STUDY HUMAN MEDICINE
AT EDU MEDICAL
EDU Medical offers an innovative five-year Human Medicine (M.Med) degree programme. Our students study wherever they are and first gain a Bachelor and then a Master of Medicine during their studies. Our full time course combines theoretical study with up to 2,400 hours of supervised, hands-on clinical rotations in HELIOS Kliniken. Throughout their degree EDU students enjoy personalised 1-on-1 support from our mentors and medical expert tutors.
NO NUMERUS CLAUSUS REQUIRED
Our passion at EDU Medical is to equip doctors of the future with the skills and knowledge they need to be great physicians no matter where they are. We look for empathy and passion in our future students, as well as the necessary academic ability to study medicine. Admission to our Human Medicine Degree Programme is subject to a rigorous selection process which includes an admissions test conducted in partnership with ITB Consulting and an online interview.
CLINICAL EXPERIENCE FROM WEEK 10
EDU Medical students join their first clinical rotation in Week 10 of their first module. In each module our students gain hands-on practical experience with patients under the close supervision of experienced physicians and with a maximum doctor to student ratio of 2:6. By the end of their B.Med studies, our students will have spent 9 months (up to 1500 hours) gaining practical clinical experience in our partner teaching hospitals.
GAIN PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE AT HELIOS KLINIKEN
At EDU Medical we believe in creating great doctors who are highly focused on clinical experiences. For this reason EDU has partnered with HELIOS Kliniken teaching hospitals across Germany to give students high quality, patient-orientated practical experience under the close supervision from clinicians.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
"Studying at EDU is great: Teamwork, early work in a clinical environment, and the innovative module structure allow us students to quickly recognise a transfer between theory and practice which makes learning much more exciting and fascinating."
Get hands-on experience in best-in-class teaching hospitals within 10 weeks of starting your medical studies. From the very beginning!
Attend live video lectures, access learning resources, and collaborate on group work wherever you are via our digital campus.
We have partnered with ITB Consulting to ensure the best candidates have the opportunity to study medicine.
"I’d been in German medical school already, but I really enjoy the evidence-based medicine learning system at EDU which is way different than the German theory of medicine."
"It's great to be able to work closely with small groups and to help students on an individual basis to develop and thrive at EDU. Working closely with mentors means students develop their study skills, soft skills and academic skills, as well as improving their knowledge of important non-medical topics."
"The EDU concept sets a milestone in medical education. At EDU, you study medicine in a modern environment!"
"The biggest impact of EDU Medical's teaching approach is that it allows access to medical education in under-resourced environments. This is extremely important because the areas where we need the most providers are these environments themselves."
"My goal is for my students to graduate confident and ready to be physicians, and moreso encourage a life-long curiosity in continually growing their medical knowledge."
"With a little bit of guidance and openmindedness the virtual classroom can be as efficient as the traditional one. From my experience I would say that sometimes it is even more fruitful and engaging."
"At EDU Medical, we have made the way we teach human medicine as innovative as possible. Our students learn to use the latest digital tools, so they are well prepared to care for patients in a digital world."
Central to the student experience at EDU is our highly interactive and fully immersive, learner-centred approach, where our students learn practical skills in medical hospitals under the supervision of experienced professionals from the very beginning. With theoretical studies in small groups of no more than 6, not only do our graduates learn how to solve medical problems, they learn how to conduct research and discuss topics in a collaborative, rewarding, team-based spirit.
A modern medical education, for a modern generation
By combining our cutting edge digital learning platform, and immersive patient-oriented practical experience, EDU students receive a unique, and modern medical education which rises to our 21st century needs.
Wherever the art of medicine is loved,
there is also a love of humanity.
