About this course
The Medical Preparatory (MedPrep) Year is designed for students with a passion for medicine and who have their sights set on pursuing a medical degree. Students acquire fundamental knowledge in medical studies and natural sciences, gain hands-on experience in laboratory courses and medical internships, and improve their prospects for getting into medical school.
The two-semester pre-degree program is taught in both English and German. It provides a professional qualification timeline for gaining admission to medical schools in Germany and other attractive study locations in Europe. The program also facilitates being admitted to other health care-related programs of study, such as Clinical Psychology or Public Health. The curriculum includes individual application training as well as entrance exam preparation for formats such as TMS, HamNAT and MedAT. International admission testing for the SAT is also included.
MedPrep students are able to take full advantage of the many learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom. They will attend challenging undergraduate classes in the natural sciences, participate in professional skills courses covering topics such as medical ethics, patient consultation and academic learning, and sharpen their intercultural skills.
