Medicine I - MEDN 512 (2013)

Introduction
The clinical attachment involves 8 weeks period spent in the clinical units and associated outpatient
services of The King Abdulaziz Medical City.
The emphasis is on learning through involvement in patient care and the clinical activities of the units to
which you are attached.
The specific attachments provide the opportunities for practical experience and to develop clinical
reasoning skills in a number of different areas. No attempt is being made to cover all the major areas of
the block are part of a continuum of clinical experience building on knowledge gained in Years 1 & 2 and
extending through Years 3 and 4 to Internship. As far as possible there will be integration between
inpatient & outpatient, Medical, organ imaging, other diagnostic services and other disciplines.
The block book will give an overview of Medicine specialty objectives and the different themes which are:
Basic Clinical Sciences (PBL cases and Lectures), Patients Doctor Theme (including different Clinical
attachments, Community Doctor Theme, Personal Professional Development, and Evidence Based
Medicine. Furthermore, it includes the process of conducting different themes, timetables, assessment,
and different forms used in Medicine block.
Students by the end of their rotation should have successfully fulfilled these objectives. In the course of
MEDN 512 Block, 6 to 7 students will rotate every 8 working days.
Each student should rotate in:

General Medicine (Clinical Teaching Units-CTU)

Nephrology

GI/Hepatology

Pulmonary

Emergency medicine rotation is longitudinal throughout the block once a week.


The main emphasis of this phase is on practical clinical training in the various fields of medicine
including, but not limited to, the specialties of ambulatory/emergency medicine, gi/hepatology,
pulmonary and nephrology. Students are exposed to the environment they are going to work in after
graduation. Care should be taken to ensure that the training encompasses all the levels of health care: primary,
secondary as well as tertiary and not be limited to bedside teaching alone.
Students are required to function as sub-interns and take limited responsibility in the management of
patients and when they are on call. In this capacity, they are expected to:
1.

Interview, examine and clerk patients;

2.

Attend and present daily morning report;

3.

Discuss cases with colleagues and senior staff;

4.

Counsel and health educate patients and their families and follow them up; and

5.

Participate in rounds, clinics, and procedures.

They, therefore, should maintain good relationship with patients and their families, deal with them
humanely and counsel them effectively to help them take the right decisions on the management of their
problems and secure their consent taking into account their economic and social abilities.
Students should comply with the hospital system regarding dress code, attendance, peer and teamwork
and should exhibit utmost ethical and responsible behavior in their relationship with professional,
technical and administrative staff. They should work effectively and harmoniously with all members of
the health team.

Medicine I - MEDN 512 (2013)

Structured Teaching
While practical clinical experience forms the substrate for learning in the MED-UCE, a
structured teaching program extends throughout this part of the course. This includes problem
based learning tutorials, lectures and other tutorials and learning modules / seminars in the
various themes. Although individual students undertake a variety of different clinical
attachments, these structured teaching sessions will provide a framework for student learning.
The timetables would provide
Lectures, PBLs and other sessions like:

Weekly two PBL sessions and lectures.

Community-Doctor and Personal and Professional Development Theme sessions are held
weekly (i.e. usually alternating fortnightly sessions).

A Patient-Doctor Theme tutorial is held weekly. This session is intended to be focused on


examination skills and the integration of these skills into formulating diagnostic hypotheses
and management plans. The tutorials also provide you with an opportunity to nominate
your own clinical topics for discussion and review with your tutor.

Regular EBM sessions require you to prepare and present evidence about a clinical question
to your assigned group.

Case discussions in ward rounds and PDT


Case discussions associated with ward rounds or bedside teaching will emphasize the clinical
reasoning processes which show how a clinician arrived at a particular diagnostic or treatment
decision. The difference between this approach and the more traditional case presentation is
that this approach requires clinical teachers to unpack their clinical thinking. It helps develop
an understanding of how clinical decisions are made.
Case discussions will cover
-

Which items are / were important in the patients presenting history, and why?

What are / were the alternative diagnoses?

On what basis are / were alternatives accepted or rejected?

What are the factors that must be considered when making decisions regarding treatment?

Students will be encouraged to apply their existing knowledge from Years 1 and 2, and to
identify and utilize additional resources which can help them to better understand their
patients problems.

Medicine I - MEDN 512 (2013)

Problem Based Learning (PBL)


During the block, students will have opportunities to engage in problem-based learning at a
higher level than in Years 1 and 2. There is a greater emphasis on diagnosis and management
rather than basic mechanisms. You have the same opportunity to undertake active, cooperative
learning in small groups and pursue a self-directed search for information and understanding
under the guidance of your clinical tutors. However, the PBL tutorials are less central than in
Years 1 and 2 because
-

The opportunities to learn from real patients now take first place and PBL becomes
secondary.

The weeks learning is no longer built around the PBL case of the week. Each of the 8 core
problems will be presented within the block.

