Welcome to Mirror


Becoming a neurologist in Germany is hard and the required documentation is cumbersome. The DocTrain App makes documentation of specialist training easy and provides a quick overview of progress and open issues. Using the DocTrain app for mobile phones or the DocTrain web-application physicians can capture their progress and share it with their mentor. DocTrain supports the individual reflection about training progress and strategies. Furthermore, it is a valuable tool for reflective discussions in the appraisal interview.



 The test version is not public because we are currently in discussion with a commercial partner. In case you are interested contact Lars Müller, FZI Forschungszentrum Informatik

Quotes from testers:

“That would help a lot”
“I like it, when do we get it?”


How does it work?

After a treatment, the physician can scan the barcode of the current patient case and select the appropriate training task from a structured list. The physician may add personal notes for later reflection or store the data directly. The user interface is very intuitive and reduces the time effort to a few seconds.

The mobile application can be used offline and synchronization over the network is only necessary, if data should be accessible in the web application or shared with the mentor. The current progress can be reviewed on the mobile device or, after synching, on the web application.

DocTrain implements the official documentation as demanded in the specialist training guideline (WBO Weiterbildungsordnung).
