“We have developed EDU to design a digital catalogue of learning objectives, which consists of relevant learning objectives and can be adapted regularly to the skills and competencies a modern doctor needs in today’s world. This catalogue of learning objectives controls the complete curriculum and a longitudinal assessment system, which takes into account not only grades but also feedback. From early on, students get in touch with the principles of evidence-based medicine which is necessary in these days to be able to deliver high-quality healthcare treatments.”
