At the School of Medicine of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), medical students are trained in the clinical program section after successfully passing the first section of the Medical Examination.
The preclinical program is organized as a joint training program of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) and TUM and is, for the most part, taking place at LMU. The clinical program section at TUM is attended by over 1,600 students. The common goal of the University Hospital rechts der Isar and the School of Medicine at TUM is to use outstanding research to develop scientific findings that both serve the fundamental understanding of disease processes and directly benefit patients. Thus, it is also a major concern of the school to prepare students for their future work by sharing state of the art knowledge and by demonstrating human commitment.
This effort pays off - in a nationwide comparison of degrees in the medical state examination, TUM has consistently ranked among the best for years.
