welcome to the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) Heidelberg, a joint venture of the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the Heidelberg University Hospital (UKHD). The Department of Medical Oncology (Medical Clinic VI) is part of the Center for Internal Medicine at the UKHD and a core area of the NCT Heidelberg. Medical Director of the Department of Medical Oncology at the UKHD is Prof. Dr. Dirk Jäger.
Within the Heidelberg Curriculum Medicinale (HeiCuMed), we participate in the training of medical students in Block I (internal medicine) as well as in the Sozietät Czerny and in compulsory tracks such as the track "Interdisciplinary Oncology".
In our outpatient and in-patient areas of patient care we offer students the opportunity to complete both their clinical traineeship ("Famulatur") as well as their practical year ("Praktisches Jahr").
