Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: August 29, 2018)
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.

Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: February 8, 2019)
  • 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)

  • Satisfaction of students for VRNET [ Time Frame: after 2 weeks clinical clerkship rotation. ]
    Satisfaction and reality of VRNET are evaluated by students with Likert scale(0 to 5) after completion examination of standard patient.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Developing of Virtual Reality Based Neurologic Examination Teaching Tool(VRNET)
Official Title  ICMJE Developing of Virtual Reality Based Neurologic Examination Teaching Tool(VRNET)
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of the virtual reality based neurologic examination teaching tool(VRNET) for medical students. VRNET is a new teaching tool for neurologic examinations by offering different neurologic signs of the face, with which medical students can experience more realistic patients.
Detailed Description Not Provided
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Not Applicable
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Intervention Model Description:
  1. standardized patients with VRNET
  2. standardized patients
Masking: Double (Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description:
investigator, outcome assessors will be blinded for group allocation.
Primary Purpose: Other
Condition  ICMJE Medical Students
Intervention  ICMJE
  • 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.
  • Other: standard patients
    In group of standard patients, those neurological deficits are presented only by words or pictures which are not realistic.
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Experimental: standardized patients with VRNET
    The medical students examine the standardized patients who have neurological deficits which presented by VRNET.
    Intervention: Other: Standard patients with VRNET
  • Placebo Comparator: standardized patients
    The medical students examine the standardized patients who have neurological deficits which presented by words or pictures.
    Intervention: Other: standard patients
