Abstract

Background: Experience of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in real clinical setting is not easily possible for all medical students.Purpose: To assess medical student perceived self-sufficiency on three procedural skill on internship courses after they had taken a training course in clerkship period.Methods: Forty three medical students who had attended a workshop on CPR, tracheal intubations and venopuncture answered the questionnaires on their perceived self-sufficiency in performing these procedures after serving a few months as interns.Results: The mean score for perceived self-sufficiency (PSS) was 75.84 (±18.63).Thre were a high correlation between the score given for the applicability of training in real life situation and the stress reduction scores on first time performing the procedure.Conclusion: The high degree of correlation between PSS scores and applicability scores, may warrant the consideration of new methods in procedural skills.
