Exploring the Opportunities and Challenges of Medical Students Paperback / softback
Edited by Elias A Jespersen
Exploring the Opportunities and Challenges of Medical Students begins with a systematic review of quality improvement curricula for medical students to identify current training techniques, learning outcomes, opportunities, and challenges to the implementation of quality improvement curricula.
Following this, the authors describe the curricula and analyze results from two short term programs: a summer research and scholarly program between the first and second year of medical school, and research rotation electives offered to third- and fourth- year students.
The authors also discuss the rationale for developing physician-leaders, review the need for incorporating leadership development programs in medical curriculum, and discuss the best practices of formulating such programs and their expected challenges.
This compilation goes on to compare first and third year medical students' commitments in relation to idealism, as several works have demonstrated that idealism decreases as the students' progress in their career, partially due to the hidden curriculum.
Using questionnaires as data collection instruments, one included paper reports on the qualitative analysis of responses and subsequent discussion in English, including implications and recommendations for Saudi Arabian medical education authorities to better achieve the objectives of medical education through the medium of language instruction.
Lastly, this collection describes the notion of physicians' social skills (with emphasis on shaping social skills in medical students during their studies) in Ukraine, a country in which health services have undergone difficult changes after 1991.
