Surgical cases. Tutorials

In the frames of TAME project the tutorials on the basis of 6 surgical cases with Virtual Patients and medical errors, which were created at ZSMU, have been completed. 
32 6th-year students of the Medical Faculty No1 (specialty “General Medicine”) were chosen by random sampling for the tutorials on VP surgical cases with medical errors. The timetable for the students was modified in such a way that the tutorials were planned for the period from 05 December, 2017 to 18 January, 2018.
The elective course “Training on medical errors in surgery” was  implemented as follows: 120 Hours, incl. 54 hours for classwork (36 hours for tutorials and 18 hours for lectures) and 66 hours for independent work. 
Before the tutorials a lecture on D-PBL and medical errors was conducted for all students. A pre-test on identifying the level of students’ knowledge was also conducted (36 questions on finding one best answer). 3 months after the tutorials the evaluation of knowledge for the students was conducted. 
At the end of the tutorials all students received Certificates of participation.
