Dean Prof. Dieterich emphasized: "I am very happy to welcome our new students in presence on campus. The interaction of our students with the lecturers, the physicians, the nursing professions and, of course, our patients sets the foundation for your later qualification as physicians, but also as communicators, scientists in the health care system and in society. Especially in times when medical studies and the demands on practicing physicians are changing rapidly, this form of direct knowledge transfer is particularly valuable."
In the 4th year of the "class of family physicians (m, w, d)", among other things, 9 students from the rural quota are introduced to family medicine, for example, with regular practice days with established general practitioners under the organizational coordination of Dr. Robin John within the competence center HAWIRA. With approx. 89 percent of the 195 first-year students of human medicine, most of the medical students come from Germany, 32 of them from the state of Baden-Württemberg. 20 international students come from Albania, Egypt, Bulgaria, Greece, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Cameroon, Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, the Czech Republic, Turkey and Ukraine, among other countries.
In accordance with the regulations of the 18th Containment Ordinance of the State of Saxony-Anhalt and the Infection Protection Act, masks are mandatory during teaching events, as well as SARS-CoV-2 antigen testing, especially during teaching events with patients contact.
