Medicine

... looks into questions such as ...

  • How is the human body organised and how does it work?
  • How do I interact with patients, how do I ask them questions and examine them?
  • How do I identify deviations from health and make diagnoses?
  • How to I treat diseases?
  • How do we ensure scientific progress in the field of medicine?
  • Being able to analyse and study the human body up to and including the tiniest cells is a fabulous experience. Naturally, you will have to do a lot of cramming.

  • Don't let yourself be swayed by people telling you medicine is a difficult discipline. Difficult are those disciplines you're not remotely interested in.
