Abstract
The aim of this study was to develop and to evaluate the students' satisfaction of the work experience learning program at the hospital setting for premedical stu-dents which was applied to 2005-2006. Program was developed in cooperation with hospital authority with reference to the similar cases of other universities. Se-lected programs included were both nurs-ing and administration sections of various services. Students’ satisfaction was examined by questionnaire, consist-ing of 13 items from 3 categories (contents & administrative procedures, communication skills & interpersonal interaction, and understanding hospital professions). The program was implemented for one week at the end of the premedical year 2 at the university hospital. Each student experienced only in one service section in 2005, but changed to two in 2006 for a week. Students responded positively to the satisfaction questionnaires in three categories (contents & administrative procedures, communication skills & interpersonal interaction, and understanding hospital professions). It is concluded that the experience-based learning program at the hospital setting was evaluated positively by students and also made students to understand a wide range of hospital professions and their roles.
