness early and to continuously improve themselves.

Students will learn how patient safety plays a significant role in all attempts to fight disease. This holds true both from the perspective of individual patients and in the big picture of healthcare and medical research in society. For patient safety to be achieved reliably, technical skill and non-technical competencies must be applied together. The relevant practical learning objectives are assessed continuously during the clinical rotations by clinical experts. Constructive feedback at the end of each clinical rotation phase ensures exposure to clinical practice that is the basis for developing necessary competencies. Practising medicine is not just about a commitment to healing patients and fighting disease. It also involves the emotional strain of dealing with pain, suffering, and death – often on a daily basis. Doctors everywhere face the continuous challenge of combining empathy and professionalism, long hours at the hospital and their own family life. Part of students learning to be  medical professionals involves them taking care of their own physical and mental well-being to create a balance between their dedication to patients and their private lives.

We train students to be aware that a healthy working environment is a key component of successful medical practice. Particular attention is paid to the development of personal traits in this area: Acquire the necessary habits for integrating work and life early on in your study of medicine, and you will have a built a solid foundation for your entire career. 
FIELDS OF STUDY AND SPECIALISATION
Our curriculum includes core subject areas from the biomedical sciences. You will study the foundations of anatomy, physiology and biochemistry as well as hygiene, cell biology, pharmacology, pathology, microbiology, and immunology. Clinical informatics, clinical chemistry, ethics, biomedical statistics, and epidemiology are part of the curriculum and supervised by experts from the respective fields.
Specialisation is available in a total of 17 areas of clinical practice that are spread across the bachelor’s course and the consecutive master’s programme: Anaesthesia, General Practice/Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Dermatology, Urology, Surgery, Diagnostic Radiology, Orthopaedics/Traumatology, Ear/Nose/Throat, Palliative Care, Ophthalmology, Psychiatry, Obstetrics/Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Neurology, Geriatrics, and Complementary Medicine.
