Medical Examination: Part 2

After the tenth semester, the second part of the medical exam will take place. These are written examinations that are conducted nationwide on three consecutive days centrally and each include five hours. Also this part of the medical examination takes place before the »Landesprüfungsamt für Heilberufe« of the city of Hamburg.

With the passing of the second part of the medical examination, the students qualify for the third part of the study/practical year, which focuses on the handling of patients.

The characteristics of the second stage of study/clinical study section

Organ-oriented teaching

Organ-oriented teaching

The modules of the category »Medical Expertise« are organ centered, that means assigned to individual organs. Students are familiarized in seminars and internships with organ-related examination techniques, specific diagnostics and anamnesis. As a result, prospective physicians improve their problem-solving skills.

Innovative Learning Forms

Innovative Learning Forms

Using methods such as problem-oriented, case-based learning (POL), students in small groups solve given, practice-relevant cases. The aim of this form of learning is to effectively involve other students in their answers to medical questions with their respective prior knowledge and to develop joint solutions.

Communication and Interaction Training

Communication and Interaction Training

Successful communication with patients can be learned. For this we offer special communication and interaction trainings, which can be tested in bedside teaching in particular.


Skills Labs

Skills Labs

At the Schwerin site and on the campus of the MSH, »Skills Labs« are set up to practice practical skills such as neurological examinations, sonographies or blood samples and to simulate realistic cases.

Section modules

Section modules

To be able to work extensively as a doctor, not only medical knowledge is needed. Medical action also touches on ethical, social and legal issues. The corresponding competencies are taught in cross-sectional modules.

Interdisciplinary Specialization Modules

Interdisciplinary Specialization Modules

To deepen their knowledge, students can take a variety of elective courses, such as neonatology, naturopathy, homeopathy, radiology, endocrinology, tropical medicine, voice and speech disorders, sports medicine and rehabilitative medicine.

There are also opportunities for further qualification outside the study program. You can choose from the certificate courses »Trainer for Interprofessional Cooperation«, »Medical Management« and »Clinical Research«. Further elective modules can be selected from the overall range of MSH.

Medicine offers many opportunities for research. For this reason we familiarize our students with different scientific structures, theories and methods. In doing so, we put them in the position to put theoretical knowledge into practice and to realize their own research project.
