Title Stethopedia: an E-Learning Resource for Medical Students to Supplement Canadian Clinical Skills Education.
Background/Purpose E-Learning is a powerful tool for supplementation of traditional pedagogical models in medical education. However, there are few Canadian-based resources that provide online clinical skills teaching.
Methods Stethopedia┬ę is one of the first open-access websites created by medical students for medical students as an adjunct to Canadian clinical skills curricula. The content is based on the McMaster Clinical Skills Guide and the AFMC Clinical Skills Document. This resource features OSCE-style physical examination videos, special videos for teaching on difficult maneuvers (i.e., diaphragmatic excursion), and tutorials on interpreting radiological findings. A satisfaction survey was disseminated to McMaster medical students from March 22 to April 24, 2021 to evaluate the utility and satisfaction with Stethopedia. We used descriptive statistics to analyze rating scale responses and performed a Mann-Whitney U test on responses.
Results Our website currently has 23 different instructional videos posted, with more in production. Since launching on February 2, 2021, Stethopedia has accumulated 11,961 views, with 3,403 unique visitors from 29 different countries. The questionnaire response rate was 17.5% (108/617). Respondents consisted of 47 (43.5%) first-year pre-clerks, 57 (52.7%) second-year clerks, and four (3.7%) third-year clerks. The large majority (>70%) of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that Stethopedia improved confidence, was a useful supplementary resource for clinical skills education, and would recommend Stethopedia to a colleague.
Discussion Stethopedia is an innovative resource that has been widely used and well-received at our institution. This resource can serve as a robust medical education adjunct to improve confidence and competence of future medical professionals.
