Core and Elective Curriculum

Core Curriculum Course Program

Core-oriented as well as translational research projects in the field of oncology, much like the treatment of patients with cancer illnesses, require an interdisciplinary approach. Modern developments have in recent years led to an immense growth in knowledge in the field of oncology.

Part of our assistance in the execution of these courses comes from the existing structures of the "Sozietät Czerny: Multidisciplinary Oncology – Between Patient and Laboratory". Many of our teachers have years of experience from working with the Sozietät Czerny or other elective subjects such as "Commuication and Professional Behavior".

Choice Curriculum and Czerny Sozietät Course Program

With the elective curriculum, which you take for at least two semesters, you can gain credit for a maximum of 2 weekly course hours per semester. Of course, if you are interested, you may attend more courses, which will then be listed in your transcript of records. Many courses can be accredited to the MEDISS program.
Sozietät Czerny members are requested to register by email (wft-io@med.uni-heidelberg.de) for the courses, which are usually held on Tuesday afternoons.

Course certificates

Our exam format calls for the elaboration, design, and presention of a scientific poster on a topic in the field of oncology. At the request of our students, the exams are held at the beginning of the semester.
