Asia-Pacific Medical Education Conference 2012
The ONE (Office of Neurological Education) group from Neurology Department received two education research awards at the 2012 Asia-Pacific Medical Education Conference (APMEC). The group won the first prize and the runner-up prize in the Best Paper (Platform) category for two different education research studies. The first prize was awarded to a study examining an assessment tool called the Script Concordance Test that assesses clinical reasoning in neurology in trainees. The runner-up prize was awarded for a study that was done by two YLLSOM students together with the ONE group. This study examines the fear of clinical neurology, termed “Neurophobia”, in undergraduates and postgraduate doctors.
