Emergency Medicine

The University Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care has a long tradition in emergency medicine. One of the first German emergency ambulances was put into service in Magdeburg as early as 1960, the first vehicle of its kind in eastern Germany. Since then, the clinic has been actively involved in preclinical emergency medical care for acutely ill or seriously injured emergency patients.

Group of Leading Emergency Physicians

Seven emergency physicians with the qualification of leading emergency physician work at the clinic. Together with the leading emergency physicians from two other hospital departments in Magdeburg, they participate in the permanent on-call service of the leading emergency physician group of the state capital Magdeburg for possible major incidents.

Additional title "Emergency Medicine"

The clinic regularly holds continuing education courses on emergency medicine, at least twice a year, together with the State Medical Association. The courses for the acquisition of the additional title "Emergency Medicine" as well as refresher courses are held by Landesärztekammer Sachsen-Anhalt . The same applies to the courses for qualification as a leading emergency physician. The cooperation with the Fire Protection and Disaster Control School in Heyrothsberge has proven very successful. The excellent training scenarios and models that exist at this internationally renowned training center for fire department managers can be used by us for the practical training of future emergency physicians.

The chair is involved in student training with lectures, seminars and practical courses on emergency treatment. In order to be able to effectively teach and train the practical aspects of emergency therapy, a special teaching facility, the "Emergency Parcours", has been set up. The evaluation of the student examination results always showed excellent results for the Magdeburg graduates. Special in-depth courses in emergency medicine are offered every semester as part of the elective course "Practical Emergency Medicine".
