In order to protect patients and students during the Covid 19 pandemic, the third section of the medical examination (M3) in Halle (Saale) was conducted in a modified form in accordance with the "Verordnung zur Abweichung von der Approbationsordnung für Ärzte bei einer epidemischen Lage von nationaler Tragweite” [1]. The one-day examination took place at the Dorothea Erxleben Learning Center (DELH) of the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg on standardized simulation subjects. In contrast to previous years, all examiners were examined individually in internal medicine, surgery and their elective subject of the practical year. In the evaluations carried out, the standardized cases were assessed as consistent and fair by examiners and exam takers. Approximately 90% of the examiners could imagine to test a state examination with simulated patients again. After successful pilot testing, a study will be conducted in the coming exam to determine whether the substitution of real patients with simulated patients in the M3 exam can contribute to better standardization and objectivity while maintaining the same high level of acceptance in the exam. Whether the high acceptance will remain constant can only be checked in the course of the study.
