Testimonial: Maximilian Mächler (Medical University)

Portrait 2_1

Maxi­mi­li­an Mäch­ler is stu­dy­ing Medi­ci­ne at the Medi­cal Uni­ver­si­ty Graz.

Why are you studying Medicine?

I am stu­dy­ing Medi­ci­ne becau­se I enjoy the inte­res­ting and deman­ding work wit­hin an inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry team, the con­stant con­tact with humans and the gre­at selec­tion of care­er oppor­tu­nities. In addi­ti­on, and I was able to expe­ri­ence this alre­ady by mys­elf during internships, the honest thank of ano­t­her human being is the big­gest and most beau­ti­ful suc­cess.

How did you learn about this field of study? 

Through the occupa­ti­on of my par­ents I have con­sis­tent con­tact with the medi­cal fiel­ds sin­ce my child­hood. Through this, I was able to get insights into the good as well as the bad moments wit­hin this pro­fes­si­on.

What do you espe­cially like about your studies? 

The diver­si­ty. You get insights into every field of the cli­ni­cal and pre­cli­ni­cal medi­ci­ne and you can choo­se a spe­cia­li­za­ti­on, which fits your inte­rest best.

What makes your uni­ver­sity unique?

Becau­se my uni­ver­si­ty is fol­lo­wing a spe­cial cur­ri­cu­lum you are in con­tact with the same col­leagues for a lon­ger peri­od of time. Through this, I was able to make many good acquain­tan­ces and meet a few very good fri­ends. In addi­ti­on, a spe­cial form of col­leagueship deve­lops. Peop­le help and sup­port each other and I am sure that this will con­ti­nue after finis­hing our stu­dies.

Who should study Medicine?

Ever­yo­ne, who does not only see the occupa­ti­on as doc­tor as a pro­fes­si­on. Ever­yo­ne, who is wil­ling to work bey­ond the com­pul­so­ry becau­se it is his/her con­vic­tion. Ever­yo­ne, who is able to take oneself back to help others.

Have you alre­ady taken classes/courses at other Sty­rian uni­ver­si­ties or par­ti­ci­pa­ted in col­la­bo­ra­tive projects?

I did some sports clas­ses, lan­guage cour­ses and some other cour­ses at other uni­ver­si­ties toge­ther with fri­ends, who stu­dy other fiel­ds of stu­dy. In addi­ti­on, toge­ther with col­leagues I imple­men­ted the idea of a stu­dent con­gress (ISC Med Uni Graz), which intends to con­nect with other uni­ver­si­ties.

Why are so many young people drawn to Sty­ria for their stu­dies? What is so spe­cial about this uni­ver­sity location?

The mix­tu­re bet­ween city and natu­re, bet­ween work and leisu­re, is a gre­at plus which Graz has to offer.
