The Summer School “Bench to Bedside and Back“ is dedicated to translational research. In an innovative, international setting, medical students from around the world gain numerous insights into research from different specialist fields and learn how research findings are incorporated into patient care. Medical expertise is also taught through Clinical Case Discussions and training sessions on Patient Safety.
In addition, there is a longitudinal module where "Clinician Scientist" competences are acquired and promoted. These range from Abstract Writing to preparing for scientific conferences and Academic Feedback. The international network universities include Jimma University in Ethiopia, Université Paris-Saclay in France, Lund University in Sweden and Washington University in the US.