The time allocated for PBL is 50% less than in the first two years

Your clinical tutors may be less familiar with the PBL process and also less involved (in
the sense that they no longer attend a weekly briefing meeting about the same problem of
the week and they will have relatively less time to prepare and think about the problem.)

How does it work?


In every PBL week, one student is responsible for preparing and facilitating two PBL tutorials.
Designing the tutorials engages you in the process of reasoning about the case assigned to you
as the group facilitator. The benefit of your preparation is passed on to your PBL group in the
form of a clinical case outline. You use the outline to promote a way of thinking about the case
in much the same way as your tutors have used the tutor guides in Years 1 and 2.

The Clinical Reasoning Guide


PBL in Phase 3 will have fourteen steps of Clinical Reasoning (CR), which will be covered in
two sessions. These steps are completely different from the eleven steps of PBL in the first two
years. Based on a student-centered approach to learning, different PBLs will be assigned to
students and these students will be responsible to take a leading role of facilitating both the
sessions of the PBL. A tutor will, however, be present in the second session to assist the process.
PBL in Phase 3 lays more emphasis on the process of clinical reasoning leading to formulation
of a diagnosis and planning of management. The CR steps in the first session ends with the
derivation of learning topics. The second session has strong focus on management. A tutor will
be available in the second session to wrap up the case and to extend the discussion from the
points arising in the last step.

The paragraphs below provide general questions, which a student facilitator can use to facilitate
the CR steps. Groups can respond in different ways to a given problem and these differences
can be reduced if the CR steps are followed in a similar fashion in all the groups. These
paragraphs help to make the CR steps clear so that they may be easily followed.

CR steps for First Session:

The students role


During each two-week clinical attachment, you are expected to have a real role in the activities
of the unit/division with defined tasks to perform but without direct responsibility for patient
care. Specifically it is intended that students on an inpatient attachment will:

Clerk and follow the course of two or three patients including investigation and
management.

Learn to perform basic clinical procedures under supervision e.g., venepuncture,


peripheral cannula insertion, arterial puncture, needle paracentesis.

Be involved in planning for care and follow-up in the clinic following discharge from
hospital.

Be involved in communicating information to patients and relatives (though not as the


sole provider of information).

Attend and participate in clinical unit meetings, ward rounds, and case presentations
where possible.

Student clinical attachment Checklist


1. Orientation to the attachment
At the beginning of each two-week period, you should meet with your clinical supervisor
who will provide a general orientation to the unit.
2. Clarify the major objectives of the attachment
It is important that both you and your clinical supervisor understand the expectations of the
student during the attachment, which limits on student involvement, and responsibility for
care is clearly set. Your supervisor will speak with you about the time requirements that you
will be expected to fulfil.
1. Set a date for first supervisor - student discussion
2. At the end of the attachment - complete assessments

The student must complete the student section of the Integrated Clinical Attachment
(ICA) form, and then take the assessment form to your supervisor who will complete it
and discuss your progress with you

The supervisor will forward the report to Academic Affairs office (Mail Code: 3155,
ext. 51067)

Provide your supervisor / Department of Medical Education clinical school with


feedback about your attachment

The supervisors role


The supervisor is essential to the proper functioning of the clinical attachment in ensuring
continuity of supervision and reliability of assessment.
The supervisor should be a clinician responsible for few students in a two-week period. They
should interact with students regularly on ward rounds, in clinics. In addition they are expected
to meet with each student weekly (or at least fortnightly) for 30mins to discuss a patient known
to the student. One-to-one discussion will provide a better opportunity to explore strengths and
weaknesses, progress and provide more meaningful formative assessment than usually occurs
in a working clinical setting. The topic and content of these discussions will be set by the
supervisor and the focus could include diagnostic and management issues.
Within individual clinical attachments, other clinicians, registrars, resident staff, and other
paramedical staff will play a role in contributing to the students learning and experience and
are encouraged to contribute to the supervisors assessment and evaluation of the students
performance.

UCE Clinical Supervisor assessment form


The major aims of this form are to encourage students to self-assess and plan their own learning
in a clinical environment and for supervisors to inform students about progress of clinical and
professional skills. Therefore, the feedback form has components for both the student and the
supervisor to complete.
Prior to the beginning of each attachment, the student should organise an initial meeting with
their new supervisor in order to develop a learning plan and to discuss arrangements for that
attachment. The student should take a photocopy of feedback form/s from their previous
clinical attachment/s to help identify any clinical and professional skills that may need
additional attention during the next rotation. These forms are intended to provide a continuing
record of progress throughout the UCE.
The student should complete the self-assessment section on both pages of the form PRIOR to
meeting with their supervisor. The supervisor will then complete the relevant corresponding
sections and discuss their feedback with the student. A copy of the integrated clinical
attachment feedback form is provided at the back of this handbook.
At the end of each rotation, each student is required to submit a completed Clinical supervisor
assessment form the assessment unit. Ensuring completion of the form and its forwarding is the
responsibility of the individual student. The student should retain one copy of the form in his or
her portfolio and another copy will be held in the clinical school.
You have already acquired skills in history taking and physical examination, as well as good
background knowledge, based on the seventy clinical problems you studied in depth in Years 1
and 2. However, you have not yet begun to learn the skills required for effective patient care.
During the UCE, your practical skills will grow progressively and this will be taken into
account when assessing your performance during an attachment.
The emphasis in the UCE will be on patient-centred learning in the clinical context with further
development of clinical reasoning skills along with knowledge of Medicine. You are not
expected to be expert in every area and, obviously, no student can cover every clinical specialty.
Rather it is intended that all clinical attachments should emphasise generic skills of patient care
as well as the specific knowledge related to a particular discipline.

