The relationship between preceptor expectations and student performance on 2 pediatric objective structured clinical examination stations.
We designed 2 pediatric objective structured clinical examination stations, 1 anemia case associated with lead exposure and 1 failure-to-gain-weight case associated with extended breast-feeding, to evaluate third-year medical students who had studied in pediatric community preceptors'offices as part of a 12-week multidisciplinary ambulatory clerkship rotation.
To examine the relationship between preceptor expectations and student performance on these 2 objective structured clinical examination stations.
To elicit community preceptors'expectations of student performance, we constructed a 46-item survey replicating checklists filled out by simulated patients evaluating student performance on the objective structured clinical examination stations.
The percentage agreement among preceptors for each checklist item as well as the percentage agreement between preceptor responses and student responses on each checklist item were calculated.
A summary score of preceptor responses across all checklist items and a summary score for student responses across all checklist items on each station were calculated.
The correlation coefficients between preceptor and student summary scores were then examined.
Fifty-nine preceptor surveys were mailed and 38 were returned (64% response rate).
Data were usable from 37 surveys
