Gifhorn – Although there will be no graduates in 2020, students in Gifhorn County are not resting. Nearly 30 young adults accepted the invitation from the district and the employment agency to Gifhorn Castle.

All students had one thing in common: The goal is to study medicine after graduation. They learned how to get to one of the desirable places to study, from Josch Hirschfeld, an employee of the Start University Foundation. Hirschfeld acknowledged with myth that long waiting times increase the chances of finding a place to study. There are other important factors, such as appropriate professional training or employment, that will be considered in the application, in addition to the grade point average. In addition, Stefan Schulze, Staff Sergeant of the German Armed Forces, introduced the federal government's path as an alternative.

Councilman Rolf Amelsberg is pleased with the large turnout that followed the call. "We also want to inspire those who are still a little hesitant about medicine. At the same time, our event serves to inform young people fully so that they can already optimally prepare for admission to their dream studies," Amelsberg points out. Andrea Franke, Advisor for Academic Professions at the Gifhorn Employment Bureau, adds: "The allocation of study places has had to be adjusted by a judgment of the Federal Constitutional Court. they offered medicine. The old process had to be limited to six. This event was a great way to learn about such and other legal changes and requirements. "

The county hopes that some of them will join a mentoring project in the district or apply for a scholarship while studying. Both are ideal opportunities to find a physician or physician in Gifhorn County after completing their studies, for example, in the practice of a GP or at a hospital and to make useful contacts. Christine Gehrmann, Gifhorn County Demographic Commissioner, knows of the great importance of medical care as a location factor for the region: "Many people often seek the purchase and care of children before relocation. At the same time, the question of proximity to primary care is always raised."

Anyone in Gifhorn County who is interested in studying medicine can, of course, also contact Insa Busse at the Gifhorn County Health Department at any time after the event. He can be reached at (05371) 82711 or For further questions on the study of medicine or general studies, interested parties can schedule an academic advisory appointment with the Gifhorn Employment Agency (08 00) 45 55 50 0 (free).
