Untitled Medical Curiculum Reform in SEE • Hans-Joachim Seitz 1 • Gesine Richter 1 • Celia Friedrich 1 • Gerry Fischer 1 Beitrag The efforts of the University of Hamburg -supported by DAAD, DAAD Stability Pact, Hochschulrektorenkonferenz and EU- aim at improving medical education on all steps of medical doctor's development. Short-range aim is to establish a SEEwide level, long-range aim is to approach to an EU-wide level of medical education and medical care standard. The curriculum reform process in SEE is focused on the following topics • Catalogue of Knowledge & Skills, • Collecting data on the current state of curriculum reform in SEE an comparison with EU-Standard, • Collecting ideas of reform especially in horizontal integration (e.g. physiology - cardiology), vertical integration (e.g. chem- istry - biochemistry - diabetes), • ECTS, • Evaluation, Questionnaries, • Exchange of knowledge about level of exams and start of com- mon exams, • Start of regional students and teachers exchange programs. With respect to medicine the region is extremely poor, equipment outdated, teaching facilities antiquated and student/teacher rela- tionship still as in the 1950's. So a lot has to be done, hopefully the Bologna-Process will help.
