At the Faculty of Medicine’s Student Training Center, students can train practical medical activities on realistic models. The goal of this “skills lab” is to give future doctors the opportunity to improve their practical abilities outside of the often hectic clinical routines starting in the first clinical semester of their studies. Students are provided with anatomically realistic models, simulators, and devices in eight rooms on particular themes: anesthesia/emergency medicine, circulation, abdomen, gynecology/urology, ENT/eyes, heart/lungs, neurology/surgery/orthopedics, and a consultation and sickroom whose beds are equipped with simulation mannequins. Alumni Freiburg e.V. provides funding for medical devices to equip the training center.
