Abstract: (1) Background: the purpose of this study was a preliminary analysis of current methods of online teaching at the Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of Kragujevac, Republic of Serbia, in order to define the attitudes of biomedical students about education during the COVID-19 pandemic and to validate of the education medical questionnaire (eMedQ), a new tool for the assessment of the students’ perceptions about digital education. (2) Methods: this was a qualitative cross-sectional observational study that used the originally developed 45-item questionnaire (eMedQ) as an assessment instrument conducted on biomedical students (n = 209) of all study years at the Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of Kragujevac (Republic of Serbia), during winter semester or between September 2021 and January 2022. (3) Results: In this study, a Cronbach’s alpha value of 0.904 was obtained, which indicated good internal consistency; the correlation matrix revealed many coefficients greater than 0.3, denoting high correlations between the items. The Kaiser–Meyer–Olkin measure of sampling adequacy was 0.866 and Bartlett’s test of sphericity was significant (p < 0.001). The PCA revealed the presence of seven components with characteristic values over one, while three factors explained the highest percentage of variance. (4) Conclusions: this research developed and validated a new tool for evaluation of biomedical student perceptions about digital education.
