Practical Application and Students' Abilities Assessment of Blended Teaching in Breast Oncology Department Clinical Internship

Objective Blended teaching has become the hot spot and advanced direction of educational reform, but there is little experience of blended teaching in clinical medicine internship courses. Besides, there is a lack of student ability assessment with empirical data supporting it in this research field, where our study aims to fill the gap. Methods We organized and implemented blended teaching in the breast oncology department for the class 2018 students’ clinical internship course by establishing and providing an online database. We collected student feedback through questionnaires and combined it with their comprehensive assessment results and teacher evaluations to jointly analyze and evaluate the improvement of students' abilities. Results This study effectively collected 137 questionnaires, of which 55 were from males (40.1%). The study found that the introduction of blended teaching could better solve many problems in breast oncology department clinical internships, avoid patient privacy issues, break the limitations of time and space, and expand the depth and breadth of students' learning. Students had large and persistent demands for learning resources, and some even increased during the clinical internship, which indicated that blended teaching was conducive to improving students' independent learning abilities. At the same time, students were satisfied with the online database which improved their learning effectiveness and clinical internship experience. Various data showed that incorporating blended teaching into clinical internships enhanced students' core clinical competencies. Conclusion This practice fills the shortcomings of existing research and has positive reference significance for promoting the deepening development of blended teaching and the reform of internship courses.
