SOREL – maintain and redesign
SOREL is an online learning program funded by all five medical faculties in Switzerland and the Swiss Society of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery.
Numerous online learning programs like MorphoMed, RadioSurf or CliniSurf, which were developed at the Department for Education and Media AUM at the IML in conjunction with specialist representatives from the Faculty of Medicine, need to be updated.

AMEE 2018: Focus on Medical Education
From the 25th – 29th August 2018, the IML took part in the conference of the Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) in Basel. Among the 5000 participants from 150 nations, the institute was represented both with scientific contributions and as an exhibitor.
Remembering a forgotten condition
The link between nutrition and health is undisputed – today, as in the past. Historical film material from the IML collection illustrates this with the example of endemic goiter (“cretinism”) through vivid images. The fact that the theme continues to be topical is demonstrated by an enquiry from French TV.
The IML once again receives the SAMS award for best practice in interprofessional teaching.
Targeted creation of exam questions – it’s better together
In March 2017, the new exam questions for the Federal licensing MC examination in human medicine were created, for the first time, in a two-day workshop. The quantitative output was very good. The authors’ satisfaction and the qualitative output were considerably better than in previous years, when the questions were devised individually or in smaller workshops.
Usability without users
How can one optimise interfaces in a time- and safety-critical context without knowledge about the users of the system?
