Zusammenfassung Einleitung: Medizinstudierende mit Migrationshintergrund sind im Rahmen ihres Studiums mit zahlreichen spezifischen Problemen konfrontiert. Introduction The number of students from non-German origins has been risen continuously in the last years. Sample description Sample of the written exams in the preclinical studying-term Data of test performances in the written exams at the end of the second, third and fourth semester were provided by the Deanery of Student Affairs at the Medical Faculty Heidelberg for the year Sample of the oral exam within the frame of the first state examination Data of test performances in the oral state examination were provided by the Deanery of Student Affairs at the Medical Faculty Heidelberg for those students that had absolved the state examination in the period to Determination of the cultural background within the samples There existed two pieces of information concerning the origin of the students that written and oral exam performances were compared with each other: their nation statehood and their place of birth.
Conception of the written exams at the end of the semesters The exams at the end of second, third and fourth semester were multiple-choice-tests. Open in a separate window.
Table 1. Sample of the oral exam within the frame of the first state examination The initial sample consisted out of medical students of the University of Heidelberg. Performance differences between German and international students In this section results are presented to the hypotheses outlined above. Examination performances in the written tests at the end of semesters in the preclinical studying-term To calculate the examination performance in written test at the end of second semester Mann-Whitney-U-tests were used.
