Views of managed care--a survey of students, residents, faculty, and deans at medical schools in the United States. (1/2287)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Views of managed care among academic physicians and medical students in the United States are not well known. In 1997, we conducted a telephone survey of a national sample of medical students (506 respondents), residents (494), faculty members (728), department chairs (186), directors of residency training in internal medicine and pediatrics (143), and deans (105) at U.S. medical schools to determine their experiences in and perspectives on managed care. The overall rate of response was 80.1 percent. RESULTS: Respondents rated their attitudes toward managed care on a 0-to-10 scale, with 0 defined as "as negative as possible" and 10 as "as positive as possible." The expressed attitudes toward managed care were negative, ranging from a low mean (+/-SD) score of 3.9+/-1.7 for residents to a high of 5.0+/-1.3 for deans. When asked about specific aspects of care, fee-for-service medicine was rated better than managed care in terms of access (by 80.2 percent of respondents), minimizing ethical conflicts (74.8 percent), and the quality of the doctor-patient relationship (70.6 percent). With respect to the continuity of care, 52.0 percent of respondents preferred fee-for-service medicine, and 29.3 percent preferred managed care. For care at the end of life, 49.1 percent preferred fee-for-service medicine, and 20.5 percent preferred managed care. With respect to care for patients with chronic illness, 41.8 percent preferred fee-for-service care, and 30.8 percent preferred managed care. Faculty members, residency-training directors, and department chairs responded that managed care had reduced the time they had available for research (63.1 percent agreed) and teaching (58.9 percent) and had reduced their income (55.8 percent). Overall, 46.6 percent of faculty members, 26.7 percent of residency-training directors, and 42.7 percent of department chairs reported that the message they delivered to students about managed care was negative. CONCLUSIONS: Negative views of managed care are widespread among medical students, residents, faculty members, and medical school deans.  (+info)

The role of curriculum in influencing students to select generalist training: a 21-year longitudinal study. (2/2287)

To determine if specific curricula or backgrounds influence selection of generalist careers, the curricular choices of graduates of Mount Sinai School of Medicine between 1970 and 1990 were reviewed based on admission category. Students were divided into three groups: Group 1, those who started their first year of training at the School of Medicine; Group 2, those accepted with advanced standing into their third year of training from the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, a five-year program developed to select and produce students likely to enter primary care fields; and Group 3, those accepted with advanced standing into the third year who spent the first two years at a foreign medical school. All three groups took the identical last two years of clinical training at the School of Medicine. These were no significant differences with respect to initial choice of generalist training programs among all three groups, with 46% of the total cohort selecting generalist training. Of those students who chose generalist programs, 58% in Group 1, 51% in Group 2, and 41% in Group 3 remained in these fields rather than progressing to fellowship training. This difference was significant only with respect to Group 3. However, when an analysis was performed among those students providing only primary care as compared to only specialty care, there were no significant differences. Analysis by gender revealed women to be more likely to select generalist fields and remain in these fields without taking specialty training (P < .0001). Differentiating characteristics with respect to choosing generalist fields were not related to either Part I or Part II scores on National Board Examinations or selection to AOA. However, with respect to those specific specialties considered quite competitive (general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, and ophthalmology), total test scores on Part I and Part II were significantly higher than those of all other students. The analysis indicated that, despite the diverse characteristics of students entering the third year at the School of Medicine, no one group produced a statistically greater proportion of generalists positions than any other, and academic performance while in medical school did not have a significant influence on whether a student entered a generalist field.  (+info)

Introducing managed care to the medical school curriculum: effect on student attitudes. (3/2287)

In order to assess the effect of clinical training and didactic instruction on medical student attitudes toward managed care, we conducted a survey of all medical students at the midpoint of their third year clerkships at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The students were exposed to clinical training in managed care settings and a 2-day required course on the principles underlying managed care. The main outcome measures were student attitudes toward the concepts of managed care, managed care organizations, and future careers in managed care. Students also assessed the attitudes of medical faculty toward managed care. Attitudes of students with previous clinical training in managed care settings did not differ from those of students without such exposure toward the concepts underlying managed care or managed care organizations and were less positive about careers in managed care. Student responses before and after the 2-day course on managed care demonstrated that attitudes moved in a significantly positive direction. Seventy-one percent of students reported that the opinions they had heard from medical faculty about managed care were negative. Preparing medical students to practice medicine effectively in managed care settings will require focused attention on managed care issues in the medical school curriculum and the combined efforts of academic health centers and managed care organizations.  (+info)

