MISUatLMU: Oncology Winter School
In the course of a four-week program at LMU, medical students from around the world get a close-up view of the everyday routines in an oncology clinic.
Klinikum der Universität München
The elective addresses senior medical students, particulary those from LMU partner universities, who attend this four-week rotation together with senior LMU medical students. Prospective applicants who have already graduated from medical school are not eligible to participate.
They spend the first part of the day on the oncology wards, learning the daily routines, accompanying patients from reception through diagnostic procedures to therapy sessions. The afternoons are taken up with courses on the latest diagnostic methods or therapeutic approaches, and discussion of individual case studies in small groups. As well as getting to know the day-to-day routines on the wards, the students are introduced to clinical laboratory work, familiarize themselves with radiology or hyperthermia, try their hand at image-based functional diagnostics, visit the Rehabilitation Clinic in Bad Trissl, and attend the weekly oncological review conducted by the staff specialists at the Medical Center. A German "study buddy" is assigned to each participant from abroad, and helps to pilot his or her partner through the complexities of hospital practice.
