Étude des difficultés rencontrées par les étudiants du diplôme d’études Spécialisées de médecine générale de Bordeaux dans leur travail de thèse

Abstract : Introduction: at the end of the specialized curriculum of general practice, some of the students have not finished their thesis despite the helping tools provided by the department of general practice of the University of Bordeaux. Aim: draw up an inventory of and quantify the difficulties that the general practice students at Bordeaux university face when writing their thesis and evaluate how they feel about the helping tools provided by the department of general practice. Method: descriptive traversal study with questionnaire concerning all general practice students registered at Bordeaux university during the academic year 2016-2017. Results: only half of the students with a defined thesis subject had a doctoral adviser (54.5%). Nearly 90% of students declared that they had trouble writing their project. The mains problems were choosing the subject (43% of students), and finding an adviser (35.4% of the students). Students were well aware of the tools designed to help them and considered the written documents available to be more helpful than the formal teaching. Discussion: students face numerous issues when writing their thesis. They mostly have trouble searching for a subject and finding an adviser. These observations are in accordance with studies conducted in other medical schools. To improve the thesis process of the students, the general practice department should focus on developing tools to help them find an adviser more efficiently (information about teachers expertise domains) and on training new doctoral advisers.
