Study satisfaction as a facet of study success is discussed with growing interest in medical education in Germany. This survey illuminates study satisfaction of German undergraduate medical students from two different medical curricula from Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The central hypothesis is that students from the reformed curriculum (MSM) are more satisfied with their studies then students from the traditional curriculum (RSG). Aspects influencing the study satisfaction of this

Methods: Basing on a questionnaire aspects (qualitatively and quantitatively recorded) of study success and satisfaction of students of both programs at their end of studies are analysed. Data collection was carried out with voluntary participation using the online-software EvaSys from June to August 2016. According to Westermann, study satisfaction was defined as a multidimensional model and represented in a 5-point-scale. Data analysis was done by SPSS, Version 24&25, using Kruskal-Wallis-Tests, Mann-Whitney-U-Tests, T-Test, Chi-Quadrat-Tests and linear regression analysis. Results: 120 students of RSG and 64 Students of MSM participated in this survey (response rate 22%, 64% female students). In average students of RSG were one year older than their colleagues of MSM (RSG: 28,4 years; MSM: 26,7 years). Students from both curricula performed not significantly different during final exams (RSG: 83,2%; MSM 85,2% percentage of right answers) however students from MSM were significantly more satisfied with their studies (RSG: 3,36 points; MSM 3,74 points, p<0,01). With a Pearson r=0,3 and a Cohen d=0,64 the observed effect was medium sized. Additionally, students from MSM felt better prepared for their future work as clinicians. Relevant factors for the study satisfaction were surrounding conditions, design of content distribution of the curriculum, teaching staff and preparedness for future work. Sociodemographic factors and personality traits were subordinate to these. The competencies formulate [...]
