Ring out the old, ring in the new…. The end of a great IsieMHH year 2016!


The athmosphere at the last „Stammtisch“- gathering this year was very familiar. After one year the group has grown together tightly.

Also we are very excited to welcome the new international students into the IsiEMHH-family, who are starting their studies in October 2016.   We wish our students the best of luck for their next Anatomy exam and most importantly a great time in the next years at the MHH!

SprinT – Language and intercultural training 2012/2013

One week before the regular studies start IsiEmed started its kick-off week for international and German students who start their first year in 2012/2013. 14 People from 8 different countries took part. One participant said in the feedback round at the end: "First I was afraid starting to study medicine but now I only have a Little bit of fear left in me." 

The international students are first welcomed by the mentoring students, who help them during their first weeks in Germany. Mentoring students are students from higher semesters who assist international students regarding housing issues, financial issues or just show them the city.  

 The intercultural week started with a intercultural training during which the students had to explain each other a drawing which the other Person could not see.

Der Partner sollte nun anhand der Erklärung das Bild nachzeichnen. Es war sehr schwierig und die Teilnehmer haben doch bemerkt, wie präzise man beschreiben muss, wenn zwei das gleiche sehen sollen. Etwas das auch bei der Anamnese später wichtig sein wird. In den folgenden Tagen haben sich die einzelnen Dozenten der Fächer und der Propädeutikumswochen des ersten Jahres vorgestellt und nachmittags wurden die Inhalte des Vormittags vertieft und in Gruppenarbeit Vokabeln gegenseitig erklärt.

Den Erstsemestern hat besonders gut ein Besuch im Skillslab gefallen. Hier durften sie sich gegenseitig Blut abnehmen und schon einmal EKG schreiben üben. „Die erste Hürde ist genommen und ich bin jetzt wirklich Medizinstudentin “, sagte eine Teilnehmerin, nachdem sie zum ersten Mal in ihrem Leben jemanden Blut abnehmen durfte. Nächstes Jahr soll dieser Besuch mit einem neuen Jahrgang auf jeden Fall wiederholt werden, da dies ein echter Motivationsschub ist.


Am Dienstag der regulären Erstiwoche fand wieder der jährliche Studentenwerksempfang für die neuen Studienanfänger an der MHH statt. Mit einem Stand vertreten war dieses Jahr auch IsiEmed.

Die studentischen Tutoren hatten sich entschieden von den 1500€ Preisgeld, das sie beim Erhalt des Studentenwerkpreises 2012 erhalten hatten, unter anderem Nachtisch für alle Erstsemester bereit zu stellen. Die Nachtischaktion sollte der verstärkten Aufmerksamkeit des Projektes dienen.
IsiEmed war den gesamten Abend mit einem Stand vertreten und bei Fruchttiramisu wurden auch diverse Fragen zum Programm gestellt und beantwortet. „Wir erhoffen uns dadurch vermehrte Aufmerksamkeit auch bei den deutschen Studierenden für das Programm zu wecken, sodass Integration an der Medizinischen Hochschule Hannover zur Selbstverständlichkeit wird.“, so Henrike Schulze, eine der IsiEmed  Tutoren.

Im IsiEmed Programm geht es nun mit IsiEhelp weiter, einem fachlichen, auf den Modellstudiengang Medizin Hannibal bezogenen Tutorium, das nun wöchentlich stattfindet.

Studentenwerkspreis 2012



Über den Studentenwerkspreis 2012 für soziales Engagement im Hochschulbereich durften sich die sieben Tutorinnen und Tutoren des Programms IsiEmed freuen. 

Den Scheck über 1.500 Euro erhielten die Medizinstudierenden der MHH bei der feierlichen Verleihung des Preises am 14. Juni 2012 von Festredner Professor Dr. Erich Barke, dem Präsidenten der Leibniz Universität Hannover.
Die Tutoren, die zum Teil selbst ausländische Wurzeln haben, betreuen Erstsemester mit fremdsprachigem Hintergrund gezielt im ersten Jahr des Modellstudiengangs Medizin, HannibaL. In Fachtutorien vermitteln sie den Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmern des Programms IsiEmed Inhalte aus dem Medizinstudium und stehen ihnen bei allen Fragen rund um den Studienalltag zur Seite. Mit dem Preisgeld möchten die Tutoren ein interkulturelles Fest auf dem MHH-Campus organisieren.
