Griffin, Barbara; Auton, Jaime; Duvivier, Robbert; Shulruf, Boaz; Hu, Wendy – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2019
This study compared the profile of those who, after initial failure to be selected, choose to reapply to study medicine with those who did not reapply. It also evaluates the chance of a successful outcome for re-applicants. In 2013, 4007 applicants to undergraduate medical schools in the largest state in Australia were unsuccessful. Those who…

Barbosa, Joselina; Silva, Álvaro; Ferreira, Maria Amélia; Severo, Milton – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2018
One of the most important factors that makes the transition from secondary school to medical school challenging is the inability to put in the study time that a medical school curriculum demands. The implementation of regulated learning is essential for students to cope with medical course environment and succeed. This study aimed to investigate…

Crump, Casey; Ned, Judith; Winkleby, Marilyn A. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2015
Biomedical preparatory programs (pipeline programs) have been developed at colleges and universities to better prepare youth for entering science- and health-related careers, but outcomes of such programs have seldom been rigorously evaluated. We conducted a matched cohort study to evaluate the Stanford Medical Youth Science Program's Summer…

Dante, Angelo; Fabris, Stefano; Palese, Alvisa – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2013
Empirical studies and conceptual frameworks presented in the extant literature offer a static imagining of academic failure. Time-to-event analysis, which captures the dynamism of individual factors, as when they determine the failure to properly tailor timely strategies, impose longitudinal studies which are still lacking within the field. The…

Papinczak, Tracey; Babri, Awais Saleem; Peterson, Ray; Kippers, Vaughan; Wilkinson, David – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2011
Assessment partnerships between staff and students are considered a vital component of the student-centred educational process. To enhance the development of this partnership in a problem-based learning curriculum, all first-year students were involved in generating a bank of formative assessment questions with answers, some of which were included…

Steckelberg, Anke; Hulfenhaus, Christian; Kasper, Jurgen; Rost, Jurgen; Muhlhauser, Ingrid – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2009
Consumers' autonomy regarding health increasingly requires competences to critically appraise health information. Critical health literacy refers to the concept of evidence-based medicine. Instruments to measure these competences in curriculum evaluation and surveys are lacking. We aimed to develop and validate an instrument to measure critical…
