Examination is indispensable to medical education. It qualifies medical education, drives medical students to study hard, and provides guides for the students acquiring a large amount of medical knowledge. This study provides an approach to organize the question pool for medical examination. In this approach, many questions in the form of HTML based texts were stored and managed in text-and memo-type field of Microsoft Access database system. They could be retrieved from the database in computer-generated HTML file, which could be read in word processors and web browsers. Several advantages of HTML bases text were emphasized. Though they are essentially text format data which can be stored and processed easily in text-type field of databases, they don't lose character attributes such as bold, italic, underlined, superscript, subscript and so on. Also they can provide table facility and links to external graphic files. This approach can be applied in other medical information retrieval system.

Key Words: Medical education, HTML, Microsoft Access, Question Pool
