LOOOP subprojects

LOOOP consists of a number of subprojects. The particular objective of each project ('Description', 'Justification' or 'Clarification') is indicated by the respective letter behind the project title.

The sub project 'Undergraduate [J]'
(since 2004) focuses on students and is divided into three consecutive stages of development, while "Postgraduate [J]" (since 2016) implements curriculum development and curriculum mapping into residency training.

The other subprojects provide the basis for all phases from undergraduate medical education and internship to the end of residency training.

NKLOOOP [C] (since 2014) developes and evaluates options for Implementation and mappability of the German
National Competence Based Catalogues of Learning Objectives for Undergraduate Medical Education (NKLM) using the LOOOP concept.

[C] (2009 to 2014) developed and validated a computer-based instrument for measuring the ability of clinical decision-making.

[D] (2013 to 2014) evaluated the usage of various curriculum mapping systems in the German-speaking countries.

[J] (since 2014) investigates the satisfaction of the lecturers and curriculum developers with different LOOOP-concepts and functions.

ADJust with the two subprojects PatCurr
[C] (2010 to 2014) and OpSCurr [C] (since 2014) has developed an algorithm to optimize patient availability and validated established computerized adjustments of the curriculum which ensure both feasibility and practicability of the planned curriculum.

[J] (since 2013) compares planned curricula with the "real" curriculum (perceived by the students) and analyzes the causes of deviations.

[D] (2010 to 2012) evaluated different strengths and weaknessesof different taxonomies for medical education.

[J] (2005 to2009) evaluated the influence of the distribution of the teaching format simulation in the curriculum on the outcome of students.

[C] (since 2014) examines the influence of the degree of reality of the learning environment on the acquisition of skills with focus on the placement within the learning spirals.

[J] (2008 to 2010) examined the relationship between self-confidence and the results of competency-based workplace based assesments..
