Background. Psychosocial crises are part of everyday life of physicians. How physicians can deal with these problems and how well they can handle their own psychosocial burden has both an impact on personal health and on the quality of health care. The experiences made during medical education are an important cornerstone in dealing with psychosocial crises. Methods. An elective course was designed at the Medical University of Graz, which deals with the burden and health chances of future medical doctors. In addition, the participating students are trained in dealing with psychosocial crises in professional as well as in private life. Students receive input about stress theories, theoretical concept of crisis, and the handling of crises from a psychotherapeutic and psychiatric perspective. Furthermore, they learn about relaxation techniques and practice how to deal with crises through role playing, watching movie sequences, and case studies. Discussion. The elective course is positively perceived by the students. The perceived mean challenge in the handling of crises and situations with high emotional burden arises due to the lack of accurate checklists-compared to algorithms in biomedicine. Practical exercises are perceived as very important.
