Choice of subjects

The University of Cologne divides the final year of clinical training into three periods (PJ-Tertiale). Students from universities in other countries do not have to adhere to these periods.
If you will be doing your final year of clinical training (PJ) or a short-term clinical traineeship (Famulatur) here in Cologne you are free to choose the time period as well as the departments (depending on capacities in the clinics).

The stay in a department must be at least 2 weeks (Famulatur) or 4 weeks (PJ) long!
