Akademisches Lehrkrankenhaus

In March 2011, an agreement was signed with Heidelberg University's Mannheim Medical Faculty. Under the terms of this agreement, the Hôpital Kirchberg is accredited as an "Akademisches Lehrkrankenhaus" (teaching hospital) of this well-known faculty. It is involved in this capacity in the training of the faculty's medical students and, from 2013 onwards, students from other German faculties.

The students therefore have an opportunity to spend part of their final year of study ("Praktisches Jahr") at the Hôpital Kirchberg. This practical year includes training in internal medicine (with the possibility to rotate their time to cover various departments) and in surgery (also with the possibility to pursue various sub-specialities). Students benefit from a modern hospital, state-of-the-art equipment and personalised supervision. As part of this, a training supervisor supports the student as a tutor throughout his time at the hospital. Seminars to further develop both practical and theoretical knowledge are proposed to the students twice a week.

WELCOME TO LUXEMBOURG FOR YOUR END-OF-STUDY INTERNSHIP!

The Kirchberg campus which includes the Hôpital Kirchberg and Clinique Bohler offers high-quality healthcare with a capacity of 405 beds. With the exception of Cardiology and Cardiac surgery which are part of a department located in Luxembourg-Ville, all of the other acute medicine departments are situated on the Kirchberg site.

More than 1200 staff work on this site including 120 private practice doctors (as is common with private practice doctors in Luxembourg).

Several of them run classes in the French and German universities and in all 11 doctors are "hospital internship supervisors" at the University of Luxembourg.

 

CONTINUING TRAINING

In addition to its clinical activities, the Kirchberg Campus attaches great importance to training and continuing training. Consequently, the Hôpital Kirchberg regularly welcomes human medicine students for various internships (nursing internships, day school, "Famulaturen"). The feedback from these initiatives has been very positive and they enable us to establish direct contact between the student and the doctor, the training supervisor. The hospital has an 80-seat auditorium, several meeting rooms and a Medical Training Center enabling it to teach 40 surgeons each session. The interconnection with the operating theatres allows for the live broadcasting of operations.

The Hôpital Kirchberg's accreditation as a teaching hospital ("Akademisches Lehrkrankenhaus") of the University of Heidelberg's Mannheim Medical Faculty enables it to welcome students for training as part of their practical year.
