Neurology Winter School

Issues for consideration will include:

  • Principles of neurology and neural science
  • Intersections with neurosurgery, neuroradiology and psychiatry
  • Methods of diagnosis and treatment

The international students will choose a field of interest for patient contact and rounds and will integrate into our medical team during the whole Winter School. They will hospitalize patients and discuss the anamnesis of physical examination and test results as well as the adequate treatment with their respective ward doctors or consultants.

Furthermore, specific tutorials will be held which instruct the students how to discuss clinical cases in a problem-oriented and cooperative manner. Small group training sessions and seminars will involve diagnostic tools in neurology, interpersonal communication, e.g. “Breaking Bad News”, simulations based on standardized patients and other elements of the medical professional’s skill set.

The Winter School also features an entertaining social and cultural program. On weekends, students go on skiing trips together, attend a concert or a ballet, view the paintings in the Pinakothek museum, or visit nearby attractions such as Neuschwanstein Castle and Salzburg.