Comparing ambulatory preceptors' and students' perceptions of educational planning. (4/2287)

To compare ambulatory preceptors' and students' perceptions of the use of educational planning (setting goals, assessing needs, formulating objectives, choosing methods, and providing feedback and evaluation) in the office setting, we mailed a survey, which was returned by 127 longitudinal ambulatory preceptors and 168 first-year and second-year medical students. Faculty perceptions did not match student perceptions of what occurred in the longitudinal preceptor program teaching sessions in educational planning areas. Students perceived these activities were occurring with much less frequency than faculty perceived. Medical education needs to move beyond the usual faculty development workshop paradigm to a more comprehensive educational development model that includes training both faculty and students in core educational skills. This will enable the ambulatory setting to reach its full educational potential in training future physicians.  (+info)

Experiences and attitudes of residents and students influence voluntary service with homeless populations. (5/2287)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of two programs at the University of Pittsburgh, one that requires and one that encourages volunteer activity. In the program that requires primary care interns to spend 15 hours in a homeless clinic, we measured volunteer service after the requirement was fulfilled. In the program that encourages and provides the structure for first- and second-year medical students to volunteer, we assessed correlates of volunteering. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: When primary care interns were required to spend time at homeless clinics, all (13/13) volunteered to work at the same clinic in subsequent years. Categorical interns without this requirement were less likely to volunteer (24/51; chi2 = 12.7, p >. 001). Medical students who volunteered were more likely to be first-year students, have previously volunteered in a similar setting, have positive attitudes toward caring for indigent patients, and have fewer factors that discouraged them from volunteering (p <. 01 for all) than students who did not volunteer. CONCLUSIONS: Volunteering with underserved communities during medical school and residency is influenced by previous experiences and, among medical students, year in school. Medical schools and residency programs have the opportunity to promote volunteerism and social responsibility through mentoring and curricular initiatives.  (+info)

Tracing the evolution of critical evaluation skills in students' use of the Internet. (6/2287)

This paper documents the evolving uses of the Internet made by public health graduate students and traces the development of their search methods and critical evaluative criteria. Early in the first semester and again six months later, twenty-four graduate students in a problem-based learning curriculum, which emphasizes evidence-based critical thinking skills, were required to describe their most helpful resources and to evaluate these resources critically. The answers were coded for the types of resources the students used, how frequently they were used, and why they were used. Student perception of the usefulness of resources, especially the Internet, and ability to evaluate these resources critically changed greatly. Initially, 96% of the students stated that the Internet was their most helpful resource. Six months later, these students continued to use the Internet; however, it was not their most useful source. At the later point, students had very specific uses for the Internet. Their most frequently used evaluation criterion was the reliability and objectivity of the source of the information. By the end of the first year of study, the majority of the students demonstrated an understanding of the principles of evidence-based practice and applied them to their research and analysis of information resources.  (+info)

Can paediatric medical students devise a satisfactory standard of examination for their colleagues? (7/2287)

OBJECTIVES: To determine what standard paediatric medical students would set for examining their peers and how that would compare with the university standard. DESIGN: Single blinded computer marked examination with questionnaire. SETTING: University medical school. SUBJECTS: Medical students during their final paediatric attachment. INTERVENTIONS: Medical students asked to derive 10, five branch negatively marked multiple choice questions (MCQs) to a standard that would fail those without sufficient knowledge. Each 10 were then assessed by another student as to the degree of difficulty and the relevance to paediatrics. One year later student peers sat a mock MCQ examination derived from a random 40 questions (unaware that the mock MCQs had been derived by peers). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Comparison of marks obtained in mock and final MCQ examinations; student perception of the standard in the two examinations assessed by questionnaire. RESULTS: 44 students derived 439 questions, of which 83% were considered an appropriate standard by a classmate. One year later 62 students sat the mock examination. Distribution of marks was better in the mock MCQ examination than the final MCQ examination. Students considered the mock questions to be a more appropriate standard (72% v 31%) and the topics more relevant (88% v 64%) to paediatric medical students. Questions were of a similar clarity in both examinations (73% v 78%). CONCLUSIONS: Students in this study were able to derive an examination of a satisfactory standard for their peers. Involvement of students in deriving examination standards may give them a better appreciation of how standards should be set and maintained.  (+info)

What do internal medicine residents need to enhance their diabetes care? (8/2287)

