Exam requirements for the General Medicine and the Dentistry Program

 

General Medicine

 

The following criteria must be complied with in order to achieve validation of semesterial duties in Pathology:

The Department will not tolerate more than two absences from the practical sessions (histopathology and/or gross pathology combined). A missed practical session (be that in histopathology or autopsy) can be made up for only within the same week of the semester. The substitute attendance must be officially certified by a member of Staff.

Examination:

Both semesters must be completed by an examination. The exams are comprised of a written test, and an oral part. The oral segment includes evaluation of preparedness in performing laboratory-type tasks (I. e., macroscopic and microscopic recognition of fundamental pathological phenomena) plus presentation of factual knowledge about the body of principles of pathology (as instructed during lectures and discussed in textbooks. This part serves the evaluation of “doctrinal preparedness”).

Written examination: every student is required to sit for 10 “minimum” questions. The latter are listed on the Department's website. At the end of the 2nd semester 4 questions are randomly selected from the list of the 1st term’s minimum questions and 6 questions will be from the 2nd semester’s minimum questions. In order to have the test accepted a 70% success rate is required.

The evaluation of laboratory skills (“practical exam”) takes place in the autopsy room.

An acceptable result both in the written test and the autopsy room exam is required to acquire acceptance for the oral part.

At the end of the 1st semester the student is required to take the “End of Semester Examination” (ESE) to prove that she/he has acquired acceptable knowledge of the material covered in lectures and all practical sessions during the semester.

The oral exam consists of two items:  histopathological and doctrinal recitations. Passing histopathology requires recognition of the tissue and the pathological alterations within it using a traditional light microscope (description + differential diagnoses). During the doctrinal (“theoretical”) exam 3 topics (the titles are randomly chosen by the candidate) are to be elaborated and orally presented. The knowledge of the students is assessed on a five-grade evaluation scale.

At the end of the 2nd semester the student is required to the take the Final Exam (FE).

The FE also consists of:  histopathology and theoretical parts. During the theoretical exam 3 titles are to be worked out. One topic is from “general pathology” (material of the 1st semester) and two from “systemic or organ pathology” (material of the 2nd semester). Two slides are given to each candidate. These need to be described and diagnosed (1 slide from each semester). The histopathology part may be accepted despite failing the theoretical part but it requires convincing presentation of fundamental knowledge of the slides and this is expressed by a minimum “pass” (2) mark. This equals a waiver that allows sitting for a B or C chance exam without the need to repeat the histopathology item.

Dentistry Program

 

Validation of duties accomplished in either Semester in Pathology is dependent upon fulfillment of the following requirements:

The Department will not tolerate more than two absences from practical sessions (histopathology and/or gross pathology combined). A missed practical session (be that in histopathology or autopsy) can be made up for only within the same week of the semester. The substitute attendance must be officially certified by a member of Staff.

 

Examination:

Written and practical exams are mandatory to take at the end of both semesters.

Written part: every student is required to sit for 10 “minimum” questions. The latter are listed on the Department's website. At the end of the 2nd semester 4 questions are randomly selected from the list of the 1st and 2nd terms’ minimum questions and 6 questions will be from the Dentistry curriculum. In order to have the test accepted a 70% success rate is required.

The practical exam takes place in the autopsy room.

 

The practical exam takes place in the autopsy room.

An acceptable result both in the written test and the practical exam is required for obtaining the permission which allows sitting for the oral part.

At the end of the 1st semester every student is required to take the End of Semester Examination (ESE) to prove that she/he has acquired acceptable knowledge of the material covered in lectures and practical sessions during the semester.

The ESE consists of:  histopathology and theoretical parts. Passing histopathology requires recognition of the tissue and the pathological alterations within it using a traditional light microscope (description + differential diagnoses). During the theoretical exam 3 topics (the titles are randomly chosen by the candidate) are to be elaborated followed by an oral presentation. The knowledge of students is assessed on a five-grade evaluation scale.

 

At the end of the 2nd semester the student is required to the takeFinal Exam (FE).

The FE consists of:  histopathology and theoretical parts. During the theoretical exam 3 topics (questions) are to be worked out (one from the material of the 1st semester and two from the material of the 2nd semester). Two slides are given to each candidate. These need to be described and diagnosed (1 slide from each semester, including “dentistry slides”). The histopathology part may be accepted despite failing the theoretical part but it requires convincing presentation of fundamental knowledge of the slides and this is expressed by a minimum “pass” (2) mark. This equals a waiver that allows sitting for a B or C chance exam without the need to repeat the histopathology item.
