Medical Sciences Spring and Summer Schools are specially focused on clinical-scientific research, aiming to improve patient care eventually. The main goal of these Schools is to recruit young potentials, i.e. enthusiastic and talented students who are motivated to combine clinical patient care with performing scientific research. So a Medical Sciences Spring or Summer School is targeting clinical-scientific research and strives for scientific co-operation and pre- and post-graduate education at an international level, trying to attract students already interested in research, e.g. students involved in the Junior Scienitific Masterclass. The intentions are to stimulate students’ interest in research from an early stage on, to allow PhD students the opportunity to report on their research subjects and to encourage contact between research project leaders.
