INTRODUCTION: To base the medical student's education on scientific evidence, we need to applied to medical education the same evidence-based methods characteristics of scientific research. Our goal is to change curricula, educational methods, teaching of clinical skills, in order to improve professional training of medical and nursing students. Our work highlights the student's point of view relative to changes of educational project, that is a constitutive aspect of best evidence medical education. DESIGN: Every year, an evaluation test is submitted to all medical, nursing and nutritionist students of Universita "Campus Bio-Medico". This test worked out by both teachers and students, is designed to explore student's perception of all aspects, educational and relational, related to the university. Data are been processed using explorative analysis of principal elements, and then using factorial analysis with "Varimax", data orthogonal rotation. A specific database in Microsoft Access, is been used for data entry, while statistical analysis is been performed using didactic software STATA (Stata Corporation). RESULTS: According to data, we can claim that our students evaluate their teachers and tutors depending on two principal factors: on one hand educational skills, that include personal competence on teaching and getting in touch with the students; on the other hand managing and planning skills. These are very important to overcome the dangers related to integrated courses, composed by many different scientific matters and planned by many teachers: without a very good planning, students may not be allowed to achieve clear, synthetic and well-structured knowledge. CONCLUSIONS: Students want to be regarded as adult learners, they wish to achieve a well structured knowledge, both composed by theoretical and practical skills and personal relations, in order to think of every activity according to an organic knowledge.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: To base the medical student's education on scientific evidence, we need to applied to medical education the same evidence-based methods characteristics of scientific research. Our goal is to change curricula, educational methods, teaching of clinical skills, in order to improve professional training of medical and nursing students. Our work highlights the student's point of view relative to changes of educational project, that is a constitutive aspect of best evidence medical education. DESIGN: Every year, an evaluation test is submitted to all medical, nursing and nutritionist students of Universita "Campus Bio-Medico". This test worked out by both teachers and students, is designed to explore student's perception of all aspects, educational and relational, related to the university. Data are been processed using explorative analysis of principal elements, and then using factorial analysis with "Varimax", data orthogonal rotation. A specific database in Microsoft Access, is been used for data entry, while statistical analysis is been performed using didactic software STATA (Stata Corporation). RESULTS: According to data, we can claim that our students evaluate their teachers and tutors depending on two principal factors: on one hand educational skills, that include personal competence on teaching and getting in touch with the students; on the other hand managing and planning skills. These are very important to overcome the dangers related to integrated courses, composed by many different scientific matters and planned by many teachers: without a very good planning, students may not be allowed to achieve clear, synthetic and well-structured knowledge. CONCLUSIONS: Students want to be regarded as adult learners, they wish to achieve a well structured knowledge, both composed by theoretical and practical skills and personal relations, in order to think of every activity according to an organic knowledge.
