Description

The purpose of this study is to describe the evaluation of a sexual history-taking curriculum and correlates of student performance during a Clinical Skills Assessment. Reading assignments, small group discussions, a Saturday Sex workshop and performance on a Clinical Skills Assessment were evaluated. Students most favorably rated the workshop and least favorably rated the reading assignments. Eighty-four percent of students asked at least one sexual history question on the Clinical Skills Assessment. We were unable to identify any independent predictors of sexual history-taking behavior.
