  • Special features regarding teaching
    The inter-disciplinary training of the students in Human Medicine begins in the "pre-clinical learning centre", in which the participating disciplines are brought together under one roof. In the clinical study phase, the students' career focus is supported by a wide range of optional required subjects which enables the specialisation on an "academic-scientific career" or a "clinical-practical focus". In the clinical study section, patient-based teaching is supplemented by simulation and practical training in the Rudolf Frey Learning Clinic.
  • Arrangements of special exercises at the department
    Students will receive hands-on instruction in at least one course format per semester at the Rudolf Frey Learning Clinic beginning in the 5th semester. Two seminar and eight group study rooms are available. Blended learning concepts are used to prepare for practical teaching. Courses are often taught on an interdisciplinary and sometimes interprofessional basis. The skills acquired can be consolidated and expanded in peer-to-peer courses in the Skills Lab Mainz. Classes take place with simulation patients, skills trainers or high-fidelity simulators.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads

  • Special features regarding research activities
    The research profile is characterized in particular by the cutting-edge field of "Translational Medicine": Three collaborative research projects - the "Research Centre for Immunotherapy", the "Translational Neurosciences Research Centre" and the "Centre for Translational Vascular Biology" - as well as the research focus "Biomaterials, Tissues and Cells in Science" are conducting research in this area, as are the graduate school TRANSMED and the profile area "Resilience, Adaptation and Longevity". The University Medical Centre supports various special research areas (31.12.20: 8SFBs, 3 SFB/TRR).
  • Other special features
    In the pre-clinical study phase, students spend their time training on the university campus. In the clinical study phase, training is carried out in close proximity to Nursing Care on the grounds of the University Medical Centre Mainz. In the clinical study section, patient-based teaching is supplemented by simulation and practical training in the Rudolf Frey Learning Clinic.
