Experimental: standardized patients with VRNET
The medical students examine the standardized patients who have neurological deficits which presented by VRNET.
Other: Standard patients with VRNET
In group of standard patients with VRNET, the medical students examine the standard patient of neurologic deficits. When they examine, they get some information of neurologic signs via the VRNET which presents neurologic deficits directly by alternating facial expressions. The students should interpret that signs to have a diagnosis.
Placebo Comparator: standardized patients
The medical students examine the standardized patients who have neurological deficits which presented by words or pictures.
Other: standard patients
In group of standard patients, those neurological deficits are presented only by words or pictures which are not realistic.
- Neurologic physical exam(NPE) score [ Time Frame: after 2 weeks clinical clerkship rotation. ]NPE score is consist of 6 neurologic examination parts; cranial nerve, motor, sensory, cerebellar function, gait. Each part has 1 points, so NPE score ranges from 0 to 6. NPE score of students is evaluated by neurologist viewing video clips which recorded during the last day of 2 weeks clerkship rotation.
- Satisfaction of students for VRNET [ Time Frame: after 2 weeks clinical clerkship rotation. ]
Satisfaction of VRNET are evaluated by students' answer to the question below with Likert scale (0 to 5) after completion examination of standard patient.
"I am satisfied with VRNET for neurologic examination training. 0 (not at all)---1----2----3-----4-----5 (very helpful)"
- Reality of VRNET by students [ Time Frame: after 2 weeks clinical clerkship rotation. ]
Reality of VRNET are evaluated by students' answer to the question below with Likert scale (0 to 5) after completion examination of standard patient.
"VRNET is very realistic. 0 (not at all)---1----2----3-----4-----5 (very realistic)"
- Evaluation of students by standardized patients [ Time Frame: after 2 weeks clinical clerkship rotation. ]
Evaluation of students by standard patients is also using Likert scale (0 to 5) based on the pre-made check lists.
"How do you feel as a standard patient that the student did good job?" 0 (not at all)---1----2----3-----4-----5 (very competent)
