This page contains the different material needed for the module “Critical Thinking in Translational Medicine” at Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin Oct 2016 / Feb 2017. This course is designed for master students from two different preclinical research masters, a group that I love to teach given my previous experiences with students from these type of master programs.
