Why is the pre-medical course a good way to secure a medical university place?

In 60% of all cases, the selection procedure for medical study centers is achieved by the completion of various medical examinations, such as Ham-Nat and TMS, or through interviews. So that’s more than half. If you want to be optimally prepared for tests of this variety, a preliminary study helps systematically further.

During a pre-study course of medicine at HUMANITAS Medical College, we assist participants in acquiring relevant knowledge for the tests, proving themselves in test simulations and, in addition, training personal selection interviews in practice. The pre-study does not only make you self-assured but also arouses additional motivation. In this way, you create for yourself the very best prerequisites and promising prospects to actually get a study place.

Natural science as a basic knowledge

The basic knowledge in the field of natural science includes the structural and functional cell structure as well as the macromolecule classes of the human organism. In addition, the complex processes of cell division, protein biosynthesis and DNA replication are discussed. Access to university biology is provided by the analysis of the strain of the mother tree and genetic detection methods. In the field of chemistry you expect general chemistry, inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry. These pillars will be taught in lectures and tutorials. In the field of physics, you will learn about electrical engineering, mechanics and optics. Above all, mathematical foundations are also discussed here. These contents are illustrated by practical explanations, illustrative experiments and video animations.

The objectives are always to make complex processes understandable and to be able to apply teaching contents independently.

Knowledge transfer in internships

The anatomical internship offers participants the opportunity to gain first experiences directly at the dissection table. Learn more about the isolated organs, such as the heart and lungs, as well as about nerves and vessels such as arteries and veins, which you can see more closely on the human as well as the animal preparation. The laboratory course, which takes place within the framework of the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology, teaches you how to deal directly with practical laboratory utensils in practice and thus bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application.

The microscopy practice is an exciting introduction to the correct handling with the light microscope. Here, a variety of histological specimens are examined and discussed under the microscope. The subject of emergency medicine provides you with the basic rules, the structures and the relevant emergency diseases. In addition, you will learn how to deal with people in unconscious situations, which is to do with threatening bleeding and how to react in a cardio-vascular arrest. From simple reflex hammers to computer-assisted nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, you will get to know different medical examinations.

Knowledge in the medical section

The medical part of the pre-study is, so to speak, the heart of the curriculum. In this part, all questions concerning the topics of anatomy, histology and physiology will be discussed. For example, take an in-depth view of red blood cells. They discuss exactly where biliary fluid is produced and which cells are responsible for the disease pattern of liver cirrhosis – to name only a small excerpt. In addition, each organ is examined in its macro- and microscopic structure and explained using clinical case studies.

The topic of embryology is also discussed. This is specifically about the development of the fertilized egg and the resulting embryo. This medical area is called a prenatal development area. Here, general embryological foundations are treated as well as the special embryology of various organ systems. In addition to the further section of the medical terminology, you will systematically learn many relevant technical terms in order to be able to articulate rhetorically and specifically, and to communicate with colleagues.

  • Financial Flexibility: In order to make it easier for prospective students to take part in a preeminent medicine, we offer flexible payment conditions in order to take full advantage of the course offer and benefit from a first-class preparation for the medical studies.

  • Simple study approach: The pre-study program in medicine offers excellent opportunities to systematically prepare for the study. It covers a large part of the first semester in the study of human, dental or veterinary medicine. This means that you are clearly in the know-how after your participation.

  • Certificate: As a participant in the pre-study course of medicine, you will receive an official final certificate confirming the successful participation in the HUMANITAS Medical College. This certificate will help you with applications on study places as well as in the medical profession.
  • Language of instruction in German or English: The course offer at the HUMANITAS Medical College is offered in German as well as in English. If you are looking for an international academic career, this is a good way to improve your language skills and set you where you want to go.
