Abstract

Background: Objective: The objective of this study was to evaluate final-year medical students\' satisfaction with placement-based training in obstetrics and gynaecology during their placement at various hospitals across the twin cities.

Methods: Methods: The study was carried out between May 2011 and June 2012, at Islamic International Medical College Trust, Railway Teaching Hospital, Pakistan, including two other medical colleges in the twin city. All final-year medical students (n=99) were given a questionnaire to assess their satisfaction with clinical education and training in obstetrics and gynaecology during their placement at hospitals (named as A-C to maintain anonymity) across the twin city. Students were required to respond to each question on a 5-point Likert scale.

Results: Results: Overall satisfaction with clinical training in obstetrics and gynaecology was 54.97%. In hospital-A, the satisfaction of the medical students with teaching achieved scores of 64%. The approachability of teachers was the most highly scored overall. The satisfaction with assessment by teachers of three basic competencies including history taking, abdominal examination and pelvic examination was ranked at above 60% in two of the three hospitals. Access to IT facilities was available to medical students in all hospitals. Regarding individual hospitals, hospital-A obtained the highest score with, 60-68% satisfaction in 4 areas, and approximately 40-58% 4 categories (no negative scores). Hospital-B also scored highly, achieving 63%. The poorest scores were from hospital-C, which scored negatively in five of the ten areas, and achieved scores less than 25% in three other areas.

Conclusions: Conclusion: The study shows that the teaching is not standardized in all the hospitals across the region. The agenda of the university does not always meet the agenda of the different health professionals in the trusts. A student-centered guideline about training in obstetrics and gynaecology should be formulated.

Key words: Key words: Teaching components in Gynae/Obs, Student satisfaction, placement-based training.
