|In the recent years, medical and healthcare higher education institutions compile their curricula in different ways in order to cover all necessary topics and sections that the students will need to go through to success in their future clinical practice. A medical and healthcare curriculum consists of many descriptive parameters, which define statements of what, when, and how students will learn in the course of their studies. For the purpose of understanding a complicated medical and healthcare curriculum structure, we have developed a web-oriented platform for curriculum management covering in detail formal metadata specifications in accordance with the approved pedagogical background, namely outcome-based approach. Our platform provides a rich database that can be used for innovative detailed educational data analysis. In this contribution we would like to present how we used a proven process model as a way of increasing accuracy in solving individual analytical tasks with the available data. Moreover, we introduce an innovative approach on how to explore a dataset in accordance with the selected methodology. The achieved results from the selected analytical issues are presented here in clear visual interpretations in an attempt to visually describe the entire medical and healthcare curriculum.
