Exam content

The candidate prepares six powerpoint presentations.  The following topics need to be covered.

Pre-clinical and clinical aspects of 

• Gastro-intestinal tract and its major diseases

• Kidneys and urinary tract and its major diseases

• Heart & Circulation and its major diseases

• Respiratory tract and its major diseases

• Endocrinology and its major diseases

• Nervous System and its major diseases

The pre-clinical aspects include relevant details from the anatomy, cell biology and physiology.  
The clinical aspects draw on internal medicine, pathology, surgery and pharmacology.

What is looked for is an overview of the structure and function of organ systems, followed by 
a description of the major diseases that occur in that particular body part.  The presentations 
include methods to diagnose and treat the diseases that were chosen by you, and in some 
selected cases, also include  some epidemiology (prevalence, morbidity and so on and so forth).  
The powerpoint presentation should reach an academic standard and consist of illustrations 
(medical illustrations, tables, diagrams, figures) supported by a limited number of key-words.

Sources include the usual text books, the internet or both. 

A successful presentation has a minimum of 20 slides per topic.

Examination procedure is as follows:  You send me by e-mail  6 presentations you feel 
comfortable with (j.h.ravesloot@amc.uva.nl).  I will review your work and advice you on 
improvements.  After we have agreed on the final versions you will be invited to come to the AMC 
and present the materials to me.  In the 1 hour oral exam you get the opportunity to show what 
you have learned in the process of designing the six presentations.
There is no need to memorize details (medical terminology, anatomical names, facts, figures and 
what have you).  If they are important you have written them down on your slides.  It is important 
however, that you can convince me that you have mastered some sort of an understanding as to 
what keeps a doctor busy in the aforementioned medical fields.

6 ppt and come over telling me about it.
-GI tract,
-Nervous Sys, 
-Hormones, 
-Urinary tract, 
-Heart and Circ., 
-Lungs 
Basics plus major diseases. Roughly, Anatomy Physiology and Internal medicine stuff.
