German Medical Students' Association: Professional/Research/Public Health Exchange
For clinical trainees or research interns, the arrangement includes 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.
Students have to finance a public health exchange themselves and pay fees to the project in addition to the bvmd application fee.
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.
You can only apply for the clinical traineeship exchange after completing the 4th semester or 6th trimester. For research and public health exchanges, students in medical-related study programmes may also apply from the 1st semester. In the case of the clinical traineeship exchange, a clinical traineeship must have already been completed by the time you start your traineeship abroad.
