I read with great interest the results of the study by Deane and Murphy1 regarding learning strategies of medical students in a clinical rotation of obstetrics and gynecology.
Of particular interest was the finding that “obtaining a good examination result was the most significant reason why the attachment was important to students.”1 The authors concluded that medical educators should consider strategies that foster more intrinsic drivers of student learning and more student-oriented learning resources and activities.
