Hannover Medical School

The Hannover Medical School (MHH) has been a UCAN partner since 2017. The aim of the cooperation was and is the technically stable and safe implementation of an adjustable, electronic Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE).

In the model study course HannibaL, the final examinations in the module “Diagnostic Methods” in the form of an OSCE are held annually at the end of the 2nd year of study. The exams focus on medical conversation and practical medical skills and abilities. Within one week, about 290 students pass an OSCE course consisting of nine examination stations with standardised patients. The examiners evaluate the students’ performance with the help of examination tablets and by using tOSCE. The individual examination matrices for each station are managed in the Item-Management-System (IMS) and are continuously developed further.

In the future, the detailed evaluation of the individual examination stations using EXAMINATOR is planned in order to improve the quality of the examinations in a targeted manner.
