T he German-Maltese Medical Society (GMMS) was founded in 1999 under the patronage of the German-Maltese Circle. The aim of the institution is to promote the exchange of medical knowledge by running clinical clerkships for medical students, as well as organizing scientific symposia, seminars and workshops. Furthermore, hospitations in Germany and Malta are also organized. In 2013 and 2014 eighteen Maltese medical students took up the offer of the Red Cross Hospital in Kassel, Germany, and successfully completed a clinical clerkship in different hospital departments. The nine clinical clerkships for 2015 have already been allocated. Future offers will be expanded so that Maltese doctors can participate in longer clinical clerkships in Kassel.
