Impact of family medicine clerkships in undergraduate medical education: a systematic review.

Turkeshi E, Michels NR, Hendrickx K, Remmen R - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Students' attitudes towards FM were improved, but new or enhanced interest in FM careers did not persist without change after graduation.Overall, student's presence and participation did not have a negative impact on patients.Future studies should involve different stakeholders, medical schools and countries, and use standardised and validated evaluation tools.

BMJOPEN2015008265F1: Flow diagram of the process of search and selection of the papers.

Mentions: The search strategy identified 1655 papers, which were entered in Endnote X6 (figure 1). After de-duplication and screening of titles and abstracts, 1540 papers were excluded mainly because they focused on other aspects of FM involvement in medical education, non-educational aspects of FM or postgraduate FM. Four papers selected for full-text review were not available even after using inter-university library exchange, while four others were available only in Chinese, Norwegian or Hebrew.
