The degree course in human medicine is divided into three parts:
- preclinical medical school lasting 2 years, at the end of which candidates sit Part One of the Medical Licence Examination
- clinical medical school lasting three years, which is completed on passing Part Two of the Medical Licence Examination
- and finally, the so-called Practical Year, in which three rotations of practical training each lasting 16 weeks are completed. After 48 weeks of continuous practical training, candidates must sit Part Three of the Medical Licence Examination in order to qualify as a physician/doctor
During a period of study in Würzburg lasting one to a maximum of two semesters, exchange students may select courses from those on offer during clinical medical school (years 3 - 5, semesters 5 - 10).
In order to spend an exchange semester or year at the JMU in Würzburg, you will first have to have been nominated and selected by your home university for the exchange programme with Würzburg. Please contact the ERASMUS coordinator at your home university or institution and submit your application for an exchange place. Your home university will inform us of your nomination, should you be selected.
Staff of the International Office in Würzburg will then send you specific information on admission, accommodation, and language courses in preparation of your visit. The application deadline is 15 January for visits commencing in the summer semester and 15 June for visits commencing in the winter semester. Information on admissions for exchange study may be found on the website of the JMU International Office.
The Faculty of Medicine will send you subject-specific information, which also relates to the selection of courses.
You must apply before the deadline for a room in a student residence hall or dormitory. The same deadlines apply as to admission. Please refer to the respective webpages provided by the International Office and the Studentenwerk, the student accommodation and facilities administration service.
