Teaching in the curriculum human medicine

We have compiled the concept and content of our teaching in the Oldenburg medical program on a teaching poster, which you can download here.

Year 2

  • Introduction / Basics of Epidemiology and Biometry
  • Lecture
  • Exercises (at your choice in SPSS or R)
  • Data analysis project

Year 2/3  Elective Research Internship

Due to staffing constraints, we cannot offer electives at this time. However, students have the option of taking appropriate online courses from third party providers. For example, the following third party offerings have been suggested to date:

  1. Basics of epidemiological methods
  2. Statististical analysis with R / regression/survival analysis
  3. Statistics in clinical research

Independent online participation is accompanied by learning logs and a final colloquium. Prior arrangement with us is necessary. Registration was previously possible via the following link.

If you would like to attend external courses and receive credit for them, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can check whether they fit into the curriculum.

If there is great interest, independent courses, such as regression methods, survival time analyses, systematic reviews, programming with R, a field trip to the RKI can be planned in the medium run / when the staff situation improves. Please contact us in groups of at least 5 students if you want a specific offer.

Year 4

  • Journal clubs: intensive seminars/workshops with selected publications of the topics frequency, efficacy, prognosis, etiology, diagnostics, meta-analysis and guideline.

Year 5 (in preparation)

Student Peer Review – We each edit a section of student research projects based on real examples from the data analysis projects (abstract, introduction, methods (survey, analysis), presentation of results (text, tables; graphs), and discussion (summary, limitations, conclusions)): What went well, where is room for improvement, and why? The format provides an opportunity to review and eliminate common misconceptions among students, to collect good practice examples, and at the same time to recapitulate frequently needed methodological principles in the context of specific projects. Successful graduates will be given the opportunity to serve as tutors/student assistants in current course offerings if desired.

EbM Quickies – In 45 minutes each, abstracts or other short forms or components of current scientific papers are discussed in terms of study question, form, study quality, and interpretation of results. Topics and sample studies are chosen by students. Students thus become acquainted with a broader range of different research than would be possible by discussing full reports. They improve their ability to quickly review and evaluate research and to concisely brief relevant study characteristics. At the same time, this format is particularly helpful in preparing for exams and post-exams in epidemiology and biometrics. 

Please contact us if you are interested in either of these courses. They still need to be adjusted to acceptable formats and registered.

Note Longitudinal Research Pathway (LFC): Although the LFC is currently credited via the Q1 Schein (EuB-MI), it is the responsibility of the relevant AG or Dean's Office. We have no influence on modalities, supervision and quality assurance in the LFC. This explicitly also applies to supervision & guidance of epidemiological and biometrical aspects of the research work, which the dean's office has organized elsewhere.

Therefore, please contact the Dean's Office or the Dean directly for any queries regarding the LFC.
