    • Authors: Md Rahimgir, Md Ahsan Habib, Md Humayun Kabir Talukder
      Pages: 2 - 6
      Abstract: The present study was conducted amongst fourth and fifth year MBBS students of six medical colleges (4 govt. & 2 nongovt.) of Bangladesh to study their views regarding hidden curriculum and its effects on students learning in undergraduate medical education. A total of 637 students were included in the study. Out of 637 students, 393(61.7%) were female and 244(38.3%) male students. Three hundred and fifty (54.95%) were from fourth year and 287(45.05%) students were from fifth year MBBS. Most of the students (96.7%) agreed that teachers' good behavior with students influences students' active participation in the class. The mean score was highly satisfactory(mean 4.68 ± 0.643). Of the total responded students, 58.9% strongly agreed that teachers' good behavior with parents influences students to do the same, and mean score was highly satisfactory. More than 87% agreed that teachers' good behavior with colleagues influence students to do so. The mean score was 4.40 ± 0.730 and it was also highly satisfactory. Around 70% of the students strongly agreed that teachers' good behavior with the patients and attendances influences students to maintain similar behavior and attitude with the patients and attendances. The mean score was 4.64 ± 0.643. As per views' of the students, teachers' depth of knowledge, devotion to the work, interest in the subject, honesty, fairness, teachers' language and art of expression also affects students learning. The mean score was more than four as opined by the students in favor of institutional educational environment, cultural norms, values, traditions all of which can affect students' learning. Teachers' humiliation of the students, gender discriminations, social class difference, and students' politics in the institutes all can affect students' learning badly. After data analysis it was observed that many of the hidden factors normally exists in the institutes that affect students' learning positively and others affect negatively.Bangladesh Journal of Medical Education Vol.9(1) 2018: 2-6

      Pages: 7 - 9
      Abstract: This descriptive type of cross sectional study was carried out to observe the hospital educational environment of selected postgraduate medical institutes of Bangladesh. Study period was from July 2016 to June 2017.Sample size was 289 postgraduate clinical students of various course (MD, FCPS & Diploma) and 20 clinical teachers of 10 selected postgraduate medical institutes of Bangladesh. Convenience sampling technique was adopted. Data collection was done with self- administered semi-structured questionnaire using Postgraduate Hospital Educational Environment Measurement (PHEEM) inventory and by In-depth interview of teachers. Three subscales of PHEEM are students' perceptions about 'role autonomy', students' perceptions about quality of teaching and students' perceptions about social support. In-depth interview of the clinical teachers was undertaken to explore the training facilities in the selected postgraduate medical institutes of Bangladesh. Study result revealed total PHEEM score was110.08.Mean score of subscales of PHEEM were 34.51, 36.29 and 26.28 for 'role autonomy', quality of teaching and social support respectively. All these values indicates that the students' perception were in the right or positive direction. Analysis of individual items had shown mean score of most of the individual item were 2-3 that indicated the aspects of the climate that could be enhanced. There were few items that had mean score 2 or less than 2 that indicated the problematic areas of hospital educational environment. In-depth interview of the teachers revealed that there was also some problematic issues on postgraduate training facilities like work overload, lack of proper monitoring or supervision of training, inadequate library, internet, ICU and investigation facilities etc. Study recommended that significant attention should be paid in the problematic areas (lack of supervised training, heavy work load of student, lack of library facility etc.) as well as improvement needed on several areas of hospital educational environment of postgraduate medical institutes of Bangladesh.Bangladesh Journal of Medical Education Vol.9(1) 2018: 7-9

      Abstract: This descriptive cross sectional study was carried out to identify the existing barriers of faculty development in undergraduate medical education of Bangladesh. This study was conducted in eight (four Government and four Non- Government) medical colleges in Bangladesh over a period from July 2015 to June 2016. A semi-structured self-administered questionnaire was used for collecting data from individual teacher. Total 103 teachers responded to the questionnaire. Regarding barriers of faculty development about 47% respondents opined that insufficient initiatives by the institute, 38% of teachers opined too much workload. About 24% teachers opined lack of recognition and reward, 19% opined about lack of fund, 14% teachers' opined lack of organized programme, 12% about lack of qualified resource person for faculty development programme. From the findings of present study it is evident that medical institutes of Bangladesh should play a bit more active role for faculty development programme, should organize arrangement for adequate resources particularly faculty development instructors and funding for faculty development.Bangladesh Journal of Medical Education Vol.9(1) 2018: 10-13

