An instrument was developed to survey third-year medical students about their experience with 18 clinical skills that are generally recognized as required learning for the third-year surgical clerkship.
The same instrument was adapted to ascertain which surgical skills 25 fourth-year medical students, 25 surgical residents, and 25 practicing surgeons thought should be acquired during the third-year surgical clerkship.
None of these evaluators had completed medical school or residency at our institution.
A remarkable degree of conformity was found in the rankings of the 18 clinical skills by senior students, surgical residents, and practicing surgeons; fourth-year students rated only central venous line placement and simple operative procedures as significantly more important than did more senior evaluators.
