2015: What pleased you the most, what annoyed you?

Prof. Dr. med. Klaus Cichutek, President of the Paul Ehrlich Institute, Federal Institute for Vaccines and Biomedical Medicines

I was very pleased with the first indications of effectiveness in clinical trials of one of the Ebola candidate vaccines in West Africa. The Paul Ehrlich Institute was able to contribute to this by providing scientific advice at the highest level of the WHO as well as at European, national and global levels.

At the same time, I regret that the benefits of pharmaceuticals are often overlooked in the public debate that many innovative and effective drugs are researched and approved by us, which open up new therapeutic options and are urgently needed.

More digital!

What made me particularly happy? After the 2nd state examination, I learned windsurfing in Turkey. At 16 degrees water temperature I was the only student. But when I finally felt the wind in the sail, the stress of learning was forgotten.

And what particularly annoyed me? It is time for fully digitized hospital IT system! The daily search for files and the deciphering of handwritten consoles is no longer up to date, costs lot of money and is prone to errors.

No more trouble!

Dr. med. Günther Jonitz, President of the Berlin Medical Association

I was pleased that the demand for young doctors continued to grow in 2015. This opens up wide range of options for the young colleagues. I very much hope that they make use of their freedoms and express their wishes clearly.

In 2015, nothing really annoyed me. Because I've decided not to be annoyed anymore! However, I am disappointed that the current Federal Minister of Health has obviously not recognized that we need health system that is less based on control and mistrust, but on trust and responsibility.

Soon specialist!

My greatest pleasure was to hear few weeks ago that I was still in the December 2015 I am admitted to the specialist examination. I worked towards this moment for more than six years during my training as vascular surgeon. I am very happy that the time has come!

At the end of the year, however, I am shocked and stunned that the terrorist attacks will never end. While we try to save lives during the day, in the evening we see in the media that many innocent young people are killed. In my eyes this is unbearable! "
