Course Objectives from Ilios (continued)

21) Take responsibility for your own education

22) Read critically , evaluate and assess information about disorders of RS

23) Search efficiently for high quality relevant info about disorders of the RS

Review of Objectives:

Objectives 5 and 6 are redundant

Objective 11 seems too broad

Objective 12 is vague

Objectives 20 , 21 and 23 are not specific to this course but seem reasonable

There are several typos

# 23 is mislabeled as 22 and always paired with 22 – “22,22”

Mapping Geisel to the LCME Content Emphases

ED-10. The curriculum of a medical education program must include behavioral and socioeconomic subjects in addition to basic science and clinical disciplines.

ED-11. The curriculum of a medical education program must include content from the biomedical sciences that supports students' mastery of the contemporary scientific knowledge, concepts, and methods fundamental to acquiring and applying science to the health of individuals and populations and to the contemporary practice of medicine.

ED-12. The curriculum of a medical education program should include laboratory or other practical opportunities for the direct application of the scientific method, accurate observation of biomedical phenomena, and critical analysis of data.

ED-13. The curriculum of a medical education program must cover all organ systems, and include the important aspects of preventive, acute, chronic, continuing, rehabilitative, and end-of-life care.

ED-14. The curriculum of a medical education program must include clinical experience in primary care.

Course learning objectives course learning opportunities learning assessments for students

ED-15. The curriculum of a medical education program must prepare students to enter any field of graduate medical education and include content and clinical experiences related to each phase of the human life cycle that will prepare students to recognize wellness, determinants of health, and opportunities for health promotion; recognize and interpret symptoms and signs of disease; develop differential diagnoses and treatment plans; and assist patients in addressing health-related issues involving all organ systems.

ED-16. The clinical experiences provided to medical students by a medical education program must utilize both outpatient and inpatient settings.

ED-17. Educational opportunities must be available in a medical education program in multidisciplinary content areas (e.g., emergency medicine, geriatrics) and in the disciplines that support general medical practice (e.g., diagnostic imaging, clinical pathology).

ED-17-A. The curriculum of a medical education program must introduce medical students to the basic scientific and ethical principles of clinical and translational research, including the ways in which such research is conducted, evaluated, explained to patients, and applied to patient care.

ED-18. The curriculum of a medical education program must include elective opportunities to supplement required courses and clerkships (or, in Canada, clerkship rotations).

ED-19. The curriculum of a medical education program must include specific instruction in communication skills as they relate to physician responsibilities, including communication with patients and their families, colleagues, and other health professionals.

ED-19-A. The core curriculum of a medical education program must prepare medical students to function collaboratively on health care teams that include health professionals from other disciplines as they provide coordinated services to patients. These curricular experiences include practitioners and/or students from other health professions.

ED-20. The curriculum of a medical education program must prepare medical students for their role in addressing the medical consequences of common societal problems (e.g., provide instruction in the diagnosis, prevention, appropriate reporting, and treatment of violence and abuse).

ED-21. The faculty and medical students of a medical education program must demonstrate an understanding of the manner in which people of diverse cultures and belief systems perceive health and illness and respond to various symptoms, diseases, and treatments.

ED-22. Medical students in a medical education program must learn to recognize and appropriately address gender and cultural biases in themselves, in others, and in the process of health care delivery.

ED-23. A medical education program must include instruction in medical ethics and human values and require its medical students to exhibit scrupulous ethical principles in caring for patients and in relating to patients' families and to others involved in patient care.

In sum,

There are minor typos to be fixed

Objective 11 is too broad

The objectives do a nice job of covering the NBME curriculum and LCME emphases but there are a few areas that could be improved (yellow boxes with “?”

NBME topics: metabolic, systemic disorders

and “protective systems ( bacterial biome?)

LCME topics:

diversity

gender and cultural biases

translational research

observation/measurement of biophenomena

rehab medicine

Results from recent student course reviews

Results from recent student course reviews

Data from 2012-2013 evaluations:

Strongest areas:

  • “Overall usefulness of reading Text(s).” 3.95

  • “How well this course provided me with a useful and appropriate introduction to this field of discipline.” 3.85

  • “Overall clarity of the learning objectives for the entire course and for each individual learning session.” 3.81

    Among the questions asked on the course review pertaining to the “usefulness” of course elements, none scored below a 3.12.

    All faculty were rated at a 3.26 or higher, with 19 of 28 lecturers receiving a score of 3.70 or higher.


Results from recent student course reviews1

Results from recent student course reviews

Representative comments (strengths):

  • Many students commented on the strength and quality of the lecturers.

  • “The course focused on principals that I will probably retain rather than memorizing facts that I definitely won’t.”

  • “TBL was helpful for emphasizing key points.”

  • “I also really appreciated the books and the correlation between the book chapters and what was taught.”


Results from recent student course reviews2

Results from recent student course reviews

Representative comments (weaknesses):

  • Several students commented that lecture notes should be given for every lecture in order to more clearly communicate important points and remedy the incongruence between lectures and the textbook.

  • “I think there was a lot of ambiguity in what we needed to know, despite the fact that we were supposed to be using our textbook as a guide.”

  • The number of TBL cases was overwhelming early on in the conceptually heavy portion of the course

  • Some students felt that greater coordination between clinician lecturers and pathologist lecturers would increase the clarity and effectiveness of their lectures.

    • “Combining multiple topics into one session, or having multiple speakers at one lecture, sometimes felt overwhelming. The flow of these sessions should be practiced.”
