OSCE6: THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR THE EFFORT

The practical station exam OSCE8 for medical students should actually have been completed in June 2020, but this was postponed until February 2nd due to the corona pandemic. Although there was sufficient time to plan the exam, for many it was still a hectic rush last week.

There are several reasons for this. The ROSA analysis was delayed, there were new challenges in the infection situation, and there were personnel challenges partly due to many sick leaves at the study section K1 / K2 in the most critical phase, but also due to the need for extra reserve personnel if someone urgently had to be quarantined. Nevertheless, OSKE8 was carried out, and my impression is that it happened in a very good way, professionally, administratively, and in terms of infection control. It was just extremely impressive! And the students were very happy that the exam could be completed!

Many of you in a very short time lined up as extra markers, examiners, examiners and administrative people, and many worked day – and in fact night – to facilitate the exam. There is certainly a lot we can learn from this round and which we should probably address in the next round this spring when OSKE8 and OSKE12 will be held again, but I want to praise all of you who lined up, both electively and ad hoc, so that this became possible. THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH!!

Have a great weekend. Hope you have a surplus in your mental account for a ski trip or two J

HSE

The HSE handbook has now been updated with instructions for importing and working with infectious material. Look here.

A committee for biosafety was established in December 2020. The committee shall be an advisory and approving body at UoB for the import and use of biological risk factors, including genetically modified organisms. More information about this will come later.

Have a great HSE weekend 😊 regards to Siv Lise
