Dear students please follow schedule updates, zoom links and learning matarials on Moodle!
The meeting point before the out-, and in-patient practicals is the hall on the mezzanine where you can find lockers. You will be given locker keys and white coats there.
White coats, face masks and regular hand disinfecting are obligatory during the practicals!
On the last day of the course a written test for merit can be taken. The 3 BEST RESULTS grants for three students a mark of 5 in the practical part of the exam, meaning that the practical does not need to be taken. All other students must take the practical part of the exam on the exam day.
The exam consists of both practical and theoretical parts. The registration for the exam is done in Neptun. The meeting point before the exam is the mezzanine hall at 8 a.m. Students who have to take the practical part of the exam, should get white coats because the practical part of the exam is taken before the theoretical part. The list of the topics in the three main subject areas for the theoretical part of the exam are available on our website. Students have to pull three questions randomly from each of three main subject areas.
Concerning every block, a negative PCR test result within 2 months is required before starting a practical training of medical students with patient contact.
The practical training with patient contact starts in the second week of each block. During the first week of the blocks, online Zoom sessions are performed. (Zoom links are available in the Moodle.) During the first week, we kindly ask you to make an appointment with one of the COVID testing units of the University. Please bring along the results to the practical training.
IN THE CASE OF POSITIVE COVID PCR TEST RESULTS
According to the newest regulations of the University and the Department, every student must stay in quarantine for at least 10 days in the case of a positive PCR test result!
After 10 days, if there are no clinical signs of any infection, a negative PCR test result is required before attending the practical training with patient contact. The regulations above are also obligatory for high-risk contacts of PCR-positive students!
High-risk contacts are students, patients, or colleagues who were within 2 meters of an infected person for more than 10 minutes without wearing face masks on both sides (e.g., drinking coffee, smoking, having breakfast or lunch, attending a pub together). Please be aware that wearing a face mask is strictly obligatory during the practical training, inside the building, and in crowded outdoor places as well.
BEHAVIOUR OUTSIDE THE DEPARTMENT
The epidemic is most prevalent among younger people. The corona virus spreads rapidly and easily in communities, dormitories, and bars. Therefore, the same guidance and advice on the use of masks to protect against and limit the spread of the virus are highly recommended during the social life as well.
CONSEQUENCES OF BEING UNABLE TO ATTEND THE PRACTICAL TRAINING
Every student has to attend the practical training part of the education. Previously, we had to organize supplementary practical training for 10 students because they had had lunch together with a PCR-positive student. If such incidents happen, we might not be able to reorganize the semester’s education for the entire class.
Furthermore, according to the law of large numbers, there will be certainly some students who are going to be severely ill due to the virus. In some cases, they may need to be hospitalized or even require intensive care treatment. In such cases, the complete recovery and becoming PCR-negative could be very prolonged. Besides the health damage, these students may also have to retake the whole 4th year if they cannot attend the practical training. Please take every safety precaution to minimize the risks! Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
