The acquisition of practical skills by U.S. medical students.
Increasing interest in skills training has been prompted by concerns over risks posed by new, complex clinical environments and the need for medical students to function effectively in such settings.
To gain a better idea of the type of instruction currently provided to U.S. medical students, a national survey was conducted in 1991.
A survey instrument was prepared after a literature review on practical skills training.
Eleven skill and knowledge areas were selected for analysis; six were considered « basic » and five « advanced. » Mailings were directed to the deans of 126 U.S. medical schools.
Based on a 94% response rate (118/126), the skill and knowledge areas taught most commonly included universal precautions, phlebotomy, intravenous line placement, advanced cardiac life support, and suturing lacerations.
