Abstract

Clinical training provides the possibility of learning a wide range of important diseases that doctors may encounter in their future career. The present study was conducted to analyze the viewpoint of the students on the outpatient clinical training. This descriptive study was carried out on 109 medical students during internship using convenience sampling. Data were collected by a questionnaire designed to gather the medical students’ viewpoints about outpatient clinical training. Data were analyzed by SPSS software using chi-square test. From 109 students, 57.1% of them were female and 30.6% evaluated the outpatient clinical training status as highly appropriate, 32.2% as inappropriate and 29.4% considered the physical conditions of the clinic as inappropriate. The major challenges for the students were physical conditions, lack of access to scientific resources and independent activity of the students. However, the strength was the role of subspecialist in education.
