Education Medical Psychology
The lessons of the Medical Psychology Section provide you, dear medical students, with basic psychological and sociological knowledge that will be important for your later work as a doctor. The topics are very varied and at the end of the 2-semester programme you can answer questions such as What is personality? What are perceptual errors? What is empathy and how do our emotions influence attention, memory and decision-making behaviour? What are the basics of social interaction and what are the characteristics of medical communication? In addition, we will discuss important medical-sociological topics such as the architecture of our health care system and discuss current challenges for patient care and ethical questions arising, for example, from demographic change in our society and the innovative possibilities of high-performance medicine.
In the winter semester (1st semester of medicine) our programme starts with a main lecture series, which we would like to recommend you to attend, and a course series.
In the summer semester (4th semester of medicine) the main lecture series will be continued. Parallel to this we will teach you in a seminar series.
At the end of both subject semesters, there will be a learning success check in the form of a multiple-choice examination based on the content of the courses of the respective subject semester.
