    Hello all,

    I just got accepted for a one month placement in germany. The placement can be in a number of cities that have a medical program. I was wondering if anyone could guide me on some cities in Germany i should look to go to (besides the obvious munich and berlin) and ones i should stay away from. The list of participating cities is exhaustive and kind of daunting and i was leaning to the following cities: Berlin, Munich, Tübingen, Marburg or Göttingen. Thoughts?

    The full city list is as follows:
    Aachen
    Berlin
    Bochum
    Bonn
    Cologne
    Dresden
    Duesseldorf
    Erlangen
    Essen
    Frankfurt
    Freiburg
    Giessen
    Goettingen
    Greifswald
    Halle
    Hamburg
    Hannover
    Heidelberg
    Homburg
    Jena
    Kiel
    Leipzig
    Luebeck
    Magdeburg
    Mainz
    Mannheim
    Marburg
    Muenster
    Munich LMU
    Munich TU
    Regensburg
    Rostock
    Tuebingen
    Ulm
    Witten
    Wuerzburg

    Thanks!

    what are you going to do during the placement? clinical experience? university/lectures/courses? some specialty?

    besides - you cited all universities with medical programs in your list. nothing more or less. there are far more hospitals assigned to universities..

    what are you planning to do? see town, meet people, sightseeing? do you want to be in a typical student-based university town or better in a metropol?

    If you´re looking for a nice and interesting city, you should consider Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Cologne and maybe Dresden and Leipzig.

    I am studying in Düsseldorf - I wouldn´t recommend going there. Only for a day trip parting from Cologne to have a couple of beers in the "Altstadt" maybe.
    I f you like student towns, Heidelberg is beautiful and full of medical students. Besides it´s faculty is very good. Münster is a nice student town too. At those places maybe it´ll be easier to get to know to people than in the big cities.

    I wouldn´t recommend at all Halle, Essen, Giessen, Homburg, Witten, Hannover and Frankfurt. In my view those places are pretty boring - at least from a touristic aspect.

    Well - thats only my subjective impression, so please nobody flame me for this. ;)
