Reflective writing and personal talks in medical education: New segments in the Medical Psychology course helped to increase self-awareness

There is a national goal for medical students to gain self-awareness during their training. However, teaching methods and examination procedures supporting this goal are rarely discussed. Two new course segments – weekly newsletters and personal talks – aimed at stimulating self-reflection and self-awareness during the Medical Psychology course are presented, along with a student evaluation and the teachers’ experiences of the segments. The course evaluations and teachers’ comments support the perception that the new segments help to increase self-awareness. The teachers share the experience that the motivation, trust and openness shown by most of the students in their letters and talks are an impetus and important basis for increased self-reflection and self-awareness. For many students, personal talks have been important from a psychosocial point of view. It was possible to capture those in need of support and mediate further contacts when necessary.

Abstract [sv]

Självkännedom är ett nationellt mål för läkarexamen. Hur självkännedom som mål ska läras ut och examineras är dock föga diskuterat.

Här presenteras två nya moment inom kursen Medicinsk psykologi, vars syfte varit att stimulera självreflektion och självkännedom. Studenternas kursutvärderingar och lärarnas erfarenheter av dessa moment – veckobrev och personligt samtal – redovisas.

Kursutvärderingarna med kommentarer stödjer uppfattningen att de nya momenten bidrar till ökad självkännedom.

En gemensam erfarenhet hos lärarna har varit att den motivation, tillit och öppenhet som de flesta studenter visat i sina brev och i samtalen ger stimulans till och är en viktig utgångspunkt för ökad självreflektion och självkännedom.

Det personliga samtalet har haft en viktig psykosocial funktion för många studenter. Personer i behov av stöd har kunnat fångas upp och vid behov har olika kontakter förmedlats.
