Description
We administered a questionnaire to 5th grade medical students to examine the effect of communitybased clinical practice on their attitudes to remote areamedicine and their course after the graduation.Data from 192 students were obtained. The intensity of students’ attitudes was estimated by using visual analogue scale. The intensities of the interest and a sense of fulfillment in remotearea medicine were significantly increased after the practice. A significantly lower level of the intensity to becomea generalist than that to becomea specialist was seen inthe students with low intensity in a sense of fulfillment. The percentages of the students who answered that they can work for 5 years or more in remote area were significantly lower in students with low intensity of a sense of fulfillment than in those with high intensity. A significantly higher percentage in students who worked at a familiar prefecture to them after the graduation was seen in female than in male. This study shows that the community-based practice is meaningful in increasing motivation which desire to work in remote area medicine, and that themotivation may affect their course after the graduation.
