Mental Health Disorder Among Medical Students

Mental Health Disorder Among Medical Students

Doctor is one of professions with top career interest. Until now, there are 75 medical faculties all over Indonesia. Medical institutions are established to create qualified and professional human resources (doctors) in order to improve community well- being, especially in the health sector. However, medical students will found many challenges in the learning processes. They have to take longer time and more tuition cost along study in medical institution. In addition, the burden of materials to be learned during education, including pre-clinical, clinical and resident levels can also become stressor for their psychological. High mental health disorder among undergraduate students, especially medical students has been reported in various studies around the world. The most common psychiatric problems are depression and anxiety disorders. The identified stressors are too much materials in a relatively short period of time, inability to complete tasks on time, multiple exams, deprivation of sleep patterns, and competitive environments. Various factors which contribute to this condition are gender, socioeconomic level, race, marital status, poor academic achievement, parental education level and interpersonal relationships. Coping strategy can be a solution for this problem, such as taking time for social and personal life. In addition, a student counseling center in university should be established so their mental health problems can be intervened early.

Coping strategies related to total stress score among post graduate medical students and residents

Coping strategies related to total stress score among post graduate medical students and residents

There are several limitations which must be considered in the interpretation of our results. Firstly, in this study we did not have physical health data which may relate to one’s stress level. However, the post graduate medical students and residents just had medical clearance (physically) fi t for enrolling in the study. Secondly, the subjects were purposive selected among fi rst year post graduate students and residents only. They did not represent all graduate students and residents in Indonesia. However, our subjects were MDs who may understand the bene fi t of the study, and we used an anonymous self reply questionnaire.

Undergraduate Medical Students’ Perceptions on Feedback-Seeking Behaviour

Undergraduate Medical Students’ Perceptions on Feedback-Seeking Behaviour

Another finding is that students who are more active in looking for feedback are high- achievers and highly motivated students. Feedback-seeking behaviour is related to the skills of critical thinking, intellectual development and learning motivation (20). Students with well-developed critical thinking skills will be accustomed to self–assessment and will strive to enhance the quality of their learning (21). This critical thinking ability will then encourage students to actively seek feedback (20). Moreover, an increased sense of student motivation will promote feedback-seeking behaviour because such students have clear goal orientations (20). This finding is also supported by Sinclair and Cleland’s retrospective research on undergraduate medical students related to feedback-seeking behaviour following particular tasks and examination results (8). High-achiever students ask for feedback because they think feedback can help them to improve their future performance. On the other hand, low-achievers rarely look for feedback since they are fearful of receiving negative comments (12).

Medical and law students` request acts strategies: a pragmatic study.

Contrariwise, as the second point to note, the Law students put more weight on the internal modifications of 1.26% than the Medical group. This difference was confirmed by t-test result of 0.037 which indicated that the different use of the internal modifications between the two groups is significant. Corresponding to their field of study, Law students favored greater interrogative structure of requests as the most important syntactic mitigator internally. This finding suggested that when dealing with real working life, the speakers of Law preferred to use interrogatives since their job required them to do so. On other hand, Medical students were found to advantage more conditional syntactic modifications to convey politeness as well as to minimize the force. However, as future medical practioners, Medical students would often deal with their patient and they had to be able to give suggestions and recommendations about things to do and not to do to them. Whereas, giving advice through conditional statements provided less burden of commitments to the hearers to either accept or refuse it, and at the same time, offered more chance to the hearers to respond the requests stated.

NEED ANALYSIS FOR IDENTIFYING ESP MATERIALS FOR MEDICAL RECORD STUDENTS IN APIKES CITRA MEDIKA SURAKARTA

NEED ANALYSIS FOR IDENTIFYING ESP MATERIALS FOR MEDICAL RECORD STUDENTS IN APIKES CITRA MEDIKA SURAKARTA

So, medical students need ESP curriculum. ESP curriculum is a specific one and that there are certain steps that must be followed to develop ESP syllabuses such as analyzing learners’ needs, planning au- thentic and reliable materials, finding rel - evant and appropriate discourse, deciding the language activities and task, editing the syllabus, and as a final pointconductingthe syllabus design in a class and evaluating the materials. General English curriculum usu- ally contains English language needs, but ESP curriculum considers both of the gener- al and specific English in reaching the goal, which is learners will be competent to use English in their specific field or profession. For example, an ESP syllabus in medical re- cord needs to focus more on specific Latin and English terminology to understand ICD as the main source of students in this major. It should be consequently noted that ESP learners’ needs is significantly determined by their major and thus influences the par - ticular aspects of planning syllabus. Nunan and Carter (2008) argued that need analy- sis is to be carefully oriented toward learn- er-centered methodology.

