  • Pubescent Angelica is generally used in musculoskeletal diseases of lower extremity, itching, external contraction (外感) and furuncle, with the effect of dispelling wind, draining dampness, dispersing the external (解表) and stopping pain. The disease parts of Treasured Mirror of Eastern Medicine (東醫寶鑑) contain 121 examples of the usage of Pubescent Angelica. Cases of musculoskeletal diseases and itching are mainly in the External Bodily Elements section (外形篇), and those of external contraction and furuncle are mainly in the Miscellaneous Disorder section (雜病篇). Internal Bodily Elements section (內景篇) has 10 prescriptions that involve Pubescent Angelica, in Dreams (2), Voice (1), Uterus (4), Parasites (1), and Feces (2) chapters. Their specific symptoms are insomnia and sleep paralysis (Dreams), loss of voice due to external contraction (Voice), uterine hemorrhage (Uterus), phthisis (Parasites), and constipation and diarrhea (Feces). It is not easy for students beginning their clinical training to link the effects of Pubescent Angelica and its actual usage, especially in the area of internal medicine. By Analyzing the whole cases of Pubescent Angelica in the Treasured Mirror, we found various usages out of reach of basic knowledge of the herb. Such method can be utilized not only in developing herbal knowledge-based products, but also in improving Korean medicine education, by enhancing the occupational competency bridging basic and clinical knowledge.

  • This paper focuses on the outcome-based curriculum of Inje University College of Medicine to describe our curriculum development process and results. Starting in 2006, we have revised the curriculum based on the competency-based clinical presentation curriculum. We stated clearly the learning outcomes from the social needs and educational goal of our university. We defined 8 exit outcomes and specified phase outcomes, course outcomes, lesson outcomes, and outcome objectives. By 2012, we identified 128 clinical presentations and 149 basic scientific concepts. Various evaluation and assessment methods and teaching-learning strategies were assigned to each outcome. Problem-based learning, standardized patient practice, and learning portfolios are the main strategies of our curriculum. We have performed a progress test to assess the level of achievement of students' outcomes. We have also collected feedback from students and faculty members about the curriculum, including every lesson, course, and the overall curriculum. To maintain this change of the curriculum, we reorganized the curriculum committee, educational faculty and teams, and administrative support system. To fine tune this curriculum, we have held three 3-day workshops on curriculum development and weekly meetings. We believe this is just the beginning of developing the curriculum of Inje University. Further upgrades will be necessary to continue to improve medical education.

The result of this study can be summarized as follows. The turnover intention was positively correlated with job stress. The factors which had effect on turnover intention were pay satisfaction, job stress and age. Based on the results of this study, it is necessary to develop a systematic program that reflects clinical characteristics and education in order to reduce the turnover intention of the nurse.
