Ticking, Learning, Looking-up - New Tutorial Programme for Physicians


The TUM offers now AMBOSS, a tutorial programme for medical students during the clinical part of their studies. AMBOSS combines multiple choice tests for the state examination with reference works to a learning system which helps you to prepare for the second part of the medical exam.

Online Access

You can access AMBOSS via the University Library's database plattform DBIS. Please note: Free access is only available for medical students, staff members and lecturers of the TUM's Medicial Faculty. Additionally, a personal registration is required - either from a computer within the TUM network (on-campus access via proxy) or from elsewhere with your TUM ID (off-campus access via eAccess). As soon as the registration is approved, you will have access to AMBOSS from any computer, tablet or smartphone.
