highest completion and pass rate nationwide within standard period of study
no hidden costs, attractive financing possibilities
The state-recognized Brandenburg Medical Model Curriculum stands for practice-oriented and science-based teaching concepts and the integration of research, student education and patient care. Medical studies at the MHB have a strong focus on clinical practice and on patients and aim to provide an optimum of professional and personal qualification so that students are prepared to meet the challenges of their future working life.
Character and personal development play a core role in our individual admission procedures and in the practice-oriented courses. Our focus in selecting students is not on school-leaving grades (numerus clausus), but on individual suitability and subject-related work experience. We therefore set great store by motivation and previous experience.
What others do not have
Medical studies at the MHB differ from other medical schools in essential points:
Unlike other medical schools, the MHB relies on its own group of university hospitals and is therefore in a position to offer full-value medical studies of the highest medical and academic standing, including the doctoral and post-doctoral level.
The Medical Model Curriculum at the MBH has given up the traditional division into pre-clinical and clinical phase of instruction in favor of an integrated and practice-oriented structure. Students benefit greatly because the theoretical basics in biology, chemistry and physics are taught in direct reference to clinical practice and individual cases and are therefore much easier to grasp compared to the conventional curriculum.
As a consequence, the preliminary medical examination is not part of the MHB Medical Model Curriculum.
This means that MHB medial students do not run the risk of failing at this hurdle. The rate of students who complete their medical studies and pass the final exam within the standard period of study is outstanding at the MHB.
Right from the start, instruction has a high percentage of practical content and is organized in small POL groups with eight students maximum.
Latest results from the “Progress Test Medicine” and medical exams attest excellent conditions in terms of student supervision and quality of instruction.
Apart from its university hospital group the MHB has an extended network of additional cooperating clinics and teaching practices. Students can acquaint themselves with a variety of clinical facilities and specialist departments, which is extremely helpful in the choice of a future specialization.
Last but not least the MHB offers graduates the possibility of a doctorate in all fields of medical research.
The Brandenburg Medical Model Curriculum, state-recognized since 2015, has been designed in compliance with § 41 of licensing regulations for physicians (ÄApprO). Implemented in collaboration with our university hospitals in Bernau, Brandenburg an der Havel, Neuruppin and Rüdersdorf and numerous further cooperating clinics and academic teaching practices, it offers practice-oriented, science-based, competence-centric and interdisciplinary medical studies of the highest academic and medical standing.
The curriculum is organized in various modules along defined learning objectives.
The focus in the first stage of studies (semesters 1 - 5) is on organ systems of the body. The healthy human body with its organs, anatomy, functions and disorders as well as resulting illnesses and treatment options is explored from the perspective of basic sciences and clinical disciplines. Internal examinations equivalent to the first preliminary medical examination take place during the first five semesters.
Starting with the second semester, our medical students perform practical periods with resident doctors in the Brandenburg region. Practice Days offer ample opportunity for observation and actual application of skills under supervision.
During the second stage (semesters 6 - 10) students acquire more in-depth knowledge of various medical fields. Interdisciplinary modules serve to expand clinical knowledge and practical skills through repetition of content with progressive learning. This close integration of theory and practice continues with structured clinical internships in university hospitals, academic teaching hospitals and other cooperating institutions.
Early and intensive practical experience helps students to grasp correlations between scientific fundamentals, disease patterns and the experience of illness. In addition they learn how to gradually assume responsibility in patient care.
Having completed the second stage, students sit the second part of the medical examination, followed by the Practical Year.
Medical studies also comprise a three-month period of nursing service, first aid training and a clinical elective of four months.
