Webinar – Practicum Universities: pilot application of the Clinical Reasoning Simulator Practicum Script to medical students
June 9, 2020 @ 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
The Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) is pleased to offer the webinar “Practicum Universities: pilot application of the Clinical Reasoning Simulator Practicum Script to medical students” with Eduardo Pleguezuelos, Practicum Institute of Applied Research in Health Sciences Education, Spain; Cees van der Vleuten Maastricht University, The Netherlands; Matthew Lineberry, the University of Kansas, Medical Center, USA; Carlos Collares, European Board of Medical Assessors (EBMA).
Summary: There is a strong need for effective approaches tailored to development of clinical reasoning skills and the ability to manage uncertainty in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education, and the simulation-based programme Practicum Script may contribute to this goal.
After briefly introducting the key features of the educational tool, we will focus on the details of an international multicenter study aimed at investigating the utility of Practicum Script as a reasoning training resource in undergraduate teaching assessment.
The target, final year medical students, and the assessment material, 20 real clinical cases of internal medicine validated by a reference panel made up by 20 internists from 16 faculties.
The pilot, coordinated by practicum Institute and the European Board of Medical Assessors, currently involves more than 800 volunteer students from 10 medical schools from Europe, the USA and Latin America and it is envisaged that more medical schools will join it during 2020.
The plan for psychometric analysis of the students’ results and for evaluation of students’ satisfaction and perceived impact on learning will be outlined in the webinar.
