Regarding the incorrect answers at the orientation pool and the susquent question if the mistake-ratio in the whole pool or of the evaluating programme is as high, I was informed that we they are working to correct the orientation pool, but however give no warranty that the whole pool is mistake- free.
I will inform the Dean about this problem today, so far we need be prepared to keep a copy of our answers and to verify our mark via rezitest inorder to be able to contest against incorrectly corrected exam papers.

Welcome to our 2nd and final semester! As Yashraj Deenoo has been doing a great job over the past few months, I will stay as Vice-chief from now on. There are many important things to be discussed over the weeks to come and this constellation seems to be the most promising one so far.

The german lecturers are holding their well prepared lectures again this week, starting daily from 09:00 o'clock and regular classes have been put to their disposition. Be advised that presence might be taken there instead of the classes.

+++ 30.09.09+++
The timetable should be completely ready by the end of the week.
The exact tuition fee has been officially confirmed with 3168 Euro. However, this fee is for the 9 months, not counting the summer practice. If that one months will be added on top of this, you end up at 3.520 Euros.
For those who payed already 3.600 USD, will have to get their difference calculated by the University's "Contabilitate" Office, which you can find in the Rector's Building, 2nd floor.

+++ 28.09.09.+++
The timetable is online on the Faculty's website. As usual I expectsome changes until stable timetable will be in place. So long I will publish here the subjects that have been confirmed by the respective teachers.
+++ 25.09.09.+++
Tuition fees for the coming academic year have been increased to 3.520,00 Euro. The Ministry of Education decided this on 28.08.09 and it was implemented by 3rd of september for this year.
The Faculty and the University can not change this and I recommend to complain via the embassies and so avoid a further increase in the year to come.
+++ 15.09.09.+++
The academic year will start on 28th of September. Timetables are supposed to be ready before that time.
It was also confirmed, that the groups by alphabetic order will only be introduced for 1st year and not for our year.
Pleaase take notice,that the tuition fee was increased by 10% by the side of the University. Hence the fees for the year are 3.960USD or about 2.800 Euro.

+++ 01.09.09+++
Hopefully you all had a splendid summer break so far& that you'll be starting refreshed into our/your already final year in Oradea!
As usual for this time of the year, there are already some news that I consider important enough to post them here.
The reexamination for Internal Medicine has been sheduled for the 8th and 9th of September. As we are still waiting for a decision of the Faculty's Council on the reevaluation of the previous paper (those affected received the mails), I recommend to tke the exam if possible. Otherwise we remain dependent on the Council's decisions.

The academic year will start on the 1st of october, timetables and other information should be available then.

By decision of the Senate, all our Groups will be rearranged in alphabetical order by the family names. Group sizes however shall remain the same.
Deadline for registration this year is the 15th of October. A special registration form shall be distributed to controll this. Coming after the 15th might be enough to expell you, so please arrange to arrive on time.

The Senate send a request to switch also 5th and 6th years on to the credit system during this academic year.
I expect soon to find out how this is going to be realized. Which subject will be evaluated with how many credits etc.

In the meanwhile, the mode of retaking exams has already been switched to that of the credit system. Which looks like this: Payment according to credits, retaking the classes& practicals and then taking the exam.

The known problem that there are sometimes two obligatory classes at the same time has been temporarily solved. In this case you must write an application in which you describe the situation. (You can be sure that your information regarding this will be double checked)
For those affected in this semester without an application or retaken classes, they can join the exams but should still inform the respective Prof. or Dr. about it beforehand.
These informations came directly from a discussion that I had today with the Dean, the vice-Deans and the Scientific Secretary Dr. Burta. A written procedure for the secretary is not available yet, but Monica is informed.

+++ 20.01.09+++
The last date for the english examination is thursday, 22.01.09 at 12:00 o'clock. The newest list will be available at Monica's office (11:00- 15:00).
Please make sure that your absences are all in order. Each department must inform about the regulations they follow.
The guideline says that you can have 3 absences in practicals but must recuperate them until you have no absences left. Some departments work according to this rule, i.ex. Pediatrics and Internal Medicine.
Be aware that you can only recuperate after having paid (17,00 Ron/hour) at the University's tax office.

