BACKGROUND: An equitable and positive learning environment fosters deep self-directed learning in students and, consequently, good practice in their profession. Although demotivating weaknesses may lead to repeated day-to-day stress with a cascade of deleterious consequences at both personal and professional levels, a possible relationship between these parameters has not been reported. This study was undertaken to determine the relationship between students' perceptions of their educational environment and their stress levels...

OBJECTIVE: To assess educational environment in Aga Khan University Medical College (AKUMC) by Dundee Ready Educational Environmental Measure (DREEM) scale. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey of students at the AKUMC with simple random sampling was carried out from June 2014 till March 2015. Responses in five subscales were used to calculate DREEM scores. RESULTS: The average DREEM score was 125.77±16.8 with a reliability of 91.3%. With regards to subscales, on the 12-item students' perceptions of learning (PoL) subscale, the maximum score was 48; 11 items of students' perceptions of teachers (PoT) had a maximum score of 44; students' academic self-perceptions (ASP) identified by 8 items showed maximum score of 32; students' perceptions of atmosphere (PoA) with 12 items obtained maximum score 48 and students' social self-perceptions (SSP) subscale of 7 items had a maximum score of 28...

BACKGROUND: Perceived educational environment influences academic outcomes, such as academic achievement, students' behaviors, well-being, socio-emotional adjustment and explicit self-esteem. Mindfulness is a set of skills that are beneficial to physical and mental health. Recently, it has been increasingly discussed about its usefulness in education, but little research has explored whether mindfulness can predict perceptions of educational environment. The aim of this study was to explore Chinese medical students' perceptions of learning environment and their relationship with mindfulness...

BACKGROUND: The specialty of emergency medicine is in its infancy state in the long history of the Indian health sciences education system. Little analytical published data is available at the moment in India regarding the quality of medical education as perceived by the students. Roff et al. (Med Teach 19: 295-299, 1997) developed a methodology using a Delphi panel to standardize the measurement of medical education known as the Dundee Ready Education Environment Measure (DREEM), which is widely utilized...

Shelterin protein TRF2 modulates telomere structures by promoting dsDNA compaction and T-loop formation. Advancement of our understanding of the mechanism underlying TRF2-mediated DNA compaction requires additional information regarding DNA paths in TRF2-DNA complexes. To uncover the location of DNA inside protein-DNA complexes, we recently developed the Dual-Resonance-frequency-Enhanced Electrostatic force Microscopy (DREEM) imaging technique. DREEM imaging shows that in contrast to chromatin with DNA wrapping around histones, large TRF2-DNA complexes (with volumes larger than TRF2 tetramers) compact DNA inside TRF2 with portions of folded DNA appearing at the edge of these complexes...

Many cellular functions require the assembly of multiprotein-DNA complexes. A growing area of structural biology aims to characterize these dynamic structures by combining atomic-resolution crystal structures with lower-resolution data from techniques that provide distributions of species, such as small-angle X-ray scattering, electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy (AFM). A significant limitation in these combinatorial methods is localization of the DNA within the multiprotein complex. Here, we combine AFM with an electrostatic force microscopy (EFM) method to develop an exquisitely sensitive dual-resonance-frequency-enhanced EFM (DREEM) capable of resolving DNA within protein-DNA complexes...

INTRODUCTION: Educational Environment (EE) has significant impact on teaching-learning, satisfaction, performance and academic progress of students. Feedback obtained through structured questionnaire designed for them can serve as tool for identifying and solving these EE related problems. OBJECTIVE: To assess the perceptions of medical students concerning their educational environment (EE) using Dundee Ready Education Environment Measure (DREEM) scale.
