A multicenter study: how do medical students perceive clinical learning climate?

Conclusion The results of this study drew attention to certain aspects of the clinical learning climate in medical schools. Clinical teacher/instructor/supervisor, clinical training programs, students' interactions in clinical settings, self-realization, mood, students' intrinsic motivation, and institutional commitment are important components of the clinical learning climate. For this reason, the aforementioned components should be taken into consideration in studies aiming to improve clinical learning climate. PMID: 28165976 [PubMed - in process]

Hey, all. Please share your opinions or thoughts to help me process the differences between my top two programs. The main difference that I care about right now (let's assume all else is equal) is the loading of the material. The 1st program has 8 terms of 20, 21, 13, 21, 18, 15, 16, and 9 credits, respectively. The 2nd program has 9 terms of 15, 15, 15, 15, 14, 14, 13, 9, and 9 credits, respectively. Looking at the first, I feel a bit nauseous and terrified. But, on the other... Front-Loaded Program v Normal One

Beyond its effects on the body, medical care can be a balm for the mind. Extensive treatment can feel like a promise that doctors have done everything possible. But that perceived security can come at a high price. As health costs soar, patients are emptying their pockets for care that may not make them healthier, research suggests. Last year, a 5,000-person trial showed that for patients with chronic but stable heart disease, surgical procedures such as stenting and bypass did not reduce the risk of heart attack or death more than lifestyle interventions and medication. Even patients with extensive damage did not, on aver...

Adult degenerative scoliosis is a specific type of adult scoliosis that refers to a structural curve that develops after skeletal maturity in a previously normal spine. The pathogenesis of adult degenerative scoliosis has at its foundation the same starting point of degenerative spine disease na...

Conclusions: To learn observational skills, students, facilitated by an experienced teacher, need to take the lead in their own learning process. This might imply a need for additional training for teachers. A realistic context is a precondition for learning; it might be necessary to increase possibilities for observations in clinical contexts or to invest in training for (simulated) patients as participants in education. Further research is needed to test the applicability of the design principles and a proto-theory for other professionals with a focus on observation and analysis of movements.

Abstract The prevalence of dementia and other age-associated cognitive disorders is steadily increasing worldwide. With no cure after diagnosis, successful treatment likely requires maximum adherence to preventative countermeasures. Many potential risk factors are modifiable through exercise. Specifically, mounting evidence suggests that long-term resistance training (RT) can help maintain cognitive abilities with aging and have additional benefits to overall brain health. Physical therapists are uniquely positioned to administer such clinical interventions designed to slow disease progression. However, a neurosci...

CONCLUSIONS: Six sessions of a talus mobilization-based intervention in healthy community-dwelling older adults found that the greatest mobility gain in terms of the weight-bearing ankle dorsiflexion range of motion is produced after the first session. Additional sessions produce smaller improvements with a slight upward trend. Importantly, the restoration of joint mobility is enhanced over time after the end of the intervention.
