You may serve your practical year in the facultative subject “Orthopaedics” and the compulsatory subject “Surgery”. For orthopaedics it will take place in one of the corresponding medical fields. For surgery it will be the medical field of trauma surgery. You may choose to split your practical year between both subjects.
During a monthly rotation between the different departments of the clinic you will experience the whole depth of the subject of orthopaedics and trauma surgery.
The working hours on workdays are 07:00 am to 04:00 pm. Fridays until 03:30 pm.
Until the introduction of a uniform compensation by the University Clinic Bonn you will receive a monthly compensation of 350 Euro. Beyond that you may volunteer for on-call duty or emergency services in the interdisciplinary emergency center for further experiences.
As a contact and tutor for your practical year senior physicians Dr. med. Kowalsky and Dr. med. Windemuth are at your disposal.
