Basic lectures provide an organ-specific theoretical background of organ failure and basic principles of replacement therapy as well as on general aspects of chronic organ failure and organ replacement. Elective courses broaden the scope of knowledge for topics of special interest, impart know-how in clinical research (design of clinical trials, statistics, etc.) and basic research (e.g. methodology); beyond this, elective courses provide the munition for writing scientific articles. The basic lecture is therefore designed to enable students to acquire a fundamental knowledge; a further intention is to provide a framework for the independent, mostly highly-specific scientific thesis subject.
