Bench to Bedside and Back (BBB)

Discover more about translational research. Practice clinical reasoning and learn how to improve patient safety. Connect with universities around the world.

  • BBB is devoted to translational research and includes not only expert seminars with LMU and the international partners, but also training sessions on Patient Safety and Clinical Reasoning in the form of Clinical Case Discussions. The latter is also considered from the point of view of Global Health aspects and by comparing health systems.
    In addition, there is a longitudinal module where "Clinician Scientist" competences are acquired and promoted. These range from Abstract Writing to preparing for scientific conferences and the students’ later work as doctors (the doctor as a teacher in the clinical environment) and Academic Feedback.
  • The international network universities include Lund University in Sweden, Washington University in the US and Jimma University in Ethiopia.