OBJECTIVE: To identify areas that should be targeted for improvement in care, we examined internal medicine resident practice patterns and beliefs regarding diabetes in a large urban hospital outpatient clinic. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Internal medicine residents were surveyed to assess the frequency at which they performed key diabetes quality of care indicators. Responses were compared with recorded performance derived from chart and laboratory database reviews. Resident attitudes about diabetes were determined using the Diabetes Attitude Survey for Practitioners. Finally, an eight-item scale was used to assess barriers to diabetes care. RESULTS: Both self-described and recorded performance of recommended diabetes services short of national recommendations. For yearly eye examinations and lipid screening, recorded performance levels were similar to trainees' reports. However, documented inquiries about patient self-monitoring of blood glucose, performance of foot examinations, and urine protein screening were lower than trainees' reports. Some 49% of the residents selected a target HbA1c of 6.6-7.5% as an attainable goal, yet half of the patients using oral agents or insulin had HbA1c values > 8.0%. No differences in self-described or recorded performance were found by year of training. Most residents did not perceive themselves to need additional training related to diabetes care, and residents were generally neutral about patient autonomy. Patient nonadherence and time constraints within the clinic were most often cited as barriers to care. CONCLUSIONS: The study identifies several areas that require improvement in resident care of diabetes in the ambulatory setting. Because experience during training contributes to future practice patterns, developing a program that teaches trainees how to implement diabetes practice guidelines and methods to achieve optimal glycemic control may be key to future improvements in the quality of diabetes care.  (+info)

Background: Sudden cardiac death is the most common lethal manifestation of heart disease and often the first and only indicator. Prompt initiation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) undoubtedly saves lives. Nevertheless, studies report a low level of competency of medical students in CPR, mainly due to deterioration of skills following training. objectives: To evaluate the retention of CPR skills and confidence in delivering CPR by preclinical medical students. methods: A questionnaire and the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) were used to assess confidence and CPR skills among preclinical, second and third-year medical students who had passed a first-aid course during their first year but had not retrained since. results: The study group comprised 64 students: 35 were 1 year after training and 29 were 2 years after training. The groups were demographically similar. Preparedness, recollection and confidence in delivering CPR were significantly lower in the 2 years after ...

BACKGROUND: Evidence-based medicine (EBM) has been included in the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) milestones project as a required component during emergency medicine (EM) residency training. Milestone Level One states that graduating medical students must be able to describe basic principles of EBM. OBJECTIVE: We sought to identify the EBM skills of third- and fourth-year medical students. METHODS: Our institution, a network with 17 different residencies, hosts U.S. osteopathic and allopathic medical students. As a part of orientation, students are required to complete an entry Fresno Test of EBM (FTEBM). Retrospectively, medical student FTEBM scores from 2011 were assessed using descriptive statistics. RESULTS: Four hundred seventeen FTEBM scores were analyzed. Participants represented 40 medical schools, including 17 allopathic (MD) and 23 osteopathic (DO) schools. Fifty percent of participants (n = 210) were female,

The Thomas Jefferson University Department of Radiation Oncology welcomes fourth year medical students interested in a four week rotation. The goal of this four week clinical rotation is for medical students to learn the fundamentals of radiation oncology. Students can use this rotation as an opportunity to explore the specialty as a possible career choice. Students interested in gaining a deeper understanding of oncology care but not planning to pursue radiation oncology will find this course useful to understand radiation oncology as a specialty and therefore better be able to coordinate and deliver optimal multi-disciplinary care and counsel future patients. Located in a NCI designated cancer center, our fourth year, four week rotation consists of the medical student being assigned to one faculty member each day with whom he or she will see patients in clinic. During the clerkship, students will be expected to work-up patients, perform physical exams, and present cases to faculty. Students ...

Context: Medical school can produce intense psychological distress in its students; however, there is a paucity of research exploring potential means of improving medical students well-being. Objective: To investigate the relationship between physical exercise and stress and quality of life (QOL) in a medical student population. Methods: This nonrandomized, controlled, 12-week study used a survey research design. First- and second-year osteopathic medical students at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine were recruited to participate in 1 of 3 groups: (1) students participating in 30-minute CXWORX (Les Mills International LTD) group fitness classes; (2) students exercising alone or with up to 2 additional partners regularly (eg, running, weight lifting), henceforth called the health-enhancement group; and (3) students in a control group who did not engage in regular exercise. Participants completed the Perceived Stress Scale survey once every 4 weeks, as well as visual ...
Our main finding was that prospective medical students were fairly clear what they want to do. Ninety-five per cent are able to state a definite intention to go into a specific speciality while also finding another four or five specialities very attractive.. Sixth-form students rate their definite intention of pursuing psychiatry at a similar level to general medicine (12.4% and 12.2%, respectively). This is in marked contrast to recent findings in fourth-year medical students (McParland et al, 2003), only 1.4% of whom expressed a definite intention to pursue psychiatry before their psychiatry attachment. After the attachment, this rose to 4.7%.. This story is mirrored in the attitude data. Sixth-form students have a very positive attitude to psychiatry. Their mean ATP-30 score of 110.0 compares with fourth-year medical students scores of 102.6 before their psychiatry attachment and 107.7 after it (McParland et al, 2003).. We cannot be sure how many of the sixth-form attenders we studied will ...

