They spend the first part of the day on the oncology wards, learning the daily routines, accompanying patients from reception through diagnostic procedures to therapy sessions. The afternoons are taken up with courses on the latest diagnostic methods or therapeutic approaches, and discussion of individual case studies in small groups. As well as getting to know the day-to-day routines on the wards, the students are introduced to clinical laboratory work, familiarize themselves with radiology or hyperthermia, try their hand at image-based functional diagnostics, visit the Rehabilitation Clinic in Bad Trissl, and attend the weekly oncological review conducted by the staff specialists at the Medical Center. A German "study buddy" is assigned to each participant from abroad, and helps to pilot his or her partner through the complexities of hospital practice.
