The PTM Consortium

Within a cooperation there is a posibility to participate for every German speaking Medical School to attent at the Progess Test.

Development of the Consortium

The Progress Test Medizin (PTM) was first introduced in Berlin in 1999. Since 2000 the PTM became a consortium with its primary partner, the University of Witten/Herdecke. 

Since then the consortium grew to 15 medical faculties in 2011. Partnering medical faculties are:

All of the above mentioned partners of this consortium have the opportunity to shape and develop the content of the PTM by contributing test items.

Any medical faculty in Germany, Austria or Switzerland that wishes to use the PTM as a feedback method  for students and professors or to evaluate its medical education and is interested in becoming a partner in this consortium is more than welcome to contact us.

The PTM can be used in many different ways: In the professional development of medical specialists, dentists, care professionals, midwives and/or physiotherapists. It can also be used in any training or educational program where factual knowledge is a major requirement (i.e. law school). We have profound experience concerning the concept, implementation, analysis and evaluation of this kind of longitudinal testing.  Anyone that would like to develop a progress test in any field is invited to contact us
