FRENCH FACULTY OF MEDICINE - Derogatory clause within University - Competitive selection for entrance -Professionnal School « we teach the job we are doing, we do the job we are teaching… », What’s about the applicated job of Professors of canon law, of sanskrit, of esperanto ? -French Faculties of Medicine are linked to several teaching hospitals where all faculty members must teach, doing research and clinical/biological patient care.
FRENCH TRAINING TRENDS - USUAL TRAINING: 3 steps 1) TRAINING 2) GUIDANCE 3)SELECTION - FRENCH TRAINING: 2 steps -1) TRAINING 2) SELECTION ( BUSINENESS- ADMINISTRATION-MEDICINE ) - NO BY-PASS/BRIDGE - CONCLUSION: eveything is done at 20 y.o. !!! -
A STRONG EXAMPLE FOREIGN STUDENTS/MD -PACES: 8%----less 1% vs 17% -D1---upon personal file examination -D4
BY-PASS seats - GRANDES ECOLES AFTER CURSUS COMPLETION ( 6 y) - Ph D ( 8 y )
CLINICAL TRAINING -D1: introduction with nursing care + semiology teaching at the bed side -D2-D4: ½ time to the bed side + on call+teaching pathology/therapeutics -RESIDENCY ( 3 y GP/ 4-5 Others): full time bed side+ on call+ teaching specialty -Early contact at the bed side-strong clinical training
