First Year Orientation Raffle

The Procedure and Terms and Conditions of the Raffle


1. Procedure

If you have just started studying medicine, are in your first semester and have received a postcard with the corresponding activation code at the start of the semester, in the period of August 27-October 31, 2018, you are invited to take part in the AMBOSS First Year Orientation Raffle.

How it works

  • Register for an AMBOSS account.

  • Redeem the 1-month access code on the  postcard by 31.10.2018. After redeeming your code, you can use AMBOSS for 1 month for free. After your 1 month, your free access will end unless you purchase a new code from our online store.  Your free access will not automatically be extended, nor will you be automatically charged once it ends. Your account, study notes and statistics will stay saved, and you will have access to them again whenever you redeem a new code. If you wish all your data to be permanently deleted, you may also opt for the option of deleting your account altogether.

  • By redeeming this access code you automatically take part in the raffle for the chance to win 5 AMBOSS Dissection kits, a trip with accommodation to New York and 6 years of free AMBOSS access.

We hope you enjoy exploring AMBOSS and wish you the best of luck with the raffle!
