Indo-Chinese Refugee Physician ECFMG Review Course. Hahnemann Medical College & Hospital. Project Report.
Hahnemann Medical Coll. and Hospital, Philadelphia, PA.
A report is presented on a special review seminar for Vietnamese physicians preparing for the July 1976 Educational Council for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) examination. The 4-month review course was offered to 73 physicians at Hahnemann Medical College & Hospital. Participants were assigned to 10 small sections for English classes, and groups of four were assigned to individual tutors for concurrent remedial work in medicine and an introduction to the local practice of medicine. The medical course presented an integrated approach to basic and clinical sciences. The 20 students who passed the medical component but failed the English part of the ECFMG examination were advised to attend the FLEX review course. Special videotaped lectures were made available to the students, as was a cultural orientation course. Lengthy appendices include: a course application form; student financial statement form; the English course schedule and information on teaching materials and learning activities; language evaluations of the participants; ECTFMG review course schedule; test scores; instructional materials on diseases; results of participants' evaluation of the course; a list of faculty and staff; staff evaluations of the course; a list of course objectives; and case studies.