Guidelines to the task of the medical students during clinical


attachments
The objectives of the attachment of the medical students to the Clinical Attachments are:

To have insight into the daily care of the patient

To consolidate and apply the theoretical knowledge

To develop the clinical acumen and to prepare the student to be a responsible physician.

To achieve these goals it is important to observe the following:


1. The medical student should be an active member of the team. He rounds with them and
attends assigned clinics and O.R.
2. The student should be quizzed about her theoretical knowledge to stimulate her to read.
She should be asked to examine certain cases, stressing on the right technique.
Concentration should be on common cases and on patients who can give coherent
history and have good physical signs and are fit to be examined. When the student
finishes her attachment, she should be able to perform proper general examination.
3. The student should be provided with a selected case for history taking, physical
examination, provisional diagnosis and planning the investigations and following up
daily till charge.
4. The student should be given a homework for instance reviewing certain topics related to
cases seen in the wards and presenting it to the team in 5-10 minutes.
5. The student should be under the supervision of the consultant, assistant consultant, and
the senior resident who monitor the students punctuality and her progress and give her
a feedback. They should also be able to detect the gaps in the knowledge and clinical
performance of the student and do their best to fill them up. Finally they should be able
to assess her at the end of her attachment.

Assessment
Progressive assessment integrated with student activities, and a focus on the interaction between student
and supervisor are important features of the assessment program.
Students are encouraged to develop their ability to evaluate their own progress and learning needs in
preparation for a lifetime of learning in professional practice.
Assessment is both formative and summative

Formative assessment provides the opportunity for feedback to be given to the student in a
practice situation without the level of performance being recorded.

Summative assessment contributes to decisions passing the block

The assessment would consist of:

Continues Assessment: It constitutes 40% of the total mark.

Written Examination in the form of best single answer: 15% of the total mark.

Portfolio assessment: 25% of the total mark.

Final Assessment: It constitutes 60% of the total mark.

Basic and Clinical Sciences Theme (BCS)


The formal component of the Basic and Clinical Sciences Theme is covered in structured
teaching sessions, all of which are delivered at the clinical schools.
A basic syllabus of topic areas has been prepared. Each topic is linked to a clinical presentation
and the important clinical conditions which may cause such a presentation. The list takes into
account the curriculum already covered in Years 1 and 2. The syllabus serves to ensure
standardisation across the clinical schools for both teachers and students. Included in the
syllabus is the requirement to present a number of basic science updates in preclinical
disciplines as well as the incorporation of relevant paraclinical disciplines in sessions on clinical
topics.

Some topics are presented as lectures and interactive sessions (2-3 hours /week).

Some topics are presented as problem-based learning tutorials (2 x 1.5 hours/ week).

There are 8 PBL topics to be covered in the 9 weeks; students are in groups of 6-10 and with one
student acting as the tutor in each rotation.
The topic lists are provided in the following pages, the section on PBL, and are published on the
Web, together with a template for each problem-based learning tutorial. The student-tutor for
each week works through the template to develop a tutor plan for the tutorial. The emphasis in
PBL in Year 3 shifts towards diagnosis and management, so the clinical tutor-facilitator should
be a clinician with sufficient content knowledge to guide the discussion effectively and provide
expert input where necessary.

Lectures, Seminars & Interactive Sessions


Lectures are not intended to be the main method of defining the curriculum in the KSAU-HS.
Rather, the lectures and problem-based learning tutorials together will provide a framework for
knowledge that should be acquired by the end of the UCE.
Lectures have been retained as a regular component of the program because of their potential
value to enhance student learning or to stimulate their interest in four general ways:

by providing an introduction to an important topic

by providing a broad context or generalising a concept

by clarifying material identified by teachers or students as difficult

by inspiring them with a novel or original account of a subject

The topics for the sessions to be given in Year 3 have been chosen with these principles in mind,
after wide consultation.

