MMRS "Good Scientific Practice"

The MMRS online course „Good Scientific Practice" (MMRS-Ringvorlesung "Gute wissenschaftliche Praxis") is offered every semester.

The asynchronous online course consists of screencasts (video recordings) on various topics relating to "good scientific practice" and related quiz questions. The processing time for each topic is approximately 2 hours. All content is provided in english.

The MMRS lecture series is open to all doctoral candidates of the LMU medical faculty.

  • For doctoral candidates wanting to obtain a structured Dr. med., structured Dr. med. dent. or structured Dr. rer. biol. hum., the PhD in Medical Research in EPH or the individual PhD in Medical Research the participation is mandatory.
  • Doctoral candidates of the PhD in Medical Research receive 0.5 ECTS for their successful participation.

The MMRS lecture series is part of the interdisciplinary curriculum. The curriculum can be done at any time - even before you are registered with the MMRS (in this case you should download the logbook and have courses/workshops documented and signed there).

Successful participation

The MMRS lecture series is considered passed if 80% of the course modules have been completed.

You can extend your participation over several semesters. In this case the number of modules/lectures in the semester of the first visit of a MMRS lecture is the basis for calculation. For example: 8 modules are required, when you started in the summer semester 2020 (with a total of 10 modules), ...

Attended modules must be documented accordingly (when participating online via a download of the confirmation of participation - or - when attending a presence event, a confirmation of participation signed by the lecturer). When you have a "Logbuch" note 2 hours and enclose a printout of your confirmation/s of participation.
