What matters most to me in patient work is the comprehensive understanding and solving of the patient's problem. Only then will we be able to establish a good management plan and, in problematic situations, also secure an extensive multiprofessional rehabilitation package. At the university hospital one has a great opportunity to apply the latest knowledge in research, care and rehabilitation to patient work.
In the early stages of my medical career, I found that a large number of people are suffering from musculoskeletal disorders. There is a wide range of tasks in diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation. However, the teaching of physical medicine and rehabilitation in basic studies was rather limited, so I applied for this specialty because of my enthusiasm to learn new things and the desire to develop this field through both clinical work and research.
