Pd Dr. Dipl. Phys. Stephan M. Fischer
“Why should I learn physics – I want to become a doctor? Because physics is tested in the first state medical exam and because physics knowledge is a prerequisite for understanding physiology.”
Prof. Stephan M. Fischer studied physics and philosophy at the Universities of Innsbruck, Constance, Berlin and Paris. He received his doctorate from the TU Berlin and the University of Cambridge, UK. In addition, he completed a degree in neurobiology, evolutionary biology and molecular genetics at the Humboldt University in Berlin. In 2008 he graduated as a professor with a thesis on the basics of physics, biology and history at the TU Berlin. Since his studies in Berlin he has worked as a tutor in physics internships for physicians (human, dental and veterinary medicine as well as for pharmacists). Since 1998 he has held a lectureship at the TU Berlin and is responsible for the laboratory internships, with about 100 students and 10 tutors.
