Study content The Master program (years 4-6) focuses on clinical-practical work with patients. Direct contact with the real world of medicine and with patients is crucial for students of medicine. The Master program consists of a combination of clinical lectures and clinical internships. The introductory course EKP clinical practice internship (14 weeks), which is taken at the beginning of the fourth year of study, prepares students for subsequent clinical block internships at various hospitals and at general practitioner's offices. Final Course I (14 weeks), which is taken at the beginning of the fifth year of study, and Final Course II (16 weeks), which is taken toward the end of the sixth year, serve as knowledge blocks and repetition courses that provide a framework for the practical elective year (WSJ). During the Master program, students must also write a master thesis on a specific topic with medical relevance. Students also take written examinations in the fourth and fifth years of their studies. In addition, a clinical-practical examination must be taken in the fifth year. Student performance is measured in the Master program as well on the basis of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). After the successful completion of three years of study in the Master program, students receive the title of Master of Medicine, which is also a requirement for admission to the Swiss Federal Examination in Medicine.
