In medicine, new knowledge is acquired daily; therefore, it is paramount that students not only obtain facts during their studies, but also strategies to deal with the influx of knowledge, and most importantly, the tools to integrate novel findings into practice. In addition, students who strive to become extraordinary doctors will need to develop special interpersonal communication skills. This will enable them to make well-founded diagnoses and together with their patients, find the best course of treatment. The mission of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Münster is to convey all this to its students. Additionally, opportunities are extended that allow for the acquisition of research competence as part of the curriculum. Through regular evaluations, informal exchanges and ideas contests, students can incorporate their experiences into the further development of their medical studies.
