Prof. Dr. med. André Reis

Compulsory teaching

A lecture in the 6th semester (2nd clinical semester) systematically presents the theoretical basis of genetics and the structure and function of the human genome with specific respect to clinical genetics. The contents of the lecture are deepened and practically applied in a laboratory course [HUKU], covering 6 specific topics (modules A-F). The written exam (Prüfung 80901) takes place in the 6th semester and covers the contents of the lecture.

In the winter semester 2018/19 the exam will take place February 2nd 2019, from 5.30 to 6.40 p.m. in the new lecture halls of the Medical Faculty (Ulmenweg 18).

Other teaching

For students in semester 7 and 8 we offer an elective entitled: “Differential diagnosis of genetic disorders”. On the basis of typical clinical problems from the consultation hours, in this course the differential diagnoses of several common genetic disorders are addressed. The participants prepare each case for themselves independently (literature etc.). The usual procedure of genetic counseling including prognosis, prevention and perhaps therapeutical options, possibility and significance of a genetic diagnosis, as well as family risk is discussed.

Time and place: Friday afternoon in the Institute of Human Genetics
Supervisors: Hüffmeier, Zweier