UI patient simulator an important tool for training medical students and residents. IOWA CITY, Iowa -- In an academic medical center like the University of Iowa College of Medicine, medical students learn a great deal from the patients they see. One patient in particular at the UI has provided valuable learning experiences for dozens of medical students and numerous anesthesia residents and physicians.. Obviously, this is no ordinary patient. In fact he is the UIs state-of-the-art patient simulator, a life-like mannequin complete with pulses, breath sounds, blood pressure and reactive pupils. In the 18 months since his arrival at the UI he has undergone hundreds of anesthesia procedures performed by UI ...
To examine the extent of medical students relationships with industry - as well as the impact of these interactions - my colleagues, Kirsten Austad and Jerry Avorn, M.D., and I conducted a systematic review of the literature, examining all published studies on this topic and collecting the results from a total of 9,850 medical students studying at 76 medical schools. We confirmed that most students have some form of interaction with the pharmaceutical industry, and that such contact increases in the clinical years, with up to 90 percent of all clinical students receiving some form of educational materials. In the studies, medical students generally found industry-supplied materials useful, but agreed that the materials could be biased in self-serving ways. Almost two-thirds of students reported that they were immune to bias induced by promotion, gifts or interactions with sales representatives, although a substantial number agreed that others could be affected. It seems that physicians ...
To the Editor:. We read with great interest the paper by McCoy et al.1 published in the January 2019 issue of your valuable journal. The authors sought to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of high-fidelity simulation training vs standard manikin training for teaching medical students, using the American Heart Association guidelines for high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). They concluded that high-fidelity simulation training was better than low-fidelity CPR manikin training.. Although this study was done in detail with an interesting result, there are some important methodological issues which should be considered to improve its application in practice and for future research:. The participants wereall fourth-year medical students, but there was no information about baseline data regarding their characteristics. Wouldnt this issue be important as to whether or not the characteristics between the two groups were comparable?. There were two comparative groups in the study, but ...
Medical students in the United States are frequently exposed to pharmaceutical marketing, even in their preclinical years, and the extent of their contact with industry is associated with positive attitudes about marketing and skepticism towards any negative implications. These findings from research led by Kirsten Austad and Aaron S. Kesselheim from the Harvard Medical School in Boston, USA, published in this weeks PLoS Medicine, suggest that strategies to educate students about interactions with the pharmaceutical industry should directly address widely-held misconceptions about the effects of marketing.. The authors examined all published studies on this topic and collected the results from a total of 9,850 medical students studying at 76 medical schools. The authors found that most students had some form of interaction with the pharmaceutical industry and that contact increased in the clinical years, with up to 90% of all clinical students receiving some form of educational materials.

Ann Arbor, Mich. - Medical students experience depression at a higher rate than the general population and attach high levels of stigma to the mental illness, according to U-M research to be published Sept. 15 in the Journal of the American Medical Association.. The study showed that 53.3 percent of medical students who reported high levels of depressive symptoms were worried that revealing their illness would be risky. Almost 62 percent of the same students said asking for help would mean the students coping skills were inadequate.. Those with moderate to severe depression also agreed that revealing depression would mean others would find them unable to handle medical school responsibilities and that fellow students would respect them less.. The study showed 14.3 percent of the students reported moderate to severe depression, which is higher than the 10 to 12 percent usually found in the general population, says Thomas L. Schwenk, M.D., the lead author on the paper and the George A. Dean, M.D. ...
Teaching evidence-based medicine (EBM) to medical students can be tough, and even the most enthusiastic champions of EBM concede that many (most?) medical students emerge unconvinced of EBMs value. Some students "just dont get it"; others see EBM as idealistic, impractical, and unable to overcome the barriers of limited time, evidence, and generalizability. Students want quick and simple answers to myriad questions, which are often more complicated than they seem. But EBM and its teaching were initially devised for qualified doctors who were already accustomed to the subtleties and vagaries of clinical practice; answers are rarely quick or simple ...
Context Over one year after passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), legislators, healthcare experts, physicians, and the general public continue to debate the implications of the law and its repeal. The PPACA will have a significant impact on future physicians, yet medical student perspectives on the legislation have not been well documented. Objective To evaluate medical students understanding of and attitudes toward healthcare reform and the PPACA including issues of quality, access and cost. Design, Setting, and Participants An anonymous electronic survey was sent to medical students at 10 medical schools (total of 6982 students) between October-December 2010, with 1232 students responding and a response rate of 18%. Main Outcome Measures Medical students views and attitudes regarding the PPACA and related topics, measured with Likert scale and open response items. Results Of medical students surveyed, 94.8% agreed that the existing United States healthcare system

