Abstract

Introduction: Clinical education is a dynamic process in which- students, with presence in bedside, gain experience and interact with the teachers and the environment to apply learned concepts in practice. If the education fails to provide appropriate learning conditions, would be no possibility for clinical skills to nurture. This study was performed to deter­mine the satisfaction of medical interns with the quality of clinical education in Rasht teaching hospitals in 2014-15.

Methods: This descriptive-analytical study was carried out on 106 medical interns of Guilan University of Medical Sciences in 2014-15 using convenience sampling. The data were collected by a validated researcher-made questionnaire consisting of 3 sections and 39 items. SPSS.21 and descriptive and inferential statistics (Chi-square test, Fisher's exact test, and Man-Whitney U test), considering 95% confidence interval and 90% test power, were employed to analyze the data.

Results: The results showed that 50% of the interns were highly satisfied with the quality of education and the mean-score of students’ satisfaction was 65.68±14.19 out of 102. The interns’ satisfaction rate of different components was: familiarity with the objectives of the course (32.1%), teaching methods (53.8%), evaluation methods (41.5%), facilities and equipment (46.2%), students’ clinical skills (24.5%), and teachers’ skills (51.2%). There was no significant relationship between satisfaction and demographic factors (P>0.05).

Conclusion: Given the fact that the students were not highly satisfied with some of the components of clinical education such as familiarity with the objectives of the course and students’ clinical skills, it is recommended that the educational planners pay more attention to these components.