The Patient and Doctor Theme (Pt-Dr)


Aims
The aims of the Patient Doctor Theme are largely covered by the clinical attachments, which
occupy about 50% of the programmed week. Students develop their knowledge, skills and
clinical reasoning abilities in a practical setting. They are expected to assume a real though
limited role in the activities of their home unit, with defined tasks to perform but without
direct responsibility for patient care.
By the end of the Medicine block, students should be able to:

Obtain an accurate history from an adult patient and other relevant sources such as
family members.

Perform a competent physical examination and elicit relevant physical signs.

Select and interpret basic investigations.

Integrate a history, physical examination and basic investigations into an appropriate


clinical summary, for written or oral presentation.

Function as a member of a clinical team.

Recognize common emergency situations and demonstrate knowledge of an


appropriate response to each.

Communicate information to patients and families though not as the sole provider of
that information.

Demonstrate an understanding of the long-term management of common chronic


conditions that require ongoing care and of the range of resources available for this
care.

Core Objectives and Competence levels


A general checklist of competencies in clinical diagnosis and procedures for Years 3 and 4 are
available online. It has been posted on the Web site from the Year 3 menu, via the "MedicinePatient & Doctor" link. This document is not prescriptive; it provides guidance to supervisors
who are developing objectives for students wishing to know the level of competence expected
of them. It is expected that the design of particular clinical attachments will vary according to
the nature of different clinical services.

Medicine I - MEDN 512 (2013)

Patient Doctor Session


(Two hour per week)
This is a regular weekly, bedside tutorial for small groups of students. It may take the form of a
review of a particular set of clinical skills or a clinical topic nominated by students. The
emphasis in these tutorials is on developing and progressing each students skills in physical
examination (particularly the detection of abnormal physical signs), integrating these findings
into a clinical hypothesis and considering these in the overall context of the patient.
Each student will be required to undertake a Formative Assessment of their clinical examination
skills (in the form of a directed examination of one particular system or area in a patient) by
their Pt-Dr tutor(s). Each student will be expected to perform an examination on one patient
with signs related a medical condition. This is seen as a way of ensuring that the clinical
examination skills of each student continues to develop and improve during the clinical years.
Assessment
Assessment is progressive. Formative assessment and feedback to students on a regular basis is
the most important element of the assessment process.
The components of the Patient-Doctor Theme assessment are:
1) Assessment forms for each clinical attachment
2) Mini-CEX and CBD
3) OSCE in the Final examination
4) Formative Assessments during Patient Doctor Themes

relationship of the individual characteristics of both patient and doctor

The ability to listen and to identify issues of concern to patients, families and carers and to
respond to those concerns, using whatever means are necessary for effective communication

The ability to elicit and interpret clinical symptoms and signs by interviewing and examining
patients systematically and with sensitivity and to use this information to develop a problem list
and list of differential diagnoses

The Community and Doctor Theme (CDT)


In addition to encouraging a broader community perspective to the care of patients in the
Clinical years and PBL cases, the Community & Doctor Theme occupies two hours per fortnight
of the structured teaching program, alternating with PPD.
The program is intended to broaden and enrich your thinking about the clinical experiences you
will have during the UCE, and it has been designed to provide opportunities to make links with
these, and with the PBL activities, which will continue during the UCE. It is important that you
search for, and strengthen these links for yourselves, rather than keeping the CDT Theme in a
separate intellectual compartment. This time particularly allows students the opportunity to
reflect, discuss and debate issues that impinge on the health and healthcare of people. Many of
the issues that are up for debate in this part of the course are complex and have no ready-made
solutions. They reflect the complex system within which we live, work, and are often
controversial in nature.

CDT Theme Goals


Graduates of KSAU-HS will be able to:
1. Evaluate the distribution of & risk factors for disease & injury & understand how to use
disease & injury prevention practices in the care of individual patients & communities. (CDT
Essential Questions 1-3)
2. Make evidence-based, ethical and economically responsible decisions about the most
appropriate management of health problems in individuals and in communities. (CDT
Essential Questions 4,5)
3. Identify the economic, psychological, occupational & socio-cultural factors that contribute to
the development and/or continuation of poor health & explain how it impacts on
individuals & communities. (CDT Essential Questions 6,7)
4. Evaluate the economic, political, social and legal factors which determine the way that
individuals and communities respond to health problems and describe how public and
population health strategies are systematically planned & implemented. (CDT Essential
Question 8)

Community & Doctor Timetable


The Community and Doctor Theme Sessions will alternate with the PPD sessions as per the
timetable.
Most sessions are led by students working in pairs within your CDT tutorial group. A faculty
tutor will be allocated to your group and will be available to guide you in your learning.

Course Structure
At the beginning of the block, students will be assigned to do CDT or PPD as a summative or
formative which will be added to the portfolio. Topic assignment will be released at the
beginning of each block during the UCE orientation period of your group.
For each session, each student in the pair is to select one of the strategies listed and compare this
strategy to that of their partner. When comparing strategies it is important to take account of such
considerations as evidence supporting the effectiveness of the strategy, impact of the strategy on
the health system and other public resources, and potential benefits and harms of the strategy.
Also, note that in some cases the most effective response to the problem may involve a
combination of strategies rather than deciding that one strategy is superior to the other. There is
scope in some of the sessions for a student to choose their own strategy, but this should be
discussed with the tutor beforehand.

