How is the training to become a medical student

Recognized vocational training

"Recognized vocational training" is included in two of the three selection quotas when applying to study human medicine and can (depending on the university) earn additional points for the application. The training is included in the additional aptitude quota (ZEQ) and the university selection process (AdH). On the other hand, vocational training does not play a role in the highest school-leaving qualification.
