Observations and several field notes as well as existing records, documents, and technical notes were other sources of data collection. After manuscript analysis, meaning units, codes, categories, and key themes were achieved. The strategies for results validation included triangulation of data collection sources and methods, continuous observations in the field, and supervision and review of the analysis process by research team.

Major themes were (1) unstructured education including sub-themes of lack of continuous primary training among freshmen and lack of retraining for physicians; (2) inadequate physician's competence including sub-themes of inadequate knowledge, and lack of success in earning patients and colleagues' trust; (3) barriers to effective education including sub-themes of planning-related challenges, inadequate supervision on physician training process.
