The hospital internal medicine practice is changing : increasing complexity of patients; implementation of the Electronic Medical Record (EMR); growing volume of medical data and administrative tasks, and limitation of working hours. We quantified the daily tasks of our internal medicine residents. They didn't manage to fulfill their duties in the scheduled time and had to stay after hours ; further, activities indirectly related to patients predominated. Residents spent a daily average of 1.7 hours with patients, 5...

INTRODUCTION: The revision of the French medical studies' third cycle ought to be competency-based. In internal medicine, theoretical and practical knowledge will be assessed online with e-learning and e-portfolio. In parallel, a reflection about clinical skills assessment forms is currently ongoing. In this context, our aim was to assess the reproducibility and validity of two assessment forms based on direct clinical observation. METHOD: A prospective and multicentric study has been conducted from November 2015 to October 2016 aiming at evaluating the French translations of the MINI-Clinical Examination Exercice (MINI-CEX) and the Standardized Patient Satisfaction Questionnaire (SPSQ)...

China formally established a system of national standardized medical residency training in 2014, which affects the health of its 1.4 billion people. Accompanying this system were new guidelines and standards for internal medicine residency training. However, the majority of the standards focused on process measurements, such as minimum case requirements of diseases and procedural skills, rather than describing broader physician competencies in the domains of professionalism, patient care, communication, teamwork, quality improvement, and scholarship...

Oral medicine (OM) is a relatively young dental specialty usually dealing with the oral healthcare of patients suffering from chronic recurrent and medically-related disorders of the mouth and maxillofacial region and with their diagnosis and mostly non-surgical management. The beginning of OM goes back to 1925 in the USA and 1950s in Europe. However, official specialty recognition is more recent and within Europe, it is only in the UK, Croatia and Israel where OM is recognised by local registering authorities, although in several other European countries it is viewed as a distinct field of study...
