    Z Rheumatol. 2020 Nov; 79(9):902-905.Pfannkuch L, Schneider U, … Krusche M

We describe the case of a 62-year-old male patient with auricular chondritis as the first symptom of granulomatosis with polyangiitis. Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) associated vasculitis…

  • [Specialist training quo vadis?] [Review]
    Z Rheumatol. 2019 Oct; 78(8):692-697.Krusche M, Sewerin P, … Rheumadocs und Arbeitskreis Junge Rheumatologie (AGJR)
  • CONCLUSIONS: The nationwide number of newly acquired specialist qualifications (between 2015 and 2017) showed a decreasing trend. It is to be feared that the numbers will continue to stagnate, which increases the importance to invest further in medical education. The online survey also showed that the current medical training in Germany has deficits. Here, the new MWBO could create better guidelines for a structured training, which should be guided by the principle of "Teach to Target".
