Abstract

background: The objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) is an approach to student assessment in which aspects of clinical competence are evaluated in a comprehensive, consistent and structured manner, with close attention to the objectivity of the process.Aims: This study aims to evaluate students‟ perception about the fairness, objectivity, comprehensiveness and overall organization and administration of OSCE in the 4th year medical students.Methods: 24-item questionnaire was used to gather data regarding perception of students about the quality of OSCE, its fairness and its organization. A 5-point Likert scale, with responses ranging from “strongly agree” to “strongly disagree” was used. Students were asked post exam questions related to positive and negative aspects of the OSCE and to do suggestions for improvement.Results: Out of 71 eligible medical students, 66 (92.9%) completed the survey questionnaire. A sizable proportion of 59.1% of the respondents agreed that OSCE was well administered. 51.5% of the students agreed that the objectives of clinical courses were covered. Significant percent of students 61.8% agreed to the facilitators‟ behavior.36, 4% of the respondents stated that the time allocated for each station was not adequate. 79.4% of the respondents felt that OSCE allowed them to compensate in some areas of their weakness. Great majority of students 81.9% regarded OSCE as a practical and useful assessment tool in early years of medical education.Discussion: It is assumed that overloading the students by trying to assess too many skill subsets of performance at a single station, and inadequate practice at being examined in the OSCE format might have contributed to the dissatisfaction with the time allocation.Conclusion and recommendations: OSCE exam covers most of the objectives of the students, clinical rotation. However, at some stations the students felt that instructions were ambiguous and time allocation was inadequate for the assigned tasks. The overall feedback was very useful and facilitated a critical review of the process. Our recommendations are; increasing the duration of stations especially for history taking and cardiac auscultation, modifying the administration of the OSCE aiming at reducing the waiting time especially for the students in the last batch, ensuring clear instructions, having real patients for the expected tasks, and finally more training with the OSCE.Keywords: OSCE, perception, medical students.

Abstract

Background: Although studies regarding the role of religious beliefs in psychological well being are relatively recent, the importance of people’s religiousness and spirituality for their health status has been widely acclaimed based on hundreds of published studies.
Patients and Methods: The Arabic Modified version of WHOQOL-SRPB (World health organization quality of life-spirituality, religiosity and personal belief) questionnaire was self administered to a systematic random sample of 100 fifth year medical students.
Results: Around a quarter (21-28%) of subjects perceived religiousness as very to extremely important. This percentage raised to 38% for spirituality and further to 61% for personal believes. The mean score for the “death and dying” facet was the lowest of all facets. The rate of students being satisfied on the overall SRPB measure was high ranging between 85 to 90%.
Conclusion: It was concluded that the students sample showed high rate of satisfaction by their QOL-SRPB instrument. It is realized that these religious and spiritual beliefs contributed to a good response to quality of life as it was similar to another sample in a nearby stable country (Jordan).Key Words:

Abstract

Background: All medical colleges give students courses in epidemiology and biostatistics to help them in understanding medical data and to prepare them to conduct graduate and professional research. After graduation, understanding and correct application of the principles of epidemiology and biostatistics help the physicians in making better diagnostic and management decision based on best evidence.
Patients and Methods: A cross-sectional questionnaire-based survey was carried out among junior (chronic resident) doctors at several hospitals in Baghdad from the 1st of January till the 31st October 2009. A total of 212 physicians answered the questionnaire which covered demographic characteristics, average score of graduation, number of published or accepted to publish researches, reading health/medical journals, understanding the methods and statistical analysis of research and the answers of 25 multiple choice questions (MCQs) in basic epidemiology and biostatistics.
Results: No physician conducted or participated in any medical or health research. Only 19.34% of them read medical/health journals regularly, 29.72% read occasionally, and 50.94% not read. For those who read the medical/health journals regularly or occasionally (104 respondents), 42.31% not understand the methods and the statistical analysis of the researches. For those who not read (108 respondents), 61.11% blame the difficulty of the methods and statistics of researches as a main cause to flee from the journals. The mean of the MCQs exam was 62.38% (which is not very promising), more than 50% 0f the physician got score below 55%, and more over, about one third failed in the exam. Conclusion: Improving our students (who will become doctors) experience of learning and knowledge of epidemiology and biostatistics courses is an urgent need to meet the evidence based transition in medicine.