For medical students, dual degrees gain popularity The Stanford medical students plan to become a pediatrician shifted while he was in Africa, where he set up health clinics and studied ways to deliver HIV treatments at a low cost. Two years after he enrolled in Stanford Universitys School of Medicine, he also started working toward a masters in business administration. A growing number of medical students nationwide are putting in the extra time to earn dual degrees in public health, academic medicine and seemingly disparate fields such as law and business. Students learn other disciplines as they are learning medicine mostly so they can understand systems of health care, the root causes of health problems, how to be more effective in education and prevention, and how to manage health care, said Gabriel Garcia, associate dean of admissions at Stanfords medical school. Enrollment risesNationwide, dual programs in medicine and academic research, medicine and law, and medicine and business have

The problem with doing a medical student rotation in anesthesia is that it is hard to get a good perspective of what anesthesia is like as a resident, attending, or private practice physician. For most students (including me, when I did my anesthesia rotation), everything is so foreign and alien, its hard to know how to fit in. The normal things that medical students are good at - pre-rounding, interviewing patients, reading about diseases - all go out the door. And practical anesthesia deals with things medical students are no good at - doses, how to draw up a medication into a syringe, how to talk to an attending surgeon, what a ventilator does. But its important to realize that we dont expect a medical student to come in with any knowledge about anesthesia. We dont expect anyone to go into this field. We dont expect a medical student to make our day easier or do stuff for us. The case will go fine and the patient will do well with or without a student. But we do want to see enthusiasm, ...

Background. Student electives during the 5th year of the University of Cape Town (UCT) medical curriculum provide a 4-week work experience in the health system. The reflective reports of past students indicate that the electives may significantly shape their developing identities as health professionals and agents of change. Objective. To better understand how 5th-year medical elective students perceive themselves as agents of change to strengthen the elective programme in the Faculty of Health Sciences, UCT. The hypothesis was that the more choice that students are given over their learning, the greater is their sense of agency. Methods. Thirteen 5th-year student volunteers participated in four focus group discussions soon after completing their electives in district, regional or tertiary health facilities in the South African health system. Thematic analysis of the transcripts was performed independently by two of the authors. Results. Key themes were the importance of providing holistic patient
Four medical students conducted a community service program at a local youth custody centre. The program included cooking, exercise, and health-oriented educational discussions. The experience enforced the CanMEDS competencies and allowed the students to develop a greater appreciation of specific health care needs of marginalized populations. This may better prepare students to care for marginalized patients in the future as physicians. Community service learning opportunities are a valuable adjunct to conventional medical education..

In this sample of medical students and young doctors, there was already a significant number (41.7%) with an out-of-Kathmandu background (according to place of SLC) with no selective admissions policy in any of the colleges. This appears to provide less of an opportunity to increase rural practice than in western experience and as suggested by WHO [2, 3]. Interestingly, the proportion of medical students and young doctors with an out-of-Kathmandu background was highest (48.7%) in the year 1 students and was significantly higher among males and in the colleges outside of Kathmandu (Table 1 and Figure 2).. Unsurprisingly, most of the respondents came from families with academic backgrounds (73.4% with father with bachelor level or above and with only 4.4% below SLC) though there was a significantly lower proportion in those from an out-of-Kathmandu background (62.8%) with no difference between Kathmandu and out-of-Kathmandu colleges (Figure 2). Also, most (93.6%) respondents had undertaken their ...

