Students take examinations at the conclusion of each of the clinical training semesters.
The examinations will concentrate on the main topics studied during the semester concerned. They will structured to simulate the Federal exam in medicine and will include:
- multiple-choice questions;
- practical examinations involving patient-actors (simulation of an objective structured clinical examination = OSCE).
At the end of the sixth semester, students will also sit their final examinations in form of a full simulation of the Federal exam in medicine.
The Federal exam in medicine takes place upon completion of the 3-year Master in Medicine program, and only once the student has obtained the Master’s degree. It includes two separate exams:
- Multiple choice exam (MC), an interdisciplinary theory exam split in two parts;
- Clinical skills exam (CS), following the principles of an OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination).
