Before students take the written test, they must send the professor the answers to the questions related to each lesson (via mail). The questions will focus on the main issues of each lesson.
The objective of the examination is to check the students' level of the formative objectives.
The examination consists of a first part, a written test, which includes several open and closed questions. During the lessons, some samples of written tests will be commented and explained. The students, after having passed the written test, are admitted to the oral examination. The oral test includes the presentation and discussion of a real study on medical ethics.
