Information for 6th year students



Lectures will not be given for sixth year students but the attendance of the lectures given for the fifth year students is recommended.



The aim of the practical course in the sixth year is to extend the student’s knowledge in obstetrics and gynecology. In our department every student will have a tutor, who is responsible for the education of his/her student. The duration of the practice is five weeks. During this time the student will be able to work as a medical doctor under the supervision of his/her tutor. It is strongly advised to be on duty with the tutor. Night duties are obligatory once a week. All students must become acquainted with the work of different divisions. There will be a weekly rotation system (see Rotation Itinerary below!). The students will be assigned to assist in operations. Sixth year students should look for their names among the assistants in the operating teams (to be on time in the operating theater). It is advisable to take part in the morning sessions in the library for those students who understand Hungarian to get an impression of the life and work of a large University Department.

Signing up to the practical course should be done using the NEPTUN system. Every student has to have an attendance sheet, on which the night-duties and the activities in the delivery room, wards and in the operating theaters are certified by the surveying lecturer. The six week’s practice will be certified in the index, too.
There is no possibility for individual starting of the rotation! All students who signed up in the NEPTUN system to a certain five week period in the 1st Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology have to be present on the first day of the practice at 8:00 at the Information on the ground floor of the Department (contact person: Dr. NAGY).



Final exam must be taken in the last week or in the following week of every rotation period (generally Mondays and Wednesdays are preferred exam days). Use NEPTUN system to sign up to the final exam of your rotation period. No individual requests can be taken into account! Questions from obstetrics and gynecology will be asked by an examining board.
The requirements of the final examination can be summarized according to the questions. Special emphasis (essential requirements) is laid, however, on some issues of everyday praxis:
