    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To study interns'perceptions of their learning during their rotation through a short stay unit (SSU).

    Design 

    Case-based, qualitative research study.

    Setting 

    A tertiary care pediatric hospital (The Children's Hospital, Boston, Mass).

    Participants 

    Ten interns who had worked in the SSU in the 3 months prior to June 1,1995, and on a general medical team in the previous 12 months.

    Intervention 

    None.

    Main Outcome Measures 

    In July 1995, the interns participated in focused, open-ended interviews lasting about 40 to 60 minutes to document their perceptions of their learning during their SSU rotation.

    The interviews were recorded on audiotape and transcribed prior to analysis.

    Data were analyzed to discern and categorize themes from the interns'responses.

    Results 

    All interns responded favorably to their educational and learning experiences during their rotation through the SSU.

    Two major themes emerged : (1) the interns'learning, which was affected by the role of the attending physician, the organization and structure of the SSU, and the teaching strategies in the SSU ; and (2) the interns'collaborative work with the nursing staff in the SSU, which affected patient care but did not facilitate the interns'learning.

    Conclusion 

    Clustering in the SSU of patients whose symptoms suggested straightforward diagnoses enhanced interns'educational experiences.
