Human Medicine

Students of Human Medicine acquire basic knowledge of human body functions and diseases. The degree program focuses on conveying skills that qualify for the work as a physician, including diagnostics and treatment of diseases. Other key areas are the promotion of health, prevention of disease and rehabilitation.

The degree program is divided into several phases. At first, students acquire basic knowledge in biology, physics and chemistry, along with an introduction to the human body and specific functions. This is followed by courses discussing possible diseases as well as examination and treatment methods. While students do not specialize in a certain field during the program, individual fields, such as surgery, dermatology, neurology, forensic medicine or pediatrics, do play a role in academic training.

During a compulsory nursing internship, all students gather first experience in practical patient care. Completing another four months of practical clinical training in clinics or medical practices is also part of the program. The program is followed by the Practical Year, which includes three periods of practical training.

Passing the Medical State Examination, graduates of the program receive the license to practice medicine.

Possible lines of work:

Physician in hospitals/clinics/health authorities/private practices, independent examiner at health/pension insurance companies, company physician, positions at professional associations, journalism (medical journals), academia (teaching/research at universities, research institutions, etc.)

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