Instructions
1. Read the background information based on questions one to three of the eight essential
question framework. Further information about these three points is available from the
references and web links listed in the resources section. You may wish to summarize this
information briefly at the beginning of the presentation for the other members of your
tutorial group; however, this material should not be the main focus of your presentation.
2. Choose one of the management strategies listed. Note that each student in the pair must
choose a different strategy.
3. Group leaders have to submit a draft presentation of their assigned topic to their tutor a
week prior to the session.
4. For the strategy you have chosen, plan the rest of the session based on discussion of the pros
and cons of the strategy according to the assessment criteria. There are a number of
references and links in the resources section that will guide your session presentation. Note
that one of the assessment criteria involves an evaluation of the evidence behind your
strategy and therefore it is essential to locate a relevant Cochrane review or other
information that provides evidence for or against the strategy.
5. Lead the tutorial session with your partner
6. Submit a final report of your presentation of at-least 500 words to your CDT tutor at most
two weeks after the session and obtain his feedback in the related assessment form. (Note
that this is a compulsory part of your presentation and is included in the assessment
form).
7. Record a copy of the report and completed assessment form in your portfolio. Submit a
copy of these documents to the Assessment Committee in Medical Education if it is a
summative assignment.
A tutor will be with your group for this session and will generally be someone who has a
particular interest in community medicine. Your tutor is there to help facilitate your sessions
and as a resource person to assist you in preparing to lead these sessions.
If there are two groups taking CDT sessions concurrently on the same topic then the last thirty
minutes of the activity will be a plenary session where the two groups will sit together and
wrap up the session.

Assessment
Assessment will be formative for the first time a student leads the group and summative on the
second occasion when it occurs. If a student happens to lead a group only once then that occasion will
be taken into account for summative assessment. There are also a proportion of CDT items in the
final written examination.
Summative assessment of your competence in the CDT Theme in the UCEs will be limited to:
1) The quality of the CDT content of your second performance as a student leader, as judged by
your mastery of the material you present for the group to work through.
2) A proportion of items in the final written assessment.
All students are required to obtain a feedback on the outline/ report and the leading of the
tutorial session from the tutor in the related assessment form. A copy of the report and
completed assessment form should be filed in the portfolio. Another copy of these documents
should be submitted to the Assessment Committee in Medical Education if it is a summative
assignment.

Marking criteria for session presentations


The assessor will mark each criterion on the related assessment form and give further comments and
feedback on the marking sheet based on the following criteria:
1.

Provides a description of scenario and population-level relationship to PBL

2.

Provides a brief summary of the health problem and its distribution in the population

3.

Outlines current practice

4.

Defines one potential strategy for addressing the problem (each student defines one strategy as per
the web outline)

5.

Appraises the evidence for efficacy include harms and benefits (each student appraises the
evidence for their strategy)

6.

Discusses how this would impact on the health system & consider resource implications (each
student to consider their own)

7.

Identifies key stakeholders who would be affected by the implementation of each strategy & discusses
potential roles for each stakeholder (this may be done jointly or separately depending on the problem)

8.

Leads group discussion comparing their strategy with that of student partner

9.

Makes recommendations based on findings (NB: Public health problem solving may adopt more
than one strategy if appropriate)

10. Suggests areas for further research


11. Submits and obtains feedback on tutorial outline (of approx 200 words) from tutor at least 1 week
prior to session
12. Incorporates tutor feedback into final tutorial session

Note: This assessment relates primarily to competence in Community & Doctor Theme
content, rather than the process of interacting with the group.

The Personal and Professional Development Theme (PPD)


Overall Aims of PPD Theme
1. Commitment to compassionate, ethical professional behaviour
2. The ability to work cooperatively as a member of a team accepting and providing leadership
as appropriate
3. Recognition of the inevitability of decision making in circumstances of uncertainty and the
capacity to make rational and sensitive decisions based on the best available evidence
4. The ability to recognise his or her personal physical and emotional needs and responses to
stress and openness to assistance in times of need.
5. Ongoing commitment to the advancement of learning within the medical community.
6. Commitment to maintaining professional standards and obligations
7. Commitment to improving the quality and safety of health care

Aims of the PPD Theme


The PPD theme during the Integrated Clinical Attachments aims to consolidate those skills learnt in
earlier years, using reflection, experience and knowledge gained from working in a clinical setting.
1. Demonstrate the ability to observe, discuss and reflect on individual experiences, which occur in
clinical practice, particularly professional behaviour and ethical issues.
These should include:

learning about the impact of illness from patients themselves


understanding the practical and emotional impact of the health team upon illness and illness
behaviour
remaining open to ideas which may not be ones own cultural or scientific heritage
respecting the patients right to autonomy
setting limits to the professional relationship

