Medical placement trends
Medical Placements Trends
Whether to use just hospitals or a wider range of health resources is one of the debating-points in the updating of undergraduate medical training programmes. The Faculty of Medicine in the Autonomous University of Madrid integrated obligatory Primary Care placements for students in the last year of their course, into its syllabus as from 1988/89.
This programme and the students' own assessment of it was studied by means of a systematic, voluntary and anonymous survey, which covered various aspects of their assignments to Primary Care teams. 93% (473) replied. Every student took part in the clinical activities, both on demand and as programmed.
76% went on home visits along with their tutors. 88% considered that their placement was active. The overall evaluation of the placement by the students is 8 out of 10. Half believe that a month is too short a period and suggest that more time is offered as an optional placement. 98% consider that the Centre in which they were placed was sufficiently or very capable of teaching at the undergraduate level.
Placing medical students in Primary Care teams is an essential part of today's medical teaching and is feasible within the present health system. The relationship between the University and the general physicians who act as tutors is seen as the main obstacle that needs to be overcome.
