About this course

This 6-week course is an intensive training for the medical knowledge test and is, therefore, the ideal preparation. Medical lecturers will repeat the most important examination topics from central medical fields in a practical manner. This includes discussions, role plays and practical exercises, making learning a lot easier for you.
