Abstract: 

Introduction: Clinical skill education is a principal part of medical education which is not usually organized and systematized. Providing information is helpful in future programming and decision-making. This survey was conducted on medical students to study the evaluation methods used for clinical courses of Hormozgan University of Medical Science (HUMS).
Methods: This cross-sectional study was based on the opinion poll of 102 medical students of HUMS in 2003. The survey consisted of 10-item questionnaire designed to evaluate preliminary information, general, assessment method, type of exams and the effect of other person’s viewpoints on clinical skill evaluation which was distributed among students at the beginning of a clinical course and collected at its end. The results are presented by Epi-info 2000 software in a descriptive format.
Results: Being punctual and answering oral questions was almost gradually evaluated according to student’s opinion (49% and 39.2%, respectively). Most students (81%) believe that scientific exam allocates less than 25% of evaluation grades, and some (70%) think that other people’s opinion (excluding the faculty) is completely ineffective in evaluation. Most of the students believed their evaluation best represented their clinical reasoning skill, while other skills such as communication with patient or physical examination and emergency procedures were least reflected in their evaluation.
Conclusion: The greater role of subjective assessments including teacher’s opinion on student evaluation and fewer objective methods applied for evaluation of clinical skills has let to the suggestion that a curriculum revision and introduction of more objective methods such as OSCE, logbooks or portfolios is necessary.