Considering the importance of quality of life in medical students we have conducted a cross sectional & descriptive study on screening of mental illness of 60 medical students of prefinal year and comparing it with 60 students of third year of Science and Art College. Students were selected via random sampling. GHQ-12 was used as a screening tool and after obtaining scores students were graded in 3 categories - individuals screened positive for psychological morbidity were of Grades 2 and 3 and individuals screened negative for psychological morbidity were of Grade 1 and they were compared according to college, gender & residence. Students screened positive for psychological morbidity as per GHQ-12 were found higher in medical college (87%) as compared to Science and Art College (45%) and a statistically significant association was found between psychological morbidity and medical students. Psychological morbidity was not significantly associated with residence and gender. ...
This study showed that 2.1% of total number of participants were at risk and 5.2% were addicted users, so 7.3 % of all participants were considered problematic users. In a study conducted by Deng and colleagues, it was also found that the prevalence of this disorder was 5.52% among students which is consistent with our own results. Similarly, Ramazani and colleagues found the total prevalence of 3% for Iranian medical students (1). Similar study was conducted among students of Turkish University of Medical Sciences showing the prevalence of internet addiction is 24 (10.3%) among nursing students, 7 (9.9%) among midwifery students, 5 (9.1%) among medical rescue students and 42 (19.6%) among physiotherapy students (10, 11). It must be noted that comparing these studies is a difficult task because of differences in study populations, applied tools and differences in social and cultural contexts.

Conclusions This survey has shown a poor understanding of oxygen therapy in many emergency situations. Of concern, the knowledge of our registrars dealing with medical emergencies was poorer than the foundation doctors and medical students. This may be a reflection that since the BTS emergency oxygen guidelines production, teaching on emergency oxygen has now become an integral part of medical student teaching which more senior doctors will not have benefited from. Education on oxygen therapy should be mandatory in medical schools and also to doctors in all grades throughout the trust.. ...
Allyson Brown, a second year medical student at UCF College of Medicine, wrote the #OrlandoStrong poem to express feelings about Pulse shooting
Teaching medical ethics to medical students in a pluralistic society is a challenging task. Teachers of ethics have obligations not just to teach the subject matter but to help create an academic environment in which well motivated students have reinforcement of their inherent good qualities. Emphasis should be placed on the ethical aspects of daily medical practice and not just on the dramatic dilemmas raised by modern technology. Interdisciplinary teaching should be encouraged and teaching should span the entire duration of medical studies. Attention should be paid particularly to ethical problems faced by the students themselves, preferably at the time when the problems are most on the students minds. A high level of academic demands, including critical examination of students progress is recommended. Finally, personal humility on the part of teachers can help set a good example for students to follow. ...

The medical school application and training process is demanding, with many medical students experience great deals of both physical and emotional stress. Psychological stress due to academic, ethical and financial pressures has led to high prevalence of psychological morbidity, including burn-out and depression. Psychological distress may also manifest as musculoskeletal symptoms, even in young populations. Previous studies have reported a high incidence of musculoskeletal pain in medical students.
The Gillies McIndoe Research Institute (GMRI) has demonstrated that supporting budding science and medical researchers can achieve significant benefits.. Sam Siljee and Emily Keane are two of those success stories; they have recently co-authored a research paper which Sam says "is far-reaching in terms of the understanding of venous malformation".. Sam and Emily are respectively fifth and final year medical students at the University of Otago.. During spells as GMRI summer students the pair investigated venous malformation, a condition of dilated veins that occurs at birth and can affect any part of the body. It is not only disfiguring, but can cause problems such as pain and loss of function, and can sometimes be life-threatening. There is no satisfactory treatment for the condition.. "The best part of this novel research is that we found the regulatory system for venous malformation, which can be controlled with the same drugs people take for high blood pressure," said Sam.. "We can control ...

Each group of students researches the vaccines that are due, responds to specific parental concerns about vaccines and the vaccine schedule, and answers facilitator generated follow-up questions. The groups findings and agreed upon approach to the concerned parent are then shared with the larger group.. Results: Students reviewed the curriculum content and the flipped classroom approach favorably. They reported the curriculum provided them with an enjoyable and effective learning experience. Discussion: We restructured the curriculum from a traditional PowerPoint lecture to a case-based interactive session to teach both basic vaccine knowledge and to allow students the opportunity to practice addressing common parental concerns. Ultimately, we will compare the students who participated in this curriculum to a control group who received a traditional lecture regarding vaccines. We will assess vaccine-related knowledge and confidence discussing vaccines with families, including vaccine hesitant ...

