New system of education, so called outcome based, has been implemented at PUM.
Learning outcomes are statements of what a student is expected to know, understand and/or be able to demonstrate after completion of a process of learning.
The outcomes are based on the following essential elements of a competent and reflective practitioner:
1. what does the student know (demonstrating evidence of knowledge, assessing comprehension, assessing application, assessing analysis and synthesis)
2. what the student is able to do (practical skills )
3. the student as a professional (competences - a dynamic combination of attributes, abilities and attitudes)
These three primary elements give rise to seven domains, which student will have to master during 4 academic years:
A _ morphological sciences
B _ scientific basis of medicine
C _ preclinical sciences
D _ behavioral sciences with elements of professionalism
E _ clinical sciences in general medicine
F _ clinical sciences in dentistry