2. Demonstrate understanding of the boundaries of the role of the student doctor within the hospital,
and that of other members of the team, and familiarity with:

the ward environment


other hospital environments e.g. the laboratories, physiotherapy, occupational therapy,
radiology, pharmacy and other departments
the important role played by other health professionals
the role of ambulatory care
the interrelationship between hospital and community
the intricacies of team work within a clinical setting

3. Demonstrate the ability to recognise and reflect on the challenges of collaborative decision making in
the face of uncertainty, taking account of the patients preferences and those of their families.
These may include:

the effect of illness or pain on the making of balanced decisions


personal and emotional difficulties for individuals
difficulties for family groups
limitations of knowledge
personal and emotional difficulties experienced by members of the clinical team
language and cultural difficulties for patients, families and health team members
financial constraints, both at a personal and at a wider level

2013 College of Medicine Female Branch, KSAU-HS

amril@ksau-hs.edu.sa

44

Medicine I - MEDN 512 (2013)

4. Demonstrate understanding of the importance of recognising individual responses to stress and the
response of other team members, knowing how and where to go for help:

time management
Interpersonal conflict
fatigue
lack of confidence
limitations on knowledge
family or personal difficulties
financial pressures
pressures of assessment

5. Continue a strong commitment towards the advancement of learning, including practical education
and knowledge gained from the observation of others.

regular attendance and active participation in ward rounds, teaching and other sessions
completion of assigned tasks
regular contribution towards group learning
learning from observing how others work
acquiring practical skills

6. Understand the ethical principles and apply them in the clinical setting.
This includes understanding the main elements in the following:

consent
privacy and confidentiality
partnerships with patents and carers
how risk information is communicated to patients and carers

7. Understand that health care is risky and the role of complexity plays in adverse events.
This entails that students will observe and understand the following:
The role of complexity in health service delivery
The extent of adverse events in the health care system
The methods used to minimise errors and improve quality

8. Students will also be required to apply and consolidate skills in the organisation and management of
time and of Information
These include:

factual knowledge
clinical record keeping
security and confidentiality of information
information retrieval within the hospital system
note-taking for learning purposes
skills in presentation of information

Resources
The PPD format requires one coordinator and a number of tutors depending on the size of the student
cohort. The coordinator allocates students to a tutorial group. The nominated tutor acts as a facilitator
and resource person for the small group sessions. PPD Theme sessions alternate with Community Doctor Theme sessions.

Expectations during phase III


Students are expected to:
- attend all problem based learning sessions and tutorials
- report marked Unsatisfactory will be required to be revised and resubmitted. If the
resubmitted
report again gets an Unsatisfactory then it will be cumulated as
such in the summative score.
- attend all clinical rotations (Recorded by the supervisor)
- participate in all required formative assessments

PPD Assessment
Students are encouraged to consider and reflect upon the PPD Aims in the clinical attachments,
and to recognise these areas during their clinical attachments.
The following will influence the student assessment PPD theme:
Attend all sessions (separate arrangements are made for students on rural attachments)
Demonstrate ethical and professional behavior
Prepare a written case report of an ethical dilemma observed in the hospital
Prepare and lead discussion on an assigned topic
Prepare a two-page summary of the session
Submit a portfolio as outlined below.

Specific PPD requirements

Assessment of the student's competence in the PPD tutorials


Students are judged in their performance as a student leader on the following criteria:

Demonstrated understanding of the topic

The quality of the presentation and facilitation.

The quality of the one or two page handout submitted on the day.

Students will need to demonstrate a familiarity with the pre reading material and the ethical
and professional concepts under discussion. Active participation as a non-leader is also
required. Students should refer to the ethical framework outlined later in this document as one
means of approaching group discussions.
Discussions relevant to the cases discussed in the structured sessions with clinical supervisors
Students should demonstrate the capacity to recognise and discuss ethical issues as they arise
during their attachments.

What every student needs to do for PPD Theme sessions


Check in two weeks in advance the sessions that you will be leading for assessment.
Plan and select key resources
Discuss the topic with your PPD tutor and clinical supervisor (if appropriate), the
nominated resource person or other experts know for their knowledge /interest in the
area.
Before each PPD session check the Theme session outline and read any reading set down for
the topic and note the aims of the session
You should know which topic you would be responsible for leading and the time. You
should begin by browsing the references and web material for these sessions and start to
plan ahead. Many sessions will involve a clinical scenario and time should be left to
interview patients and other appropriate people who may be a resource. This should not be
left to the last minute.
Read the selected references. Be discerning in what you read depending on the time
available and your interest in the topic. You do not have to read everything on the topic.
Talk to the relevant patient/s, resource people and the PPD tutor about the issues for this
topic.
Complete a report of at-least 500 words answering the core questions for this topic, which
are outlined in this document. A draft of this report should be handed and discussed with
the tutor a week before the session.
Based on reading and discussion with others leaders should generate a list of discussion
questions and/or activities for their group, which addresses some of the main issues of this
topic including the ethical principles being espoused. They should avoid didactic
presentations. The challenge is to focus on ethical, personal and professional aspects of the
topic rather than on individuals and their clinical circumstances. Try to cover the main
issues through debate and discussion, encouraging participants to relate the ethical issues to
their own observations in the hospital or their own clinical and personal experiences.
Handle the assessment form which is available on line to the PPD tutor for filling and
immediate feedback. This form should be immediately forwarded to Academic Affairs
office (Layla, mail code: 3155, ext: 51067).
Record a copy of the report and in your portfolio.

Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) and Presentations of Evidence


Abstracted from the Research Literature for the Solution (PEARLS)
Students will prepare and give a short, evidence-based presentation addressing a focused
clinical question raised by contact with a specific patient seen during third year. Preparation of
the presentation is facilitated by a series of 3 tutorials which the students attend in the
preceding 3 weeks. During these tutorials, students develop their presentations in 3 stages
corresponding to 6 broad topics:
Stage 1

1. developing a focused clinical question based on their patient.


2. developing a

Stage 2

search strategy.

3. honing the results of the search


4. extracting and appraising the information

Stage 3

5. applying the information to their particular patient


6. preparing the presentation and a handout

The PEARLS Tutorials


Students attend PEARLS tutorials for 3 weeks prior to their PEARLS presentation. The tutorials
follow an action learning model (McGill I, Beatty L. Action Learning. London: Kogan Page,
1995). Each tutorial is divided into segments according to the number of students. For example,
with 6 students and a 1-hour tutorial each student is allocated 10 minutes. During their
allocated 10 minutes, the student describes where they are up to and with what they would like
help. The rest of the group then provides assistance. The process is repeated for each student.
Each tutorial is facilitated by a tutor with clinical epidemiology skills provided by the Evidence
Based Medicine Resource Group (EBMRG).

The PEARLS Presentations


Each PEARLS presentation lasts 10 minutes with an additional 5 minutes for questions and
feedback. Students are not required to attend for presentations in which they are not directly
involved, however it is hoped that the pertinence of the topics and quality of the presentations
will be sufficient encouragement. In addition, the audience is asked to complete a brief feedback
form identifying the presenters strengths and areas for improvement. The presenter collects this
data and summarises it later writing a short report of the feedback and their response to it. Three
additional people are required for each PEARLS presentation: a content person (selected by the
student during their clinical attachment), and 2 clinical epidemiology people (rostered by the
clinical school and their EBM Coordinator).

A Real Example
Following is a description of an actual student PEARL. His interest is raised by a 48-year-old
man he admitted for wide excision of an early melanoma. He is interested in the rationale for
the recommended regime of regular follow-up. In the first tutorial, after discussion with the
other students and tutor, they decide to concentrate on the mans risk of developing a second
primary. This leads to the focused clinical question: What is the risk of developing a second
primary melanoma in people who have had a melanoma resected in the past? Subsequent
discussion covers the type of question he is asking (prognosis) and the appropriate study design
for answering that type of question. He is referred to an Evidence Based Medicine website
(http://www.cche.net/usersguides/main.asp) to review the Users Guides for search strategies
and critical appraisal of studies assessing prognosis. He develops a simple text-based search
and rapidly identifies a population-based cohort study of over 20,000 Swedish patients with a
history of resected melanoma reported in 1996.
In the second and third tutorials, discussions focus on critical appraisal, data extraction, and
finally, what he will present and how he will present it. He gives his presentation in the fourth
week with 10 slides and a copy of the abstract distributed to the audience. The take home
message is that the risk of a developing a new melanoma is about 10 times higher in people
who have already had one.
Feedback from the audience emphasizes the high quality of the selected study and his
presentation of it; the discussion revolves around what this relative risk means in absolute
terms to the man in question, with suggestions of how to calculate and describe this to the
patient. The generalisability to an Australian man of this study performed in Sweden is also
discussed.

A Brief Guide to Student PEARLS in Year 3


During third year, each student gives a single PEARLS presentation which is:
a 10 minute talk supported by visual aids and a 1 page summary
followed by 5 minutes of questions and feedback from the audience.
To complete this component of the course students must:
find a patient with a suitable problem 4 weeks before their PEARLS presentation
attend 3 x 60 minute tutorials in the 3 weeks prior to their PEARLS presentation
have a suitable clinician attend their PEARLS presentation
give a satisfactory PEARLS presentation
submit a short reflective report on the feedback from the presentation and their experience.

The PEARLS presentations are assessed:


Summatively by members of the evidence based medicine working group and
Formatively by students in the audience with rating forms included in the Student PEARLS
Guide.
PEARLS presentations and tutorials are scheduled by the Clinical Affairs office.

