Rosa Bertisch-Weinberg was enrolled finally in fall term 1936/37 at the Medical School in the 5th year of her studies ('Absolutorium' was certified on Juli 18th, 1938) and was preparing for the final exams ('Rigorosen') in 1938.

She could finally finish her studies and graduated on July 21st, 1938, but only with the discriminating ceremony of a 'Nichtarierpromotion', which included at the same time that she was banned from her profession.
