Practical year

Interested medical students of the PMU Salzburg and Munich Technical University can complete their "surgery" practical year tertial at the BGU Murnau. This is done after consultation and according to arrangement of the deanery of the University Hospital Rechts der Isar.

The practical year-tertial runs over a period of four months and provides a defined rotation between the Departments in monthly exchange, however wishes are taken into account as far as possible. This ensures that all areas of surgery, trauma surgery and orthopedics are covered and the practical year students receive a broad education.
