Abstract

Background: Clinical clerkship is widely performed in Japanese medical schools. To achieve a better understating of anesthetic medical program in clinical clerkship, simulation training including a high-fidelity simulator for medical students has become popular gradually in Japan.

Methods: A questionnaire survey was conducted by asking the students how they evaluate our departmental program. The questionnaires consist of 4 questions about the simulation using CD-R, intubation training, maintenance of anesthesia practice, and simulation using a high-fidelity simulator.

Results: Understanding and interest in intubation practice were equally high. Many students had a great interest in a high-fidelity simulator.

Conclusions: Although our clinical clerkship program was highly evaluated by medical students, preparing texts before the program for the students seemed to be necessary to achieve better understanding.
