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,
In reply:. Thank you for your interest in our study entitled Randomized Controlled Trial of Simulation vs Standard Training for Teaching Medical Students High-quality Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. Your comments and questions were insightful and appreciated.. The participants in this study were all fourth-year medical students enrolled in a required emergency medicine (EM) clerkship. We excluded foreign medical students doing an observation rotation in the emergency department to evaluate a representative group of U.S. medical students. All students were in their final year in medical school, on a required EM rotation, and had previous simulation experience with simulation as part of their medical school curriculum. The participants were balanced with regard to these independent variables.. We chose a prospective, randomized controlled trial study design as this is the optimal methodological approach to evaluate the effectiveness of an intervention compared to a control. Randomization affords ...
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 effect of rapidly increasing student debt on medical students ultimate career plans is of particular interest to residency programs desiring to enhance recruitment, including primary care specialties. Previous survey studies of medical students indicate that amount of student debt influences choice of medical specialty. Research on this topic to date remains unclear, and few studies have included the average income of different specialties in analyses. The purpose of this study is to observe whether empirical data demonstrates an association between debt of graduating medical students and specialties into which students match. This was a retrospective cross-sectional study of a public institution including data from graduation years 2010-2015. For each included student, total educational debt at graduation and matched specialty were obtained. Average income of each specialty was also obtained. Statistical hypothesis testing was performed to analyze any differences in average debt among specialties;

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 ...

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 ...
Introduction: The value of tablet computer use in medical education is an area of considerable interest, with preliminary investigations showing that the majority of medical trainees feel that tablet computers added value to the curriculum. This study investigated potential differences in tablet computer use between medical students and resident physicians. Materials & Methods: Data collection for this survey was accomplished with an anonymous online questionnaire shared with the medical students and residents at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine (SIU-SOM) in July and August of 2012. Results: There were 76 medical student responses (26% response rate) and 66 resident/fellow responses to this survey (21% response rate). Residents/fellows were more likely to use tablet computers several times daily than medical students (32% vs 20%, p = 0.035). The most common reported uses were for accessing medical reference applications (46%), e-Books (45%), and board study (32%). Residents were more
Author(s): Liu, Hongchun; Yansane, Alfa Ibrahim; Zhang, Yurong; Fu, Haijun; Hong, Nanrui; Kalenderian, Elsbeth | Abstract: This study aims to investigate burnout and study engagement among medical students at Sun Yat-sen University, China.A cross-sectional survey was conducted among undergraduate medical students of Sun Yat-sen University, China. A total of 453 undergraduate students completed a self-administered, structured questionnaire between January and February, 2016. Burnout and study engagement were measured using the Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Survey (MBI-SS) and the UTRECHT Work Engagement Scale-Students (UWES-S), respectively. Subjects who scored high in emotional exhaustion subscale, high in cynicism subscale, and low in professional efficacy subscale simultaneously were graded as having high risk of burnout. Independent sample t tests and chi-square tests were used to compare the differences in burnout and work engagement between genders, majors, and grade levels.The means (standard
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 ...

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

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

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Todays students were raised with a digital mouse in their hands.. So it should be no surprise that a majority of medical school students surveyed say video games and virtual reality environments could help them become better doctors.. A reported 98 percent of medical students surveyed at the University of Michigan and University of Wisconsin-Madison liked the idea of using technology to enhance their medical education, according to a study published online in BMC Medical Education.. For example, a virtual environment could help medical students learn how to interview a patient or run a patient clinic. In the survey, 80 percent of students said computer games can have an educational value.. The study helps dispel the stereotype of video games as the exclusive purview of adolescent loners. Instead they may be used as advanced teaching tools that fit an emerging learning style, authors say.. Due in large part to their high degree of technological literacy, todays medical ...

A students union, student government, free student union, student senate, students association, guild of students, or government of student body is a student organization present in many colleges, universities, and high schools. In higher education, the students union is often accorded its own building on the campus, dedicated to social, organizational activities, representation, and academic support of the membership. In the United States, student union often only refers to a physical building owned by the university with the purpose of providing services for students without a governing body. This building is also referred to as a student activity center, although the Association of College Unions International (largely US-based) has hundreds of campus organizational members. Outside the US, student union and students union refer to a representative body, as distinct from a student activity centre. Depending on the country, the purpose, assembly, method, and implementation of the group ...
In preparing for this role, general surgery residents learn how to perform everything from a mastectomy to a colectomy to a carotid endarterectomy and so much more. But surgeons must do more than learn the range of surgical procedures, they must also learn medicine. A patient rarely comes to the hospital with solely a surgical issue. They usually present with other medical problems (e.g., diabetes, hypertension, heart disease), which surgeons must consider during management.. As such, general surgery is an intense residency, with 30-hour call and four days off per month. As a surgery resident, Ill be pushed to my limits and then some. Itll be exhausting, to say the least. In fact, the amount of work hours deters many medical students from picking surgery.. Since I know wholeheartedly I want to become a surgeon, the long work hours dont bother me. I know my free time will be limited, so Ill have to use it wisely. Many surgical residents raise a family during residency, though doing so is ...

AMA-Assn.org The American Medical Association (AMA) adopted policy during its Annual meeting today aimed at better understanding the incidence of depression and suicide among physicians and physicians-in-training. With reports showing a lack of systematic reporting and inconsistencies in available data, the new policy offers recommendations on studying and collecting data that better reflect the actual incidence of and risk factors for physician, medical student, and resident suicide in the U.S. Specifically, the policy calls for the AMA to explore the viability and cost-effectiveness of regularly collecting National Death Index (NDI) data, as well as confidentially maintaining the manner of death information, for physicians, residents, and medical students listed as deceased in the AMA Physician Masterfile for long-term studies. Accordingly, the AMA plans to partner with a leading academic medical institution to conduct a pilot study using NDI to initially identify the manner of death for a subset of
23yo male medical student, headache and intermittent fever for 2 weeks…: 23yo male medical student, headache and intermittent fever for 2 weeks
The scope of this challenge is impressive. Accomplishing this goal will require changes in medical education, practice environments, and policy, while also identifying new funding, physicians, and resources to support them. We must expand pipeline programs, place more family doctors on medical school admissions committees, change admissions criteria to favor selection of candidates with a higher likelihood of choosing family medicine, identify new family physician mentors and role models, rigorously evaluate the impact of curricular and extracurricular activities on student choice, and increase attention to the medical student clerkship experience. Reaching 25 × 2030 will require changing the practice environment so that family doctors can address the challenges of electronic health records, performance metrics, prior authorizations, and other systemic issues contributing to morale injury and burnout. Finally, 25 × 2030 will require more than doubling the number of family medicine training ...
