Brief Summary:
Emergency ultrasound examinations are increasingly important diagnostic tools in emergency and critical care medicine. This study wants to analyze different types of education for undergraduate students. Any method of medical training will be proved theoretical and in clinical practice.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Medical Education in Emergency Ultrasound Other: Education

Detailed Description:

This prospective educational study wants to analyze different methods of education for undergraduate medical students.

Method A: Theoretical training will be scheduled for 2 hours with lectures in basics of emergency ultrasound. After the theoretical education the students will obtain a bedside-teaching on intensive care unit for 4 hours.

Method B: Theoretical training will be scheduled for 3 hours and included lectures in echocardiography, lung ultrasound and abdominal ultrasound. After the theoretical education the students will obtain a bedside-teaching on intensive care unit for 3 hours.

Method C: Theoretical training will be scheduled for 3 hours and included lectures in echocardiography, lung ultrasound and abdominal ultrasound. After the theoretical education the students will obtain a hands-on-training in healthy volunteers for 3 hours. The acquired knowledge and practical skills will be analyzed by a multiple-choice exam (5 MC-questions, 5 video sequences) and a practical exam (five tasks).

Any method of training will be proved at the end theoretical and in clinical practice.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Improvement of the knowledge score with different training in emergency ultrasound [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    With different kinds of short trainings in ultrasound, students can quickly and accurately determine the main emergency ultrasound diagnosis (free fluid, pulmonary consolidation, pulmonary edema, pneumothorax, left and right ventricular failure, pericardial tamponade). The parameter of knowledge score will be used (ratio of multiple choice exam and practical exam).
