3. Course contents *

The communication skills are a sequel of the previous year: out of comprehensions of ‘active listening’ the way of history taking is introduced and practiced with intake and anamnesis emphasising a medical interview with all his aspects including giving information and motivating. Secondly, students learn to communicate in order to comfort patients during technical procedures and clinical examination. Students will have the opportunity to practise with simulated patients and to record a conversation with a hospitalized patient. The content of the medical-technical skills training sessions include the clinical investigation of  the heart and peripheral blood vessels; the lungs, the abdomen, the gynaecological investigation and suturing techniques.

Following information is susceptible to change during the academic year and therefore holds no obligation of result, rather a commitment to perform to the best ability.
