Internship: practical considerations
Your supervisor/internship manager will determine when you should show up at your (medical) department or unit. So it is best to contact us in advance (all contact details can be found in the service-related information leaflet) or on our website.
During the first day of your internship you will be shown around the department/unit and you will get to know the staff and physicians in the (medical) department/unit.

A locker will be assigned to you the week before your internship starts. You will receive an e-mail containing a locker number and a code.
