TORRE-CISNEROS, Julián et al. The acquisition of clinical skills at the University of Cordoba: a student self-assessment. Educ. méd. [online]. 2003, vol.6, n.2, pp.61-66. ISSN 1575-1813.

Introduction: During undergraduate study, ongoing training is needed to acquire professional competence as a general practitioner. For this training to be effective, it is necessary to establish the clinical skills and professional competence required for postgraduate students. These objectives must be taken into consideration when defining teaching methods and assessing competence. Material and methods. With the aim of identifying which clinical skills should be included in the educational goals of our Faculty, graduating students were asked to assess their competence in conducting anamneses, physical examinations and basic clinical skills and procedures. Results. Our findings suggest that too few students believe they have acquired the above skills. Seventeen percent of the students do not consider themselves to be qualified to conduct patient anamnesis. Conclusions. Due to the subjectivity of the method, the results must be completed through an objective assessment of the skills acquired by our students. However, our study also suggests that it is necessary to change the practical teaching methods currently in use and the manner in which clinical competence is assessed in our Faculty.
