Dear Semmelweis Student,

During the coronavirus epidemic, the Traumatology Department is conducting teaching through Semmelweis University’s Moodle E-learning portal. All lectures and seminars, as well as scenarios and traumatology surgical videos have been uploaded. The seminars and lectures have audio files for each slide of the lecturer speaking. Please use this course material independently at your own pace. The E-learning material accounts for 75% of your practices, but you will have to participate in the remaining 25% of practices after the passing of the epidemic. We have posted interactive question and answer sessions through Zoom, which are available for each group for the duration of the teaching block; this is optional, attendance will not be taken. The remainder of the year will be inversed, in the sense that you will be allowed to take the exam first (According to the R / 5 / 2020th (IV.23.) RECTOR’S DIRECTIVE), before completing the substitution of 25% of missed practices.

Exam: The 4th year Traumatology MCQ exam can 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.

6th year students, English language program:

Practices: According to the newest order by the head of the university, practices can be accepted in one of the following manners:

  1. The student participates in volunteer work at the specific department where he/she was assigned to spend his/her practice.
    1. At Semmelweis University’s Traumatology Department (Uzsoki Hospital or Péterfy Hospital Traumatology Institute
    2. At any accredited Traumatology Department abroad
    3. At any Emergency/Surgery Department
    4. At your previously accepted Traumatology department posted on your letter of acceptance.
  2. The student does volunteer work elsewhere than the specified department where he/she was originally assigned, but in a similar field – an additional 1×24 hours or 2×12 hours on duty intensive practice is necessary at the specified department.
  3. The student was not able to participate in volunteer work – 2 weeks (or in case of new curriculum – 1 week) of practice will be necessary at the specified department after passing of the COVID-19 restrictions (presumably between July 1 – October 6, 2020, but if the restrictions are abolished earlier, then at an earlier date, as allowed by the Dean). Please check the Traumatology website for information in the future about applying for these practices, which will be updated after passing of the restrictions of COVID-19.

Please notice, that you cannot count in the same volunteer work as different practices (e.g. The same 2 weeks spent in ER or Surgery cannot be accepted for both Traumatology and Surgery practice. If it is counted in for your surgery practice, then you will still have to come to Traumatology for a separate volunteer work. Only if you have participated previously in volunteer work elsewhere than at a Traumatology department or at an ER will you have the opportunity to do an additional 1×24 hour on-call duty at the Traumatology Department for acceptance of your volunteer work.)

Exam: The Surgery-Traumatology oral exam is conducted through Zoom. Registration for the exam is available through Neptun.
