Table 1 Detailed description of the survey instrument

From: Prioritization in medical school simulation curriculum development using survey tools and desirability function: a pilot experiment

   Faculty Graduating medical students Junior doctors
Section 1 Question How much essential is for student at the end of medical school to perform the following abilities in an autonomous and automatic manner? How able you are in performing the following abilities in an autonomous and automatic manner? After graduation, how much did you feel able to perform the following abilities in an autonomous and automatic manner without additional training?
Linear numeric scale From 1, absolutely not essential to 9, absolutely essential From 1, absolutely not autonomous to 9, absolutely autonomous From 1, absolutely not able to 9, absolutely able
Aim To estimate level of consensus about the importance over the selected procedural skills To estimate the student actual level of mastery of the selected technical skills To assess procedural skill needs in the clinical practice and limit bias of student sample selection
(essentialness) (autonomy) (autonomy)
Section 2 Question Would it be useful to teach the following abilities with the use of simulation before the clinical rotations? Would it be useful to learn the following abilities with the use of simulation before the clinical rotations? Would it be useful to teach the following abilities with the use of simulation?
Linear numeric scale From 1, absolutely useless to 9, absolutely useful From 1, absolutely useless to 9, absolutely useful From 1, absolutely useless to 9, absolutely useful
Aim To estimate the benefit of teaching those procedural skills before the clinical rotation, possibly by the use of simulation (utility)
Section 3 Question Would you like to list any additional procedures that you feel to be important but were omitted from the initial list? Would you like to list any additional procedures that you feel to be important but were omitted from the initial list? Would you like to list any additional procedures that you feel to be important but were omitted from the initial list?
Aim To include any additional procedures that were felt to be important but omitted from the initial list.
