We plan to survey patients who receive their ambulatory adult primary care from medical students to determine how patients view the experience of working with a student.
The project will involve the following steps:
1. reviewing the literature to determine what studies exist on patients' attitudes toward working with students
2. designing or adapting tools (surveys, in-depth interviews, focus groups) to assess patients' attitudes toward working with students
3. developing a research proposal and achieving IRB approval
4. conducting the study
5. analyzing and disseminating the results.
Given the differences in models of education at our sites, one possible aspect of in-depth study could be comparing patient attitudes toward working with medical students in a longitudinal program versus a block rotation program.
