Abstract

This research provides evidence that medical students across Western Australia log core paediatric cases relevant to future clinical practice, with a variety of case complexities across all healthcare settings. Differences between cases logged by rural and urban students are minor, and appropriate to student learning as they reflect the desired learning outcomes and distinct learning environments. Opportunities for medical educators to provide feedback occurred in more than half of cases logged. Regular review and timely feedback on student logs by medical educators are strongly recommended to address feedback learning opportunities and review student reflection.
