About the course

The Medical Assessment Exam Training course is aimed at dentists who wish to become accredited members of the BIG register in the Netherlands and therefore shortly need to take the AKV (Algemene kennis en vaardigheden, General Knowledge and Skills) test as part of the Medical Assessment exam.

Our exam course for the Dutch language element will prepare you for the following four aspects of the AKV test:

  • drawing out the main meaning of an article
  • giving a presentation
  • the dentist-patient interview
  • writing a report

This course will give you the skills you need to help you take the AKV test, but you should already have the language level (B2) needed for the exam, that is, at least Dutch State Exam Level II. (Staatsexamen NT2- II ). If you doubt about your level, or if you took the state exam a long time ago, we advise you to take our free placement test.

Learning goals

By the end of the course, you should:

  • understand fully what is required of them in each of the four parts of the test and know what they need to do.
  • be able to distinguish main points from side issues in a text and have practised summarising the main point of an article using referring words, linking words and correct grammatical structure.
  • know the basics of giving a short presentation using MS Powerpoint.
  • have practised conducting a dentist-patient interview in which they have covered aspects such as showing appropriate care, summarising and probing into what the patient says, and rounding off with a statement regarding follow-up appointments.
  • know what is expected of them in writing up the doctor-patient interview in MS Word, and have practised doing so.
