Becoming a physician includes basic education in medicine, socio-psychological subjects and natural sciences. In addition to laying the program's groundwork and foundation, other components include developing a basic ethical and business-related perspective and mindset. Education at the JKU's Faculty of Medicine is geared toward the future practice of medicine and defining medical tasks and skills in order to understand a physician's holistic role in medicine. The faculty's forward-thinking direction in support of medical competence is especially reflected in the regulations pertaining to examinations. As a central component to support medical influence in Linz, a multi-dimensional examination system has been developed which, in addition to knowledge-based examinations, allows case-based, interdisciplinary and skill-oriented formats to take root.
