King Abdulaziz University offers a stand-alone module as part of their curriculum that has been adopted from the WHO Patient Safety Curriculum for Medical Schools (5). Thus, it resembles the intervention sample, as their program enables students to combine knowledge, attitudes and skills to achieve a deeper understanding of how their performance impacts on patient safety and the quality of healthcare. This paper aims to identify the problem regarding patient safety and evaluate the impact of teaching patient safety principles in one of its major universities in Saudi Arabia. It also evaluates the self-ratings of the students’ knowledge, attitudes and skills regarding errors and patient safety in a total of six medical schools in Saudi Arabia. It will highlight the initial results of the implementation and initial evaluation of the module by the medical students of King Abdulaziz University.
If one passes the USMLE they will be officially licensed to practice medicine. Once one has their license they can now go and complete the Anesthesiology Residency Program. The Anesthesiology Residency Program is a three year residency program training physicians to become anesthesiologists (Macario). After one is done with their one year internship one can now start with their three years of anesthesiology training. The first year one learns the basics of anesthesia and their procedures (Anesthesiology).
In this case the concurrent review was chosen. As discussed previously in the assignment it was decided that drug kardex documentation would be audited. A drug kardex, also known as drug prescription or drug script is defined by the World Health Organisation (2002) as ‘’an instruction from the prescriber to the dispenser’’. In this instance the prescriber will be identified as any doctor in the hospital setting with prescriptive authority and the dispenser can be identified as any registered general nurse. For this Audit the author took the following steps in developing questions for the Audit tool as guided by The National Institute for Clinical Excellence

My aim is to pursue a master’s degree in the field of epidemiology, specializing in statistical epidemiology. My focus will be on the methods for clinical and translational of the research, and critical reading of epidemiologic literature. Studying epidemiology will familiarize me with the research techniques which are crucial for me as medical doctor and to the patients. My passion in the field of medical research started from my 4th year at medical school, when together with my colleagues I led a survey that
In high school you can prepare for a medical career by concentrating on highly advanced science classes such as chemistry and biology. Volunteering or working at a hospital to receive first-hand experience working around healthcare professionals and patients is also another way to prepare (“American Society of Anesthesiologists - How to Prepare for a Career in Anesthesiology”). Undergraduate studies contain different knowledge you need to know. College students interested in a medical career should complete liberal arts requirements but plan a pre-med course of study. Most all accredited colleges offer standard pre-med curricula, which include calculous, general chemistry, organic chemistry and biology and physics.

Advances in technology and an anticipated increase in the number of outpatient clinics and doctors’ offices will offer students with a medical assistant degree an excellent chance of securing permanent employment. To be admitted to a medical assistant program in the state of Kentucky, potential students need a high school diploma or GED. A candidate will complete an application, which is then reviewed by an admissions rep. The school representative then interviews the applicant. If the admissions rep approves the
