|Investigation of satisfaction with clinical education among physical therapy students
Clinical education is an essential part of physical therapy education. So it seems reasonable to use the information obtained from students' assessment of clinical education to improve its quality. This study investigated the perception of senior students in the departments of physical therapy regarding the clinical education in the 1993 academic year. The degree of satisfaction with clinical education as well as factors that might influence students' satisfaction were investigated. seventy-eight students from six universities participated in this study. A self- administered structured questionaire was used for data collection and a scale to measure students' satisfaction with clinical education was constructed for this study. Questions focused mainly on students' attitude towards clinical education; personal details of students were also collected. that only 2.8% of the students reported low levels of satisfaction with clinical education, 51.7% showed a medium level, whilst 45.4 % showed a high level of satisfaction. Univariate analysis and stepwise regression analysis were employed to examine the association between student characteristics and the level of satisfaction with clinical education. The analysis showed that certain student characteristics were significantly associated with expressed high levels of satisfaction with clinical education (p<.0001). They were as follows: those students satisfied with clinical education showed high interest in physical therapy, were taught by clinical supervisors who were more involved in teaching, and were studying in institutions of their own choice. Recommendations aimed at improving clinical education are made on the basis of the discussion of thses fingings. 中重要的一環，評估學生對臨床實習之觀感應可作為改善臨床教育之參考。本研究以 問卷調查八十二學年度台灣地區大學四年級物理治療學生對實習課程之滿意度，同時 探討影響實習滿意度之因素。共178位六所不同學校的實習學生參與此調查。結果顯 示：只有2.8%的學生對實習之滿意度為低，超過半數( 51.7%)同學滿意度為中等，而 近半數(45.5%)同學對實習之滿意度為高。單變項及逐步回歸分析顯示：提高物理治 療臨床實習的品質。
