Didactics of Medicine


Teacher Professionalization

Teachers at the RWTH Aachen Faculty of Medicine receive strong support with professionalizing teaching. The goal is to expand the bank of methods and help young and experienced teachers become familiar with new teaching methods. One to two-day medical-didactic workshops are regularly offered on topics such as course planning, problem-oriented learning, small group lessons, clinical teaching, use of simulated patients, presentation technology, and plenary didactics. Training offers are held by experienced medical-didactic speakers.

The RWTH Aachen Faculty of Medicine was also active in the preparation and foundation of the Landesakademie für die Medizinische Ausbildung (e.V. i. Gr.) NRW (LAMA), an initiative of the deans of study at the faculties of medicine in the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. The academy's goal is to improve teaching with joint projects.
