PROFMED - Medical students' professional identity formation during hospital practice
PROFMED aims to improve medical students’ hospital placement learning, and support the development of a professional doctor’s identity.
This is done by 1) systematically preparing students for workplace participation, and 2) educating hospital doctors who interact with students at Haugesund hospital.
The project will address fourth-year medical students in Bergen, who do their placements in surgery and internal medicine in 4 different hospitals. Intervention 1 consists of student-active activities to prepare students intellectually and affectively for hospital placement, using peer-peer and digital learning activities to provide information and support reflection. Intervention 2 is a collaborative, locally anchored faculty development project targeting all relevant physicians at Haugesund hospital, offering a longitudinal program for developing reflexive supervision skills, aiming at long-term learning environment changes, and can easily be applied to other practice settings, in other fields, both locally, nationally and internationally.
The project is funded by DIKU - Direktoratet for internasjonalisering og kvalitetsutvikling i høyere utdanning/The Directorate for internationalization and quality development inhigher education.
