Abstract

The performance of trainees, including their knowledge, skills, and attitudes, can be assessed under direct observation of a qualified rater. We analyzed direct observation of procedural skills (DOPS) assessments used in suture workshops for medical students studying for more than 1 year. Between August 2009 and August 2010, we used DOPS to assess 89 medical students and first-year residents during suture workshops. Fifty-three DOPS assessments done by one teacher were selected for analysis; after excluding residents, 46 DOPS assessments of medical students were used in this study. There were 11 items in the DOPS rating sheet. The average age of the 46 students was 24.8 years, 30 were males and 16 females, and 27 students were from university A and the remaining 16 were from university B. Numbers of year-5, -6, and -7 students were 18, 15, and 13, respectively. Female students had superior communication skills. Students of university A were superior in two items. Grade-6 students were better than grade-5 students for two items and better than grade-7 students for one item. DOPS can be used as a formative assessment tool which provides immediate feedback to students. Female students had superior communication skills. Being a higher-grade students did not ensure a better performance. The limitation of this study was that suture simulation with porcine skin impedes communication between students and patients.[not sure what you mean in last sentence??]
