Abstract

Based on the results of this study, educational recommendations are made which might improve student performance in the examination and lead to greater patient satisfaction with the 'end product' of the medical school, namely the graduating student. These include the incorporation of students' observation of infection control measures within the assessment schedule, and more direct preparation of students in handling uncertainty and their anxieties within the consultation.
