Dear students,

a warm wellcome to the winter semester 2022/2023.
In the current semester, the lectures are held in hybrid form. This means that you have the choice of attending the lecture on site in presence or online via Zoom. The courses of the winter semester 2022/2023 will take place in presence.

For further information, please regularly consult the pages on eCampus for Course and on Basis for Course and Lecture

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.

Where do our lessons take place?

The lectures will be offered in hybrid form in the summer semester 2022. This means that you have the choice of attending the lecture on-site in presence or online via Zoom. The seminars of the summer semester 2022 will be held in attendance.
