Traduction en anglais : The Faculty of Medicine at Heinrich-Heine-University of Duesseldorf.
When the University of Duesseldorf was founded in 1966, the former Medical Academy in Duesseldorf became the university's Faculty of Medicine, which currently is training some 3.500 students in Medicine or Dentistry.
Apart from its wide spectrum of research activities, the Faculty pays close attention to new concepts in medical training.
The Dean of Student Affairs first elected in 1995 is responsible for the organisation of studies, the promotion of innovation in teaching, and the establishment of appropriate procedures for evaluating faculty teaching performance.
He receives support from a number of innerfaculty commissions in which students play a constructive role.
This report describes both planned and proven teaching reforms.
These include a greater emphasis on medically relevant topics in preclinical instruction, as well as an intensified practical orientation in clinical studies, with more emphasis on case-oriented rather than specialty-oriented teaching.
A particularly innovative course that has gained attention outside of Duesseldorf is, Anatomy by means of Imaging Techniques . This pilot project, which combines preclinical and clinical subject matter, offers a perspective on possible modes of teaching that motivate learning and are well received by the students.
