Dear Semmelweis Student,
You will find the normal university year’s informaions if you scroll down this page.
Dear Semmelweis Student,
According to the No. R/7/2020. (V.22.) RECTOR’S ORDER, the Traumatology Department will conduct the make-up of practices for students in the 4th and 5th year. During the coronavirus epidemic, the Traumatology Department conducted teaching through Semmelweis University’s Moodle E-learning portal, which accounted for 75% of practices. The make-up of the remaining 25% of practices need to be substituted with a 6-hour practice. For English (and German) language students, this will be conducted at Uzsoki Hospital. We are accepting a total of 4/8 students per day. Students need to come to the conference room of the Orthopedic-Traumatology Department (Building D, ground floor) at 7:30 a.m. (Find our tutors: Dr. Gál Tamás, Dr. Pap Károly, Dr. Pánics Gergely). Students can only access the hospital through the Uzsoki Street entrance. Students can sign up for the practice through Moodle. The university requires a negative COVID-19 test (we accept tests for up to 7 days), and the following epidemiological measures: maintaining mandatory protective distance and the wearing of a mask by the student. Please bring the negative COVID test with you. At the hospital’s entrance, only students who have signed up through Moodle will be allowed to enter the hospital, and their names will be listed and given to the porter. Even students who have already taken the Traumatology exam need to make up this practice (inversed exam period – According to the R / 5 / 2020th (IV.23.) RECTOR’S DIRECTIVE). This pertains to Blocks 7 and 8 for 4th year students and Blocks 3, 4, 5, 6 for 5th year students. Failure to make-up the 6-hour practice will result in the disapproval of the subject, even if the student has already successfully take the exam. 6 hour traumatology practice make-up’s deadline: 02/08/2020. We will update the groups monthly till the end of July.
Please keep in mind that the test result is neccessary to all of those who are going to have an exam with patient contact even if they have not left Hungary or have returned more than 2 weeks ago.
Students, who have not left Hungary since the beginning of the emergency situation, do not need to present a negative PCR test result ONLY in order to attend the exams, but for practices or make-up practices you do still need a negative PCR exam. Students who have participated in an internship in other healthcare institutions, have done voluntary work, etc. in the past 14 days also need a negative PCR exam.
Many appointments are available for PCR testing organized by the University, so please go and bring the result. This is a hospital where you have to spend your make-up with lot of old patients, we have to be careful with them. Thank you for your understanding.
Students who are abroad can spend this 6-hour practice abroad at an accredited Traumatology Department/Ward/Center, Emergency Department, or General Surgery Department.
For students who have not yet taken the exam, the Traumatology MCQ exam can still be taken through Semmelweis University’s E-learning Moodle portal from your home (https://itc.semmelweis.hu/moodle/). Only a certain amount of exam dates per day will be posted on the Neptun system in order to avoid the crashing of the Moodle system. Students are requested to first register for the exam on Neptun in order to take the exam on Moodle. We can only accept those exams, which the student has registered for, and if anyone were to take the exam without registration on Neptun, their score will not be taken into account and they will have to retake the exam after registration on Neptun. There is a maximum of 2 retakes (total of 3 exam attempts) during the course of the semester. If a student were to not pass the exam during these 3 attempts, the course must be retaken.
