Students' Experiences of Clinic-Based Learning during a Final Year Veterinary Internship Programme
Matthew, Susan M.; Taylor, Rosanne M.; Ellis, Robert A.
Higher Education Research and Development, v29 n4 p389-404 Aug 2010
This study investigated veterinary students' experiences of clinic-based learning (CBL) during a comprehensive final year internship programme. Open-ended surveys (n = 93) were used to gather qualitative data about students' conceptions of what is learned during CBL and their approaches to learning in clinics. Phenomenography was used for detailed analysis of the variation evident in students' responses. Relationships between qualitative differences in students' conceptions and approaches were then evaluated using quantitative statistical analysis. Links to achievement during final year were examined. Close associations were found between the quality of students' experiences of CBL and achievement during the internship programme. (Contains 4 tables and 3 figures.)
