Any medical student enrolled at a German institution of higher education is eligible for a clinical traineeship exchange, a research internship or a public health exchange in order to gain hands-on experience in a foreign country. To this end, the German Medical Students Association (bvmd) arranges each year almost 400 internships abroad. They include the placement of the candidates as well as the organisation of on-site accommodation. The bvmd also provides board and gives students the opportunity to get in contact with their peers in the host country. The clinical traineeship exchange will take place in teaching hospitals, whereas the research internships are arranged for in different working groups or facilities with varying key research areas. The public health exchange will be set up with health organisations and (non-)government institutions. Upon prior agreement, students in medicine-related subjects may apply for participation in selected research- and public health projects.
