Description de l’organisation de la cinquième année hospitalo-universitaire en France et de sa perception par les étudiants dans un contexte de réforme des études de pharmacie

Abstract : Introduction and objective: In France, the fifth year of PharmD program is called “university hospital year” because an internship in hospital must be completed by students during this period. There is a national pedagogical guide for clinical pharmacy hospital functions to help students in their duties performance. Recently, the Deans’ Conference of the Faculties of Pharmacy of France has published a guide for pharmacy students about their hospital functions and training objectives. Because of the heterogeneity of this training year configuration in the 24 faculties and the current context of reform, we wanted to evaluate student perception and describe organization of this training year. Methods: During March and April 2019, all fifth and sixth year pharmacy students in France (n=6196) were interviewed using an on-line questionnaire that included seven sections: (1) interest and education, (2) supervision, (3) role and (4) activities during the internship, (5) interprofessionnalism, (6) knowledge of the existing pedagogical guide and (7) global appreciation. To describe organization, in each faculty, the referent teachers of this training year (n=24) were also interviewed by an on-line questionnaire arranged in four sections: (1) preparation of university hospital year, (2) hosting of student, (3) supervision and (4) assessment of the internship. A multiple correspondence analysis and hierarchical clustering were also performed to identify different student profiles. Results: Respectively 24 (100%) and 836 (13.5%) responses were obtained from teachers and students. We identified disparities between faculties for students’ preparation and assessment of the internship. Pharmaceutical dispensing products and clinical pharmacy are the two field with the most responses “most agree” and “totally agree”. Indeed students feel for those fields more attracted, more trained, more supervised, integrated and useful. Among sixth-year students, 37 (13.5%) and 30 (10.9%) indicated performing case presentation and critical reading article more than 5 times during the internship. 818 (97.8 %) students didn’t have the knowledge of the pedagogical guide. Moreover, 7 (29.2%) faculties have position description for all the internships they propose. Conclusion: Students perception about this training year and its internship can be improved and this survey could help renovating the national pedagogical guide and it could help developing the training objectives’ guide.