      Pages: 21 - 25
      Abstract: This was a descriptive cross-sectional study conducted in 2015, objective was to find out the views of the students of 3rd phase of non-government medical colleges regarding the community based medical education practice in their colleges. Data was collected from 507 students of 12 medical colleges by using self-administered structured questionnaires. Among the students 223 were from the Dhaka city and 284 from outside the Dhaka city. Almost 90 percent of the students mentioned that their institutes conducted RFST and Day Visit programe, and duration of Residential Field Site Training (RFST) programe ranges from 1-30 days with mean 9.45 and SD ± 6.34. Most of the students mentioned that they did not stay night in the community. About sixty percent of the students were satisfied with the RFST programe . During RFST programme most of the students 387 (77.7) visited upazila health complex, and 296 (59.4) participated in the conduction of survey. Most of the students visited institute of public health, EPI head quarter and MCH centre or clinic during Day visit programme. Most of them mentioned problems faced in RFST programme as: lack of transport support; lack own accommodation facilities; lack of security; and lack of cooperation from the authority of the different organizations. Suggestions given by the students for the further improvement of the practice of CBME programme in their institutes were mainly : realization of importance of CBME by college authority , teachers and students; College authority should be well motivated for conducting the CBME programme activities in their institute; College authority should build dormitories for the permanent solution of the residential problems and College authority should have the required amount of transport for this activities.Bangladesh Journal of Medical Education Vol.9(1) 2018: 21-25

  • Medical Migration: a review on the licensing process for International
           Medical Graduates in Australia and other destinations

    • Authors: Sharafat Malek, Md Humayun Kabir Talukder
      Pages: 26 - 34
      Abstract: Movement of health care professionals, nationally or internationally, has now become a common trend worldwide. International recruitment of efficient physicians is an ongoing process for years although some studies have identified this culture as an issue.10-11 Waves of migration to popularly Australia under ‘Skilled Migration’ and other categories started in Bangladesh in early 1970, which have been ongoing since then.1 Among over thirty thousands of such migrants living in the popularly Australian States2; the medical graduates from Bangladesh are identified through their associations/forum made in each State as well as from the data on their participation in the re-accreditation examinations.3-4, 7-8 A lack of pre-migration awareness on social and academic barriers in the host country has been found far more common in the Australian International Medical Graduates’ (IMGs) studies published before 20045. Poor knowledge on the hurdles may affect IMGs’ post-migration coping or adjustment process. Fortunately, internet facilities are widely available so, modern IMGs no more need to rely on information from relatives, friends or high commission/embassy people. Yet, full access to career and job related journals could still be out of reach for many IMGs. Updated clear knowledge around licenselegislation at the destination would help IMGs gaining smoother transition whilst preparing to build the same career, albeit in a different system. This review article at first presents the background behind strict regulations on permitting the IMGs to practise in major destinations. It then progresses with reviewing these regulations in the developed countries including Australia. Following that a detailed summary has been made on the Australian regulations. Available literature6-8 demonstrates a large discrepancy between IMGs’ success rates in the knowledge and practical part of the licensing (Australian Medical Council) process (i.e. 80% vs. 42% in case of Bangladeshi-IMGs). Therefore, this paper has properly discussed the nature and structure of the practical (AMC-Clinical) examination incorporating examples. Useful web-links on Australian IMGs’ accreditation preparation, permanent migration and finding medical jobs have been provided at relevant sections. Finally, a recommendation has been made to teach 3rd-year medical students on this important area under the ‘Community Medicine’ curriculum in Bangladesh.Bangladesh Journal of Medical Education Vol.9(1) 2018: 26-34