Phase III Student E-portfolio


The student e-portfolio is a longitudinal learning and assessment tool that extends across all
blocks in phase III. The portfolio is an electronic document that the student will develop on the
Blackboard system. It will be closely linked to a new mentorship program.
The student will receive continuous feedback and assessment from her mentor during prearranged progress meetings. Additionally, the student will submit a final electronic portfolio for
summative assessment at the end of phase III. The e-portfolio grade will be included in the
Medical Research II Block.
Please refer to the Student E-Portfolio Manual for details on portfolio objectives, requirements,
important dates and assessment details.

EVALUATION
This will be based on observation of the student's performance. The primary
purpose is to help students identify how much they have learned, and how much
they have yet to learn. A secondary purpose is to determine whether the student,
at the end of the clinical elective, has met minimum requirements of acceptable
performance or achieved excellence. When necessary, the supervisor will discuss
strengths or weaknesses with the student during the rotation. At the end of the
rotation the supervisor will complete the standard assessment form and forward it
(via the Medicine Coordinator) to the college of medicine.
There is also opportunity for the student to evaluate the clinical learning
experience. The college of medicine will be collecting information from you that
can guide future students seeking Clinical rotations and provide important
feedback to clinical supervisors about strengths and weaknesses of individual
Clinical rotations.

Form UCE 11:


Case Based Discussion (CBD)
- Continuation

Rationale: Case-Based Discussion (CBD) is part of the mandatory summative/formative


assessment tools within KSAU-HS framework for students competency. CBD is a tool to assess
clinical judgment, decision-making and the application of knowledge in relation to patient care. It
allows the students to apply clinical reasoning in their practice. This may include discussing
ethical and legal framework of practice and facilitate feedback in order to guide learning. It is not
focused on the ability to make a diagnosis. As an actual patient record is used, it also allows the
trainer to evaluate the quality of record keeping and presentation of the case. Passing this
evaluation is not the aim, performing it with immediate feedback and lessons learnt is the
ultimate goal. Therefore, this assessment should not be approached as if it was an examination.
Process: The student should be responsible for the conduction of the event. A minimum of two
CBD is needed per clinical block. The process should end with a structured discussion between
the student and supervisor:

The student must ensure that the supervisor is aware of patient details in order to offer
learning opportunities for discussion.

The supervisor discussed the case in depth with the student for 15-20 minutes.

An assessment form is completed by the supervisor who then provides immediate


feedback to the student for approximately 5 minutes.

The assessment form should be part of the students Portfolio.


Skills to be assessed:

Professional approach to patient

Data gathering and interpretation

Making diagnoses/decisions

Clinical management

Managing medical complexity

Working with colleagues and in teams

Community orientation

Maintaining an ethical approach.

Fitness to practice
Feedback: To maximize the educational impact of assessment on students performance, areas
that are particularly good as well as those where there is scope for improvement should be
discussed the student. Feedback should be give sensitively, in a suitable environment. Areas for
development should be identified, agreed and recorded on the assessment form.
Outcome of assessment: The outcome of the assessment is a global professional judgment of the
assessor that the student has completed the task to the standard expected at his level.

Mini Clinical Evaluation Exercises
(Mini-CEX) Continuation

Rationale: Mini-CEX is part of the mandatory summative/formative tools within KSAU-HS


framework for students competency. Students will have the opportunity to receive immediate
feedback on skills essential to provide good clinical care by observing an actual clinical
encounter. The Mini-CEX will reflect students performance doing clinical skills routinely
considered part of patient encounters. It is integrated in different aspects within the clinical
environment including in-patient and out-patient setting. Passing this evaluation is not the aim,
performing it with immediate feedback and lesson learnt is the ultimate goal. Therefore, this
assessment should not be approached as if it is an examination rather than an educational tool.
Process: The student should be responsible for the conduction of the event. A minimum of two
mini-CEX is needed per block. The process should end with a structured discussion between the
student and supervisor:
A selected case from the in-patient or out-patient setting to be interviewed by the
student under direct supervision.
The student should present the case, conclusion and reasons for actions. It should take
no longer than 15 minutes.
This should be followed immediately by feedback lasting 5-10 minutes. This should
include things done right and those need improvement.
A mini-CEX Form should be completed with the student present.
The assessment form should be part of the students Portfolio.
Skills to be assessed:
History-taking skills
Physical examination skills
Clinical diagnostic skills
Clinical judgment & synthesis
Patient management skills
Communication skills
Humanistic qualities & professionalism
Overall clinical competence
Feedback: To maximize the educational impact of assessment, aspects of performance that are
particularly good as well as those where there is scope for improvement should be discussed the
student. Feedback should be give sensitively, in a suitable environment. Areas for development
should be identified, agreed and recorded on the assessment form.
Outcome of assessment: The outcome of the assessment is a global professional judgment of the
assessor that the student has completed the tasks to the standard expected at his level.
