Stage de second cycle en médecine générale en Rhône-Alpes-Auvergne‎ : impact et influence de ses modalités sur l'envie d'être généraliste

Abstract : General medicine remains at a low level in students' choice at national exam while it represents more than half of the appointments. Since 1997, a general medicine training course is to be done, according to the law, in order to pass the second medical academic cycle, but one must note that it was barely made before 2008. This prospective, declarative and comparative study analyses this training course's impact in Rhône Alpes Auvergne's area, using two questionnaires, one before, the other one after the training course.186 students answered both questionnaires: the training course increases the will to become general practitioner (p < 0, 0001). Desire turn out to be more important when students are active during consultations, acquire practical knowledges (p = 0.0415), and realize pregnancy follow-ups (p = 0.0059) and paediatrics (p = 0.0056). The rural way of exercise increases the charm for this speciality (p = 0.033). 40% of the students discovered some unknown practices (pregnancy and psychological follow-ups for instance). 84% are satisfied with the training course they performed and 78% are ready to carry out another one. The best moment should be in DCEM 3, for one to three months. To improve this training course, they would like to be more active, have advices on the management of a consulting-room and the professional installation, and longer training course, spread over several years, with several practitioners to discover different practices. General medicine is a human medicine, "referee in problems of health in their physical, psychological, social, cultural and existential dimensions" which cannot be taught only in a hospital environment.
