Our conference brings together a plurality of people involved in medical education. We aim to create a space to discuss various best practice examples such as longitudinal integrated clerkships, student run clinics etc. that show that students can contribute to an increased patient orientation in health care in different countries. Moreover, we believe that ideas by students in training can have a significant potential to generate future models. We want to create a space to present and exchange ideas and commonly think of ways to implement those into a more demand-oriented education.


Therefore, we are happy to welcome a wide variety of projects and initiatives:

  • The Globalisation & Health Initiative (GandHI) from RWTH Aachen as well as GandHi from the German Medical Students’ Association (bvmd)
  • Wissenshunger (bvmd)
  • interTUT, located at Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Alice Salomon Hochschule Berlin and Evangelische Hochschule Berlin
  • Health for Future
  • Gesundes Klima by Kritische Mediziner*innen Deutschland


Furthermore, initiatives founded during the Corona Pandemic will be presented:

  • CoronAid from University Witten/Herdecke
  • Offenes Ohr from University Witten/Herdecke
  • CoronaTaxi from University of Heidelberg
  • Reflections on Medical Students Contributions to a Rural US Healthcare System during COVIS-19 from Penn State College of Medicine
