All applying international students are advised to become familiar with the specific regulations of their home university / medical school on the acceptance of internships performed abroad prior to application. Universities usually do reserve their right to decide about the acceptance of rotations performed abroad on an individual basis. It is the responsibility of every applicant to ensure that credit will be granted. The internship program cannot be held responsible if credit is denied in certain cases by your home university. Our rotation is accredited by many medical faculties within Germany and in many international faculties already.
