To improve global healthcare, medical practitioners have to engage in medical policy-making processes. Global improvements in healthcare are possible only if medical practitioners contribute to policy making. Within our themed series of interviews “Doctor – it is a mission” we have interviewed RSU medical student Alexander Wyckoff-Mähler who shared with us his experience at RSU, his plans for the future and revealed his willingness to someday be part of global healthcare policy-making processes.
The possibility to render effective psychological support to students through e-intervention or web-based intervention programmes has rapidly developed and institutions of higher education all around the globe develop e-intervention tools aimed at rendering support throughout the study process. For example, a university may offer its students e-intervention solutions, e.g. as multimedia or an interactive tool, allowing use of specific information adjusted to the needs of a particular student at the required venue and time to help improve sleep quality, eating habits etc.
RSU has launched a pilot project with Lukaskrankenhaus, the academic Lukas Hospital in the city of Neuss (Germany) opening up for RSU medical students the opportunity to acquire individual study courses at one of Germany’s leading clinics.
