Summer school for medical students

As a student in the field of law, you have the opportunity to complete the legal internship or the optional internship as part of your legal trainee program in one of our legal or compliance departments. You will support our lawyers in day-to-day business and apply your expertise to exciting projects in practice. How many days a week you work with us can be agreed individually.

After passing their second state examination, pharmaceutics students can choose to complete an internship (six months) as part of their practical year. Your internship usually begins on May 1st or November 1st.

Prospective physicians at Fresenius Helios receive high-quality training during the practical year and thus deepen their professional and personal competencies.

Fresenius Helios offers medical students the possibility of a clinical traineeship, during which they can gain valuable insights into the procedures of a hospital and gain important experience in the area of surgery, the intensive care unit, anesthesia and the emergency room, as well as in the handling of patients.
