Dresden, Germany - Child and Adolescent Health Speciality Block


The University of Sydney’s Medical Faculty partnership with Carl Gustav Carus Faculty of Medicine, University of Technology Dresden is part of the DAAD in Germany and provides an opportunity for up to two students to complete the Speciality Block in Child and Adolescent Health in Dresden.

Students will need to demonstrate fluency in the German language as the curriculum is taught in German and clinical contact with patients and staff will need to be in German. The substitute overseas block takes place in May to July or October to December requiring nominated students to be in Streams 1 and 2 only.

For this reason, Stage 2 students should consider this well in advance of stream allocations and apply when applications are called. Nominated students will need to be approved by the Chair of Child and Adolescent Health and may be required to have a German language-based interview. If students wish to apply for a Dean's Scholarship they may do so at the same time.

Students will be responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements and expenses although the Dresden Medical School may be able to assist in locating accommodation.

For further information, visit the Dresden Medical School website. As students return from their placements in 2011, we will add to the Impressions section of this site. Interested students are advised to check this section for updates.
