Bedside clinical teaching (ward rounds) takes place at three Infectious Disease Departments of the Bulovka University Hospital (FNB) and at the Department of Infectious Diseases of the Central Military Hospital (ÚVN).

Each three-week corse usually starts on Monday in the lecture hall of the Bulovka University Hospital (FNB) or in the lecture room at the Training Center of the Military University Hospital.

Organization of the oral exam

 

Dear students,

 

register for the exam via the Student Information System. This can be done practically from the beginning of the course. In this school year, exams for students from groups 1 and 3 take place at the Central Military Hospital (ÚVN) and groups 2 and 4 at the Bulovka University Hospital (FNB).

Exams (at the Bulovka University Hospital) are usually held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, most often in the seminar room on the 7th floor or in one of the seminar rooms on the 6th floor. Some slots are preferentially reserved for students who have finished the rotation in the previous week.

Students coming to take the exam will gather in the seminar room on the 6th or 7th floor at 1:00 p.m. (unless agreed otherwise). There you will randomly pick two separate questions - one from the 31 questions of the general section and the other one from the 60 questions of the special section. During preparation time (15 minutes minimum), prepare your notes. It is no longer allowed to leave the place, nor to look at brought written notes or use electronic aids. In addition to answering a pair of drawn-out questions, the theoretical exam includes demonstrating orientation in the issue according to the examiner's questions and understanding the context of the given problem. The student may also receive an additional question related to the diagnostic approach in a typical clinical situation.

You can bring your index book to the exam.

 

We wish you peace of mind to study and successfully pass the exam in infectious disease medicine.
