The Structured Clinical Instruction Module (SCIM) provides students with a structured educational experience related to clinical skills on a single clinical topic.
This study examined the effect of the SCIM on students'performances on breast stations in an objective structured clinical examination (OSCE).
Three student groups each experienced a different type of instruction about breast care and treatment (condition A=lecture ; condition B=nine-station SCIM, lecture, and manual ; and condition C=five-station SCIM).
All students subsequently participated in a surgery OSCE that included standardized patient stations on taking a breast history and performing breast examinations.
One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) tests consistently found that the mean scores of students in conditions B and C were significantly (P<0.05) higher than those of students in condition A. CONCLUSIONS : These results suggest that the SCIM is an effective patient-based standardized instructional program that enhances the instruction of clinical skills to students.