A student undertaking medical studies in Australia may occupy either a full fee-paying undergraduate place, funded entirely through the tuition fees paid by the student, or a Commonwealth-supported university place where, through the Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS), the student is required to pay for only part of the cost of his or her degree.. Some medical students occupying Commonwealth-supported university places are participating in the Bonded Medical Places Scheme (BMPS) or have received scholarships through the Medical Rural Bonded Scholarship Scheme (MRBSS).. Students participating in the BMPS have a return of service obligation to work in an Area of Workforce Shortage, identified by the Commonwealth, for a period of time equal to the length of the medical degree. However, up to half the return of service obligation can be met while completing prevocational training and vocational training. Recipients of the MRBSS scholarship are required to work for six continuous years in a ...
Hey all,. We are extremely lucky to be hosting 3 third-year medical students and a resident from A.T. Still this Monday at our meeting. The students will be running a suturing clinic, showing us various knots that are used in surgery. This was so well received last year that we wanted to bring it to you all again. This years clinic will run slightly different than last years, though.. This year, the med students will be bringing over actual nylon sutures with needles attached, as well as the needle holders. This will give a much more realistic experience when it comes to suturing. The needles are totally real and will be able to stab you, so please be careful.. The plan is to suture bananas. AMSA will be purchasing approximately 60 bananas for this meeting, so it will be first come, first serve. For those of you who eat in the dining hall, grab a banana on your way out and bring it to the meeting. The meeting will be in MG 2001 at 7pm. Hope to see you all there!. Josh. ...

I seem to be missing a lot of time in my life. Here i sit, in front of my computer, wondering where the hell my life has gone the past few weeks. The past few months. Years.. Its already nearing the end of May. Halfway through our Semester 2. A couple more months and we can "proudly" introduce ourselves as second year medical students. At times i think ive learned so damn much since i came into IMU. Yet sometimes, i just felt i had most likely wasted my first year as a medical student not really trying to be a medical student.. Heard the story from our lecturer PKL bout a medical student on a flight who saved the life of a lady with pneumothorax with a pair of scissors. Then during PBL yesterday Prof Robinson was talking to us bout how if were ever unfortunate enough to be in a disaster zone when it happened, we would have been expected by the other survivors to be the leader in organising things, if we so happen to be the most educated person there, even if were only medical ...
Students who major in English at the University of Scranton do a lot of reading and writing, and they are expected to write and speak with clarity and focus, and to use textual evidence in support of their arguments. Because of their training and experience in these areas, our students may be better able to respond with confidence and competence when they encounter the readings and the problem-solving questions on the MCAT.. "OK," you might be thinking, "its possible-but has anyone actually done it?" Actually, yes. The Department of English & Theatre has an odd little winning streak going: the student who served as managing editor of Esprit (our student-run literary magazine) for the 2008-2009 academic year is currently a second-year medical student at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia (where she was part of a group that recently started a literary magazine for her fellow medical students). Not to be outdone, the managing editor of Esprit for the 2009-2010 academic year will be a ...

We measure the social preferences of a sample of US medical students and compare their preferences with those of the general population sampled in the American Life Panel (ALP). We also compare the medical students with a subsample of highly educated, wealthy ALP subjects as well as elite law school students and undergraduate students. We further associate the heterogeneity in social preferences within medical students to the tier ranking of their medical schools and their expected specialty choice. Our experimental design allows us to rigorously distinguish altruism from preferences regarding equality-efficiency tradeoffs and accurately measure both at the individual level rather than pooling data or assuming homogeneity across subjects ...
I started medical school in 2007 wanting to making people better. I stopped medical school in 2010 facing the reality of not being able to get better myself, being ill and later to be diagnosed with several long term health conditions. This post is about my transition from being a medical student, to the other side - being a patient. There are many things I wish I knew about long-term health conditions and patients when I was a medical student. I hope that through this post, current medical students can become aware of some of theses things and put them into practice as doctors themselves. I went to medical school because I wanted to help people and make them better. I admired doctors up on their pedestals for their knowledge and skills and expertise to fix things. The hardest thing for me was accepting that doctors cant always make people better - they couldnt make me better. Holding doctors so highly meant it was very difficult for me to accept their limitations when it came to incurable ...

True mastery occurs over a lifetime and is, perhaps, an ever-expanding zone of distal development. However, there are more proximal goals medical students may achieve in the immediate future and over the course of their four year tenure in medical school.. Curricula should be written to account for this process, expecting students to begin to master basic science and clinical knowledge in preclinical years and to build on that knowledge throughout supervised practice in clinical years. ...

