Furthermore, a perspective on the direct networking of basic scientific principles with clinically relevant problems is to be imparted.

3. Year of study

III Medicine will give its main lecture as part of the lecture series on clinical pathophysiology. Over a period of several weeks, basic scientific and clinical questions are combined and the most important clinical pictures are systematically discussed. Using one of Priv-Doz’s.
