Members of the Division of Infectious Diseases teach students in infectious diseases and internal medicine in various teaching formats (including bedside teaching) throughout the curriculum and diploma theses that are offered in the Medicine Diploma program of the Medical University of Graz. Doctoral students are supervised as part of the Doctoral Program in Medical Science (Sustainable Health Research). Postgraduate training and professional development programs are offered at internal and external lectures and events.


Research-led teaching

Growing resistance to antimicrobial substances is a global problem leading to adverse outcomes for patients and increases of costs. The goal of our special lecture SSM 10 Wie verwende ich antiinfektive Substanzen richtig (How do I properly use antimicrobial substances?) is to establish a basis for responsible use of antimicrobial substances and specifically addresses intermediate or advanced medical students.  Already existing knowledge is consolidated (e.g., fundamentals of microbiology, pharmacology and antimicrobial therapy), expanded by clinical needs and put into practice (through problem-based learning, discussions of case studies, bedside teaching). The SSM is currently offered once a year in October.


Postgraduate training

The wide range of professional development opportunities at the Medical University of Graz is directed at a variety of occupational groups in the fields of medicine, science and research, nursing and health services. Most of the professional development courses can be completed while the participant is regularly employed and provide him/her with a valuable additional qualification.
