AG Chemistry in Medical Education

Who we are – What we do

The work group “Chemistry in Medical Education”, founded in 2010, aims to further develop and modernize the education in chemistry and the natural sciences in medical majors (human medicine and dentistry but also in veterinary medicine, molecular medicine, among others). In human medicine, this education takes place within the scope of the subject “Chemistry for Physicians”.

Moreover, the work group aims to externally promote the interests of these fields and of their representatives. To name here are mainly the collaboration in the creation of education standards and the representation in university-wide and extra-university boards. The objective is to sustainably anchor chemistry as a natural scientific fundamental subject in modern medical studies that is commensurate to the opportunities and challenges of rapidly growing molecular know-how.

Moreover, this work group represents a platform for the exchange of experiences on every level.

Questions, wishes and suggestions are always welcome and can be directly communicated to the Executive Board.

The founding Chair, Prof. Hoffmann, wrote an editorial about this topic in “Nachrichten aus der Chemie “ (News from Chemistry), Edition 12/2010 (only in German).
