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,
Communication with healthcare professionals is challenging for those with hearing loss. This study aimed to determine the impact dedicated deaf awareness training could have on medical students attitudes to and knowledge of deafness, and to explore ways of incorporating deaf awareness training into the core undergraduate medical curriculum. A validated questionnaire was used to measure attitudes to and knowledge of deafness in those taking an optional deaf awareness and basic sign language module for second year medical students compared to students who took another module. Previous students on this module were also contacted and asked to complete the same questionnaire. Focus groups with these students explored ways to incorporate deaf awareness training into the core undergraduate medical curriculum. After completing the module, students had a more positive attitude to deaf individuals (p | 0.001), and higher knowledge scores (p = 0.027) in comparison to the control group. Examination of data
FRIDAY, Dec. 6, 2019 (HealthDay News) - In 2017, less than 5 percent of all incoming medical students were rural students, according to a study published in the December issue of Health Affairs, a theme issue on rural health.. Scott A. Shipman, M.D., M.P.H., from the Association of American Medical Colleges in Washington, D.C., and colleagues obtained data on applicants and matriculants from the American Medical College Application Service for 2002-2003 through 2017-2018.. The researchers identified a 15-year decline in the number of rural medical students; in 2017, rural students represented less than 5 percent of all incoming medical students. In 2017, less than 0.5 percent of new medical students were students from underrepresented racial/ethnic-minority groups in medicine (URM) with rural backgrounds. In medical school, there was substantial and increasing underrepresentation of both URM and non-URM students with rural backgrounds. The number of rural medical students would need to quadruple ...

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 ...

Release: May 17, 2001. NOTE TO EDITORS: Medical students are scheduled to use the patient simulator on Monday and Tuesday between 3:30 and 5 p.m. If media are interested in using this time for photo opportunities, please contact Phillip Schmid, M.D., at 356-2633 or Jennifer Brown at 335-9917.. 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 ...

Objective: We investigated the sexual practices of medical students as they are positioned to serve as peer educators in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Methods: This was a cross sectional study, where self- administered questionnaires were distributed to consenting 4th to 6th year medical students in Jos, Nigeria with a view of elucidating information regarding sexual practices and condom utilization. Safe sex practice was defined as the use of condoms and being in a monogamous relationship. Results: Of a total of 400 questionnaires distributed, 365 respondents (249 males and 116 females) had adequate data for analysis. A large proportion (62%) of our students have never had sex before and less than 30% of them are sexually active. Only 6.1% had multiple sexual partners and homosexuality was uncommon (1.9%). Condom utilization amongst the sexually active was high (65%) and similar among male and female students (71.3% vs. 51.9% respectively, p = 0.08). Conclusion: There exists safe sexual practice ...
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

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

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 ...
education. To reduce the anxiety of the medical students by mentally preparing them before going to the dissection room. The questionnaires were distributed among 68 medical students. The pre-dissection questionnaire comprised questions related to demographic data and the first encounter with a cadaver. The students were randomly divided into experimental and control groups. The experimental group was prepared psychologically prior to dissection, but the control group entered the dissection room without any preparation. After the first dissection class, all students were surveyed by the second questionnaire which surveyed physical and cognitive symptoms of anxiety, resulting from exposure to the dissection room at the first visit and six weeks later. There was a significant difference [p<.05] in the rate of anxiety between experimental and control group in the initial visit. The difference in the rate of anxiety between the first exposure and six weeks later was significant in control group ...
The site contains an extensive range of MCQs and "fill in the blank" style questions for years one through to five of my Medical degree at Leeds.

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. The participants of this study stated the main purposes of using internet as the following (in order of ...

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..

Background Stereotyped cognitive schemes are the main cause of casting out patients with mental illness. Educational psychiatry programs have to be re-evaluated as medical students often have misconceptions about psychiatry. Objective The aim of the present study was to examine the attitude of fifth-year medical students toward psychiatric patients and disorders, and to reveal the influence of psychiatric study experience on their attitudes. Participants and methods In this interventional study, 300 fifth-year students from Ain Shams University Medical School were enrolled. Sociodemographic data sheet, Fahmy and El Sherbinys Social Classification Scale, and the Mental Illness Clinician Attitude Scale-2 were used on the first and last day of a 3-week clinical psychiatric round.

AU - Chen,Chi Chiung Grace. PY - 2017/1/11. Y1 - 2017/1/11. N2 - Background: Although simulation training beneficially contributes to traditional surgical training, there are less objective data on simulation skills retention. Objective: To investigate the retention of laparoscopic and robotic skills after simulation training. Methods: We present the second stage of a randomized single-blinded controlled trial in which 40 simulation-naïve medical students were randomly assigned to practice peg transfer tasks on either laparoscopic (N = 20, Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery, Venture Technologies Inc., Waltham, MA) or robotic (N = 20, dV-Trainer, Mimic, Seattle, WA) platforms. In the first stage, two expert surgeons evaluated participants on both tasks before (Stage 1: Baseline) and immediately after training ...
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. ...

METHODS: We added a US training program comprised of a self-study learning module and a hands-on training session to a two-week block curriculum of medical imaging for first year medical students (n = 40 ...
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 ...
146 students enrolled in the Problem Based Learning dental program at the University of Southern California School of Dentistry completed the Kolb s Learning Style Inventory 3 and a Likert scale satisfaction survey. 9 dimensions of students satisfaction were examined including the degree that students believe the PBL program is adequately preparing them to be successful in their future professional positions, how prepared students feel they are to work collaboratively with other professionals, the degree that students feel the program conveys basic science principles, the degree that students feel small groups help them acquire knowledge, how satisfied students are with the program s ability to prepare them for working with patients in the future, the degree that the program is meeting their expectations, and how the PBL program compares with past traditional education. Responses were analyzed to determine if learning style as defined by Kolb s Experiential Learning Theory related to ...

I look forward to meeting the medical students and high school students in this program. During the sessions they see MRI and plain film, but I think they like the ultrasound needle-guided session the best," said Julia R. Fielding, MD, chief of abdominal imaging at UT Southwestern Medical Center. "My colleague and I set out three phantoms containing fluid collections and fruit. The students were able to perform a fine needle aspiration and a core biopsy and see the results themselves! This led to all sorts of questions about applying to medical school, radiology diagnosis and the work day of a physician," added Fielding ...
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. ...

Students on either service will participate in discussions of cases admitted to both ...
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." ...
Most teaching hospitals require consent for participation of residents and medical students as part of routine admission; that is pretty clearly understood when you go to a teaching hospital.. The patient will just have to make do with a malpractice claim against the attending without the slam-dunk reinforcement of a criminal conviction against the student.. [...]. The patient may express a wish not to be treated by trainees. That aside, many teaching hospitals have general consent to have trainees participate in care as part of admissions paperwork. But whether consent was given or not isnt the issue here. The issue is whether the lack of consent constituted battery. ...
I would love to have had this book when I started my clinical years at medical school. It explains basic physics and imaging concepts well and is a good revision aid. I particularly like the relevant example cases and the self-test section. I would highly recommend this book to medical students in their clinical years." (Dr Sian Loe, Foundation Year Doctor, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford). "In summary, this text-book provides a low-cost and accessible guide to the radiology department that will be a vauable asset to medical students and doctors in training". (RAD Magazine, 1 January 2011). "But all in all, this is a good introduction to radiology and suitable for the target audience. The book is also well to date in a field in rapid development." (Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association, 18 November 2010).