Medical education and social environment

Medical education and social environment

Background: A positive learning environment and quality of course content have an imperative role in academic achievement of students. This study aims to assess students’ point of view about the quality of education and social environment of a public sector medical college in Pakistan. Relative scarcity of data from students’ perspective merited this study. Methods: A cross-sectional survey was undertaken at Ayub Medical College, Abbottabad, Pakistan, including 300 medical students from all five years of the MBBS course. Systematic random sampling was used with a k th interval of 4 for each class. Self-administered questionnaire was used and contained items related to academics, learning environment, learning resources, teaching methodologies and student-friendly activities. The data were analysed using SPSS-16. Results: There were 265 respondents (88.3%) to the questionnaire with males accounting for 58.9% (n=156). In general students showed satisfaction with quality of content being taught; however there was discontent towards various academic and non- academic facilities provided to the students. Only 44.10% and 31.50% students reported provision of academic related facilities and interactive sessions as up to mark respectively; 83% students reported that undergraduate medical research was in need of improvement; 55.5% and 60.2% reported that facilities in hostel and recreational facilities needed improvement respectively; and 52.8% students stated presence of a healthy, student friendly, encouraging environment was not up to mark. Conclusion: Although course content and teaching methodologies are generally satisfactory, a healthy, student friendly, encouraging environment is yet to be created to help students foster their abilities completely.

Directory UMM :Data Elmu:jurnal:A:Advances in Physiology Education:Vol275.Issue6:

known as the ‘‘clinical years’’ of medical school. Whereas some institutions schedule lectures during the clinical clerkships, many curricula focus the educa- tional process on experiential learning venues associ- ated with ward rounds or other faculty and house officer clinical care activities. This environment offers a nearly perfect opportunity for student-directed PBL. Small groups of medical students or students and house officers can focus PBL on cases developed by the faculty that ensure exposure to clinical entities common or important to their discipline. Alterna- tively, ‘‘real’’ patient cases encountered in the hospi- tal or clinics may be the focus of study. These PBL sessions can and should be used to continue the learning or review of the basic sciences as well as patient care principles. It should be remembered that for basic sciences to be a part of the learning, tutors must require students to address basic science issues. For this to happen, the basic science faculty must be involved in the tutorial as tutors or cotutors, or the clinical faculty must be coached to encourage basic science learning.

PENGARUH STRES KERJA, KEPUASAN KERJA DAN KOMITMEN ORGANISASI TERHADAP TURNOVER INTENTION MEDICAL REPRESENTATIVE | Nasution | MIX: JURNAL ILMIAH MANAJEMEN 1981 4295 1 SM

Medical representative akan tetap bertahan di perusahaan dikarenakan tidak pekerjaan lain yang sesuai keahlian yang dimiliki medical representative , karena sudah lama bekerja di perusahaan ini, ingin sampai pensiun di perusahaan, puas dengan kompensasi yang diberikan, perusahaan ini sudah menjadi bagian dari kehidupan dalam menafkahi keluarga, adanya ketakutan kalau perpindah ke perusahaan lain, hal tersebut juga sependapat apa yang dikatakan Capricornia dan Hidayat, (2012) bahwa anggota organisasi yang puas dengan apa yang diperoleh dari pekerjaanya akan memperlihatkan komitmen organisasional yang tinggi, hal ini menunjukkan bahwa stres kerja berpengaruh secara signifikan dan negatif terhadap komitmen organisasional. Arah hubungan negatif antara stres kerja dan komitmen organisasi menunjukan bahwa tingkat stres kerja yang rendah cenderung diikuti dengan peningkatan komitmen organisasi. Stres kerja mempunyai pengaruh tidak langsung terhadap komitmen organisasional melalui kepuasan kerja, ini sejalan dengan mengungkapkan bahwa stres kerja tidak memiliki pengaruh langsung dan signifikan terhadap komitmen afektif, namun kepuasan kerja merupakan mediator antara stres kerja dan komitmen afektif. Penelitian Dhania (2010), Sijabat (2011), Wibowo et al. , (2015), dan Masydzulhak et al. , (2016) membuktikan bahwa variabel kepuasan kerja berpengaruh positif signifikan terhadap komitmen organisasional, hal ini mengandung pengertian bahwa jika kepuasan kerja tinggi maka karyawan akan bertahan lebih lama untuk terus bekerja dan bertahan di perusahaan sehingga komitmen organisasi dapat ditingkatkan apabila kepuasan kerja karyawan merasa terpenuhi dengan baik. Variabel kepuasan kerja merupakan variabel yang mempunyai pengaruh yang cukup besar terhadap komitmen organisasional karena semakin tinggi komitmen organisasi seorang karyawan maka secara otomatis kinerja semakin baik pula.
