Allowing medical students to interact with patients earlier in their medical course would better prepare them for their future role as a doctor, suggest researchers in this weeks BMJ.
Traditionally, the foundation years of medical education have grounded students in biomedical sciences but offered little, if any, clinical exposure. A group of 64 medical students, staff, and curriculum leaders from three UK medical schools discussed the question: "What can experience add to early medical education?" *
Without early experience, students felt the curriculum was socially isolating and divorced from clinical practice. Students described entering the clinical environment in year 3 as "being thrown in at the deep end."
