TUM Medical Training Center

At the Medical Training Centre (MTC), medical students at the Technical University of Munich train essential skills and abilities for their future contact with patients in a realistic learning environment under professional supervision. Realistic models and modern patient simulators are used. All training scenarios are recorded using a modern audio-video system and then debriefed in detail by the trained instructors. The clinical staff at the MRI also make regular use of this opportunity. To ensure the quality of the courses and check their effectiveness, the course modules are regularly accompanied by research projects.
