AMSA Kyrgyzstan organized “The Healers 2022” which was held to assess our students’ practical knowledge of skills like physical examination, ECG, Radiological Image Interpretation & CPR. It was held at the Simulation Centre of International Higher School of Medicine. Total 8 medical universities participated in this activity with their mentors. From every university, the best 4 medical students participated and the mentors were in judging panel.
Medical students of Kyrgyzstan were lacking the practical skills as, some of the universities were not having the equal facilities when compared to others. During Pandemic, 90%of medical students were unable to perform the crucial practical skills due to which the quality of education was decreased. Medical students in Kyrgyzstan were demotivated, since they missed a huge part of studies. Due to this activity, the students would be motivated again and get to work on the practical skills.
Medical students, Doctors, Other health professionals
- Our aim was to assess the knowledge of approximately 2 medical students from at least 8 medical universities of Kyrgyzstan about physical examination.
2. To provide knowledge and assess 75% of participants regarding ECG and Radiological Images Interpretation.
3. To provide the skills and assess at least 50% of the target audience regarding Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation.
Indicators of Success:
- About 16 medical students were able to perform the physical examination and at least 30% of the participants were able to recognize the auscultation sounds presented by jury .
2. 50% of the participants were able to interpret ECG and Radiological Images provided by the jury.
3. 75% of target audience were able to stabilize the patients while performing the CPR simulations.
The registrations and promotions began one month prior to the event. The mentors and participants were kept up to date about the event. This event was of 2 days; first day was the actual event/competition at simulation center of International Higher School of Medicine and 2nd day was distribution of awards and certificates. There were 8 medical universities, 4 participants and a mentor from each university. At the beginning of the event, 5 minutes were given to each university to introduce themselves to the audience. Each round of the activity was 1.5 hours. In between the first and second rounds, refreshment was provided to the participants, mentors and organizers. Every participant got to work individually and show the skills, gain points from the jury. Approximately, 20 members from the organizing committee worked closely before and during the event.
Plans for evaluation:
Evaluations will be done by the mentors from each university fairly. For each objective, participants will be asked to perform individually / team wise and out of 5 points, every participant will get points from the jury.
On the second day of the event, certificates, medals & trophies will be given to the best participants and their universities.
Before the event, participants will be asked about their knowledge they have towards the objectives. All the evaluation data will be stored in NMO database.
