RIO, Suzana Maria Pires do et al. Experience of women attended by medical students in gynecological care. Rev. bras. educ. med. [online]. 2013, vol.37, n.4, pp.492-500. ISSN 0100-5502.

Learning through interaction with patients is vital for medical education. It is well established that the participation of the student in medical practice is well accepted by patients. However, in the specialty of gynecology, the intimate nature of the consultation makes the discussion of the topic more delicate. This study evaluated how women attending public clinics view gynecological care provided by medical students and intended to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the consultations they reported. This cross-sectional study was conducted through questionnaires answered by 360 women. The results showed that although most women consider student presence as a good thing, 52.7% reported fear of their presence. The main reason for the positive feelings was the student's interest. Among those who viewed it as a negative thing, feeling embarrassed was the main reason cited. The majority found that student gender does not influence in their opinion about the consultation. In conclusion, the assessment of how women experience this care is essential to enhance the student-patient relationship and increase acceptance of this type of care.
