    what type of exam ?

    Advertisements



    I was wandering what type of exams do U have in 4 year degree?

    I mean - oral, multiple choice( usmle style), short answer, essay?

    I am interested in bigger subjects like:

    anatomy ?
    biochemistry?
    physiology?
    pathophisiology?
    pathomorphology?
    histology?
    embryology?
    and later in 3 and 4 years - like internal medicine etc?

    All of those basic level courses have multiple choice exams. Anatomy and histology have practical lab exams in addition to the written theoretical exams.
    in 3rd year internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics and neurology are all NBME subject exams.

    Thats great news! Are those NBME subject exams only for 4-year program or both 4 and 6 year programs? I mean are the evaluation systems the same or different in the 4 and 6 year programs?

    NBMEs are only offered in the 4 year curriculum because most students are from North America and because we have to write the USMLE (vs. 6 year program), these tests are beneficial because they more accurately mirror the types of questions asked on the Steps.

    Thank You for answer Dave,
    It is great that NBME are offered on the 3 and 4 year but I was wandering - do U have any preparation for step 1 which should be taken after year 2 ?

    All of the material (more or less) is covered in years 1 and 2. Everyone prepares for Step 1 differently and there is no included review course in the program. Some students chose to take 3rd party courses with Kaplan or DIT but I think the majority of students just made their own study plans.
