Abstract

Background: Few medical education programs provide hands-on classes using electronic medical charts for a large number of students.
Methods: To simulate a medical interview, third- and sixth-year medical students viewed electronic medical chart samples on a screen, created by FileMaker, and discussed patient management. Following this, they underwent a questionnaire survey.
Results: A total of 63.1 and 76.3% of the third- and sixth-year students responded to the questionnaire, and 87.1 and 78.9% of the responders became interested in the class, respectively, because it focused on hands-on, practical training. A total of 5.6% of third-year students stated that the class was difficult to master but they hoped to continue learning.
Discussion: The adoption of a hands-on class using electronic medical charts interested even junior medical students.
