General Information on Medical Studies

Medicine (Clinical Work)

Only clinical work can be done at TUM. 

The first year of your medical studies (pre-clinical work) is done at LMU. It is not possible to complete the early part of your medical studies at TUM. Interested candidates from Germany and the EU/EEA must apply via the Stiftung für Hochschulzulassung (university admissions foundation). 

International applicants apply directly at LMU. All applicants who have not yet completed the federal medical exam should contact LMU for information.

Please note that Medicine is taught completely in German. 

Student Exchange

Students who are enrolled in Medical Studies at another German university can transfer to TUM. However, you have to find an exchange partner in the same semester.

Practical Year (PY)

The last year of your medical studies is the practical year (PY). During this final stage your training is centered on working directly with patients.

MediCard

The MediCard is used to identify students of the medical faculty at the Klinikum Rechts der Isar.
