UKA, AIXTRA Research Center, RWTH University Aachen, Germany

The Aixtra as the interdisciplinary training center for education and research in medical education at the medical faculty of the RWTH Aachen, mainly provides courses on clinical and social-communicative skills for under- and postgraduate learners from the fields of human medicine, dental medicine, occupational therapy, logopedics, paramedics, etc. Aspects of patient safety are of essential importance and therefore salient in every single course. Concrete topics addressed are handover checklists, discharge letters, interdisciplinary communication, hygiene and Crew Resource Management. Our interdisciplinary team consists of medical doctors, psychologists, a communication scientist as well as a nurse and acting coach for our simulated patients. It constantly conducts different research projects on medical education, e.g. clinical skill acquisition with different teaching methods.
