Medical Examination: Part 1

After the fourth semester, the first section of the medical examination (formerly: »Physikum«) takes place. It consists of an oral and a written examination. The written part is conducted nationwide on two consecutive days and includes 600 multiple-choice questions from all preclinical subjects. In Hamburg, the responsible body is the State Examination Office for Health Professions of the Hamburg Authority for Health and Consumer Protection. The oral exams take place in the subjects of anatomy, biochemistry and physiology. The results of the first part of the medical examination will be offset against the later exam grade.

Features of the first part of the study/preclinical study section

Interprofessionality

Interprofessionality

It is not only an elementary component of our study of human medicine, but also a guiding principle of our university. For this reason, we provide our students with »labs«, i.e. simulation rooms in which they can practice cross-disciplinary teamwork in a realistic manner. An integral part of our training is also interdisciplinary teaching as well as interdisciplinary and interdisciplinary projects.

Practical Orientation

Practical Orientation

From the first semester we combine theoretical and practical knowledge. For practical training, several »Skills Labs« and »Labs« are available on our campus, including practical training in anatomy, biochemistry and biophysics. In these simulation rooms, medical students are confronted with situations of their future working day. The »Vocational Field Exploration« module offers you the chance to get to know different medical fields of activity directly on site in clinics or medical practices.

Specialization

Specialization

In the elective area, students have the opportunity to set an individual focus. The MSH offers modules on the subjects of medical management, medical skills, medical education, human resource management and social skills.

Scientific Character

Scientific Character

Our students should learn scientific thinking and working at an early stage. Corresponding modules are therefore an integral part of the first stage of study. In the second part of the study, the acquired competencies are deepened.
