Methods This study used an exploratory research design. This is a required document on CB Bridges. Further research needs to focus on the impact of these placements on both clinical skills acquisition and job choices into the future.
On the medical programme, the clinical placements on hospital wards are often short, 1—2 weeks. Students are representing their workplace and the professions and should act professionally and be well mannered at all times.
Some venues require students to sign a statutory declaration that they will not discuss the workplace on social media so that confidentiality is maintained across a variety of areas.
There should be ample opportunity to observe surgery, with local, spinal and general anaesthesia. The behaviour was often directed towards patients or the supervisor a young intern.
