In medical didactics, paradigms have shifted towards integrated, competence-based curricula; at the same time the total medical knowledge doubles every year. These developments prompt for a dynamic, lifelong educational concept, which demands both pre- and postgraduate commitment from university teachers.

In the Medical Sciences bachelor programme, the Division of Anatomy and Developmental Biology coordinates for the first-year Module BM02-Locomotion: From Form to Function and teaches morphology in modules BM03, BM04 und BM06.

In year 3 the Division of Anatomy and Developmental Biology coordinates the morphology-track of modules BM13-BM18. All modules integrate basic and clinical morphological sciences, i.e. anatomy, histology, embryology, diagnostic imaging, and pathology. Theoretical classes of year 3 are integrated with weekly dissection classes, which form an all-the-year teaching line element.

The interprofessional hands-on workshop " A Cerebral Connection" has been established by Sophie Förster-Streffleur and is given together with Theresa Heidinger, BSc MSc: medical and psychology students together approach neuroanatomy and neurocognition.

To students, who are not proficient with Latin (and classical Greek), blended-learning classes in Medical Terminology are offered by the Division of Anatomy.

Scientific knowledge-transfer is ensured by supervising bachelor-thesis and master-thesis projects.
