The university is aware of the consequences and the responsibility, which it carries concerning this matter. The young adults should be enabled to have a qualitatively good study course, concerning the professional perspective, but also great student days.

To make this possible for young adults, they also get the opportunity to improve themselves, beyond the courses, from the start and to take part in research projects or to continuously advance their knowledge and skills in laboratories and seminars. A high level of practical relevance and small learning groups makes this possible. A good education brings out good medical practitioners.
