Abstract

The discipline rheumatology is underrepresented in German universities with only seven professorial chairs with freedom of instruction. The teaching positions with and without freedom of instruction are associated with a different quantity of teaching. The effect of the teaching position on the quality of teaching and on the training of medical students is unclear. In order to approach the answer to this question we have evaluated 2,610,217 examination questions from 32,166 students over a time period of 4 years according to location and freedom of instruction, which are documented on the teaching platform AMBOSS. In total, in the evaluated examination performance in the discipline of rheumatology, the majority of students just about achieved the grade of "sufficient". Locations with freedom of instruction had significantly better grades; however, these differences had no relevance with respect to the complete state examination. The examination pressure on German medical students to learn for the examination discipline of rheumatology can be estimated as rather low.
