The academic year is divided into three modules of 14 weeks. There are around eight weeks remaining for summer break and around two weeks for winter break, depending on the calendar year. Vacation periods usually fall in the calendar week 26 to week 37. The last week of the calendar year (week 52) and the first calendar week of the year and are also free as a holiday break for all students and staff.
Each module begins with eight weeks of extensive online learning.
Students study clinical, biomedical and non-technical matters to master specified learning objectives. Having laid the theoretical groundwork, a flex week follows to give room for testing and self-study time. Enjoying the time off and arranging your move to the teaching hospital for clinical rotation during this week is recommended.
The four-week clinical rotation phase that follows allows students to apply their knowledge by engaging with clinical experts. Under close supervision by experienced clinicians, our students form intense connections while gaining practical experience and receiving valuable feedback according to professional feedback standards. Each student is mentored by a dedicated expert who guides their journey, making the ratio mentor/mentee ratio exceptionally high.
The clinical module is followed by another flex week so students can return to their place of residence, take repeat tests as necessary and enjoy some free time.
