Ectopic Pregnancy Interactive Model
|Ectopic pregnancy accounts for 2% of all first-trimester pregnancies, and it is the number one cause of maternal death in the first trimester. Women present with ectopic pregnancies across the nation, and it is imperative for future healthcare providers to identify these patients, rule out other diagnoses, and treat them in a time sensitive manner. Most educational materials regarding ectopic pregnancy are limited to textbooks and printed literature, yet the current generation of healthcare students is more responsive to interactive, feedback-driven, learning options. Studies regarding medical student education show that motivational processes are undervalued in curriculum development and stimulating motivation can influence outcomes of curriculum performance. It has been shown that intrinsic motivation (i.e., learning for the sake of learning and patients) leads to better performance and well being. Interactive modules enable students to make decisions without the repercussions of an incorrect answer, and they are encouraged to actively learn from mistakes and successes.
