Block course and Rotations in the 5th Study Year

Medical studies are carried out not only in the classroom, but they are rounded off by various practical training phases. The working language is exclusively German. Students must prove minimum level B2 (at the time of application).

In your planning, you have to take into consideration that practical training phases will be carried out at the university hospital in Ulm or other teaching hospitals in Ulm (but not in any other teaching hospital in the region). Practical training is always full time (whole days) and cannot be combined with attendance of other courses.

Block courses usually run for 1 - 3 weeks and are carried out during the clinical study phase. It is possible to enroll for a full semester of block courses. It is not possible to combine courses and block courses within any given semester. However, it is possible to do a block course after the lecture period for the course semester has ended. Please note: you can choose each block only once during any given semester.

Clinical electives or final year rotations usually run between 2 - 4 months. They can be carried out outside our regular semester rhythm, but only during those time windows which we offer for individual periods.

Please note that depending on the chosen field of specialization, different restriction apply regarding the minimum or maximum duration or language requirement.