Periodically I like to give an informal quiz to the medical students about HIV epidemiology. Its a multiple choice question that goes something like this:
Not every medical student becomes a doctor. Although not a frequent problem, about 6 percent of medical students are unsuccessful in meeting their dream within seven years, according to a 2007 study from the Association of American Medical Colleges.
This letter by Polasek and Kolcic (BMJ 2005;331:1204, 19 Nov) contains a couple of errors. Firstly, the second authors name is given the wrong way round-it should be Ivana Kolcic, rather than the more unusual Kolcic Ivana. Secondly, the authors provided the wrong results from their analysis of final year medical students from Zagrebs medical school. The last sentence of the second paragraph should read: "The logistic regression results indicate that better ranked students (odds ratio 2.60, 95% confidence interval 1.16 to 5.82), younger medical students (odds ratio 0.83, 0.73 to 0.95), and those interested in scientific work (odds ratio 3.10, 1.10 to 8.84) considered emigrating from Croatia." ...
Workforce planning is a central issue for service provision and has consequences for medical education. Much work has been examined the career intentions, career preferences and career destinations of UK medical graduates but there is little published about medical students career intentions. How soon do medical students formulate careers intentions? How much do these intentions and preferences change during medical school? If they do change, what are the determining factors? Our aim was to compare medical students career preferences upon entry into and exit from undergraduate medical degree programmes. This was a cross-sectional questionnaire survey. Two cohorts [2009-10, 2010-11] of first and final year medical students at the four Scottish graduating medical schools took part in career preference questionnaire surveys. Questions were asked about demographic factors, career preferences and influencing factors. The response rate was 80.9% [2682/3285]. Significant differences were found across the four
Outstanding student research projects were featured Nov. 28 during the inaugural Medical Student Research Day. The Health Science Centers Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Support Grant and the medical deans office helped to make Medical Student Research Day possible. Dr. Sunil Ahuja, the distinguished speaker for Research Day, discussed his studies of the "Host genetic determinants of HIV-1 infection." Worldwide, 22 million people have died after exposure to strains of the human immunodeficiency virus and progression to acquired immune deficiency syndrome. The disease progression is not the same in each person. Dr. Ahujas research addresses the question "Are all individuals equally susceptible to HIV/AIDS?" with the hypothesis that HIV-1 pathogenesis is a function of differences in expression of genes critical to the host response to HIV-1. "One combat zone in the HIV battlefield," he said, "is the individuals genetic makeup that either succumbs to viral entry into cells or else ...

by Marianna Chara. Attending medical school is singularly impressive; in most cases, only the brightest, most hardworking, ambitious students are accepted to and keep up with a medical university program of study. From course work to research to residencies, medical students likely spend more time in the library than they do at home. Its vital, then, to know not only about a universitys curriculum and tuition, but also about its librarys collections, special holdings, research support, digital resources, and even the design of its study areas. Whether youre applying to medical school, in the medical field, or just curious (many of these libraries are open to the public), bestmastersdegrees.com invites you to look at our list of 25 Most Impressive University Medical School Libraries..

Podcast: Play in new window , Download. Subscribe: Android , RSS. In this episode, we continue our series on getting ready to apply to college by talking about standardized college admissions tests.. We spoke in an earlier episode about colleges that did not require college admissions test scores and about colleges that looked at those scores perhaps for placement in college courses, but did not use them as an admissions hurdle. However, there are still a lot of colleges-both selective colleges and not-so-selective colleges-that do require college admissions test scores. For that reason, your child is better off taking one or both college admissions tests, even if you believe that he or she will not do particularly well on those tests.. As you undoubtedly know by now, there are two college admissions tests: the SAT, offered by The College Board, and the ACT, which came out of work originally done at the University of Iowa. The histories of these two tests-of how they came to be and of how they ...
Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is a compulsory exam to get admissions in undergraduate courses in the North American medical schools. In addition to the other admission guidelines, Medical school admissions team considers MCAT score as an important factor in admitting the candidates. MCAT basically tests the problem solving, critical thinking, and writing and science knowledge skills of the medical education aspirants across the countries. Many of the medical schools in USA do not consider the MCAT score, if the candidate took the examination more than three years back.. Examination Pattern: MCAT consists of 4 parts: Verbal Reasoning, Problems from Physical Sciences, Writing Samples and Biological Problems including Organic Chemistry. Except the Writing sample section, all sections of MCAT is given a score in the scale of 1 to 15 separately. Retaking MCAT is also offered to candidates. But it is highly advisable not to retake MCAT exam, as there is lesser chance of scoring with prominent ...
