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…

Najeeb, Umberin; Wong, Brian; Hollenberg, Elisa; Stroud, Lynfa; Edwards, Susan; Kuper, Ayelet – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2019
Many international medical graduates (IMGs) enter North American residency programs every year. The Canadian IMG physician pool increasingly includes Canadian-born IMGs (C-IMGs) along with Immigrant-IMGs (I-IMGs). Similar trends exist in the United States. Our objective was to understand the similarities and differences in the challenges faced by…

Lases, Lenny S. S.; Arah, Onyebuchi A.; Busch, Olivier R. C.; Heineman, Maas Jan; Lombarts, Kiki M. J. M. H. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2019
An optimal learning climate is crucial for the quality of residency training and may also improve residents' well-being and empathy. We investigated the associations of learning climate with residents' work-related well-being. A multicenter questionnaire study was performed among 271 surgery and gynaecology residents in 21 training programs from…

Dellenborg, L.; Wikström, E.; Andersson Erichsen, A. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2019
While person-centred care has gained increasing prominence in recent decades as a goal for healthcare systems, mainstream implementation remains tentative and there is a lack of knowledge about how to develop person-centred care in practice. This study therefore aimed to explore what may be required in order for person-centred care programmes to…

Mak-van der Vossen, Marianne C.; de la Croix, Anne; Teherani, Arianne; van Mook, Walther N. K. A.; Croiset, Gerda; Kusurkar, Rashmi A. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2019
Standardized narratives or "profiles" can facilitate identification of poor professional behaviour of medical students. If unprofessional behaviour is identified, educators can help the student to improve their professional performance. In an earlier study, based on opinions of frontline teachers from one institution, the authors…

Oudkerk Pool, Andrea; Govaerts, Marjan J. B.; Jaarsma, Debbie A. D. C.; Driessen, Erik W. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2018
While portfolios are increasingly used to assess competence, the validity of such portfolio-based assessments has hitherto remained unconfirmed. The purpose of the present research is therefore to further our understanding of how assessors form judgments when interpreting the complex data included in a competency-based portfolio. Eighteen…

Yang, Eunbae B.; Lee, Myung Ae; Park, Yoon Soo – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2018
In 2012, the National Health Personnel Licensing Examination Board of Korea decided to publicly disclose all test items and answers to satisfy the test takers' right to know and enhance the transparency of tests administered by the government. This study investigated the effects of item disclosure on the medical licensing examination (MLE),…

Vereijken, Mayke W. C.; van der Rijst, Roeland M.; van Driel, Jan H.; Dekker, Friedo W. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2018
Research integrated into undergraduate education is important in order for medical students to understand and value research for later clinical practice. Therefore, attempts are being made to strengthen the integration of research into teaching from the first year onwards. First-year students may interpret attempts made to strengthen research…

Givati, Assaf; Markham, Chris; Street, Ken – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2018
Over the past 2 decades, as part of reforms to the National Health Service and with it organizational changes to ambulance work in the UK, paramedic education has undergone a process of academisation and a shift from in-house, apprenticeship weeks-long occupational training, to university-based undergraduate programs. While the professional…

Joynes, Viktoria C. T. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2018
This paper is concerned with exploring the relationship between perceptions of professional identities, interprofessional education (IPE) and collaborative practice. It seeks to introduce the concept of interprofessional responsibility as both a shift in the way in which to conceptualise the professional identity of Health and Social Care…

de Visser, Marieke; Fluit, Cornelia; Cohen-Schotanus, Janke; Laan, Roland – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2018
In medical school selection, non-cognitive performance in particular correlates with performance in clinical practice. It is arguable, therefore, that selection should focus on non-cognitive aspects despite the predictive value of prior cognitive performance for early medical school performance. The aim of this study at Radboud University Medical…

Dennis, A. A.; Foy, M. J.; Monrouxe, L. V.; Rees, C. E. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2018
Emotion characterises learners' feedback experiences. While the failure-to-fail literature suggests that emotion may be important, little is known about the role of emotion for educators. Secondary analyses were therefore conducted on data exploring 110 trainers' and trainees' feedback experiences. Group and individual narrative interviews were…

Kitto, Simon C.; Grant, Rachel E.; Peller, Jennifer; Moulton, Carol-Anne; Gallinger, Steven – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2018
In 2007 the Cancer Care Ontario Hepatobiliary-Pancreatic (HPB) Community of Practice was formed during the wake of provincial regionalization of HPB services in Ontario, Canada. Despite being conceptualized within the literature as an educational intervention, communities of practice (CoP) are increasingly being adopted in healthcare as quality…

Academic procrastination has been a widespread problem behavior among undergraduates. This study aimed to examine the prevalence of academic procrastination among undergraduates in health professions, and explore the mediation effects of self-efficacy for self-regulation and fear of failure in the relationship between self-esteem and academic…
