The PhD trail begins here…

So I'm delighted to say my PhD in virtual patients is beginning her, supported in full by an arthritis research UK educational research fellowship. I feel very privileged to be sponsored by a charity to perform educational research, and hopefully I will be using this blog as a record of my journey through the PhD application Arthritis Research UKprocess (which started on Friday following my last submission of my MMedEd project to Warwick Medical School. Onwards and upwards...

Arthritis Research UK can be contacted via their website. I hope to  be organising my own fund raising for the charity, which provides excellent research funding both for clinical and educational research into the management of arthritis.

Research dilemma: which medical student should/could miss out?

We're planning some educational research to look at patient feedback for mock medical student final exams. Assuming we are randomising patients into 2 groups and they have a set time for discussion (e.g. 10 minutes) we have an ethical dilemma.

Should we allow the student who get specific patient feedback (3minutes) more time in total (i.e. a discussion time of 13 minutes?)

Or should we allow both groups 10 minutes and include the patient feedback as part of that 10 minute session.

And is it fair to the medical students? We'll be presenting it tomorrow...

In the piece in question Ill be discussing the implementation of video based educational techniques and their comparison with text based delivery.