Group 603: the pictures for the Ophthalmology practical exam with Dr. Lazar are out. Part I and Part II

+++ 14.01.09+++
All exam dates are fixed now.
Please take notice that the practical exam in Pediatrics will be taken by Dr. Cladovan according to the given schedule. In order to enter the exam, be sure not to have more then 3 absences at the practicals and to recuperate those as well.
Remaining classes for this week are Ophthalmology, Internal Medicine lecture& practicals

+++ 12.01.09+++
As expected the senate voted to apply the 14 weeks schedule at the Faculty of Medicine.
This means that all years will start their exam session on the 19th of January.
The solution regarding the english test has been approved by the Rector today.
So everyone who is on the list for the english exam, please get your curricula of your english course from highschool and get it evaluated by the teaching staff of the Facultate de Litere on friday, 16th of January at 09:00 o'clock.
For more details, please check the forum!

Dental Care class has been cancelled for tomorrow!

+++ 09.01.09+++
Important notice:
The practical exam for Infantile Surgery has been established for the Groups at their usual practical times during the next week.
So for group 605, 606, 607, 608 it will be on Monday, 12th January at 11:00 o'clock in Spital de Copil.
Likewise for group 601, 602, 603, 604 on Thursday, 15th January at 11:00 o'clock in Spital de Copil.
Specific topics for the exam were not given, but you will have to be able to evaluate radiographs and answer basic questions in surgery.

More informatiosn on the individual exams are available here.

Please also check the calendar

In relation with the english exam a possible solution has been developed.
There is no way arround completeing your files with that certificate of english language.
So far you need to show any certificate on english language that is recognized (TOEFL etc.).
However aimso proposed to the responsible persons of the Faculty of Litere and to the Rector the following solution:
If you had english in high-school as a regular subject, you can pass your curriculum of that time to the Faculty of litere and let them evaluate the level of your english according to this curriculum. In the majority of cases they will approove it then and you will not have to take the english exam.

The Rector already spoke out his ok, I will have to get the paper signed on monday to make it official& binding.

If you are not able to get anything to show your english is adequate, I'm afraid there is no other way then to take the exam.
The fee has been verifyed for 170 Ron and it is not negociable. (Decision of Senate 21.4.2008, already reduced from 360USD)
Please be aware that the files have to be complete (means english certifiacte must be in it!) by the 23rd of January. So please get your papers sorted out asap!

+++ 05.01.09+++
I wish you all a happy new year& hope you had a good start into a successful& healthy year 2009!
Regarding the upcoming exam session, a little bit of luck might come in handy as well.

When our session will exactly start is still not decided yet. On monday, 12th of January, the senate will discuss this topic& I will let you know as soon as possible afterwards.
The current options are 19.01- 14.02. or 02.02.- 28.02. The second option is of course the easier one, but the legaly binding schedule forsees the 19th of january as first day of exams.
Until the decision is made, I recommend to start revising for Neurology as it will be the first subject in this session.

+++ 08.12.08+++
The test about Respiratory Diseases in Pediatrics has been shifted to after the holidays for all groups.
As this week wednesday the Balul Bobocilor takes place, we will be free from classes on thursday.

The 12 members of the council will meet each week wednesdays to discuss further going steps. Our council will has to send 3 representatives to attend each meeting of the Faculty's Council, which makes decisions that affect us all.
Those three are Roland Meixensberger (1st year), Mabo Chailunga Fundanga (4th year)and me, Jan Vollmer (3rd year).

Details (in english language) about the credit system will be hopefully out soon. Basic idea is to evaluate the subjects by their importance in credits and put up a minimum level of 30 credits to pass a year.


The practicals for medical semiology are held within the groups. The times are written below our timetable.
Please keep your practicals according to the final groups. It is now obligatory that we keep a presence book for each group, where every presence/ absence is noted. The person that leads the book is marked with red color in the group list.

The list containing our subjects of 3rd year is online.

Finally the rules& regulations are out for the english speaking members of our faculty. As it comes a bit too late to read it to the whole class at a good occasion, I scanned the pages for you to a file. Download, read & comment it. As it‘s favoured not to get into trouble, you should know the rules.

If you have extraordinary problems you can always write an application to the Dean to solve them.



To announce changes, updates etc I‘ll be sending „newsletters“ , so you know if there‘s something new on the page.

To update my addressbook send me an email to
