The Aachen model course of study in medicine does not participate in the first section of the medical exam (Physikum). However our students participate take the oral examination for the Staatsexamen, the second component of the medical exam, every spring and fall.

The fourth class cohort of the "Modellstudiengang Medizin" (Model degree program of medicine) successfully completed the written portion of the Staatsexamen (M2neu) in the fall of 2012. After being in fifth place in 2010 and third place in 2011, Aachen is now in second place among the nationwide rankings. The good training in Aachen linked with preclinicals and clinicals, the practical year repetoire, and good mentoring are already paying off in the fourth year.
