Teaching interview skills to preclinical medical students

  • Judith L. Dawkins (a1) and Lynne M. Drummond (a1)
Extract

The early years of medical students' experience can clearly be important in shaping their attitudes for the future. Typically pre-clinical students are bombarded with basic science subjects and many express the view that it is difficult to see the relevance of much of their academic study to their ambition of working with people. The Behavioural Science Course which is generally held during the students' second year is one of the few courses which is devoted to the functioning of the whole person in society. Typically, this course includes psychology and medical sociology.
