Study Details

Study Description

Brief Summary

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on medical education is real but little known.

ENT interns were directly affected by the management of Covid-19 patients (performing surgical tracheostomies), many conferences and trainings were cancelled, their usual hospital activity deeply reshuffled.

Although each student has a personal story of the impact of Covid-19 on their training, there is no doubt that the effects of Covid-19 are felt at scale. This study aims to investigate the effect of the pandemic on the medical and surgical training of ENT and Cervico-Facial Surgery interns in France from November 2019 to May 2021 (Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Grand Est, Ile de France, Nouvelle Aquitaine and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur areas). A questionnaire will be sent by mail to ENT interns in France to assess the impact of Covid-19 on the training of ENT interns in France.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures

  1. To evaluate the impact of Covid-19 on the training of ENT interns in France [before and during the acute phase of the pandemic from November 2019 to May 2021 (ordinal categorical primary endpoint)]

    Evaluate the reduction in training time (practical and theoretical) as a proportion of usual training time between 2 periods: before and during the acute phase of the pandemic from November 2019 to May

Secondary Outcome Measures

  1. Assess interregional disparities in the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on ENT interns' training time. [before and during the acute phase of the pandemic, from November 2019 to May 2021]

    Comparison of the reduction of time dedicated to training (practical and theoretical) between different regions of France. Percentage of time spent in the operating room, duty, on-call, DES course, IUD Comparison of the reduction of time dedicated to training (practical and theoretical) between different regions of France. Percentage of time spent in the operating room, duty, on-call, DES course, IUD.

  2. Evaluate strategies implemented to compensate for block closure and theoretical course cancellations between waves [Before and during the acute phase of the pandemic, from November 2019 to May 2021]

    Descriptive qualitative analysis of the strategies implemented.

  3. Evaluate interregional disparities in training time for ENT interns outside the Covid-19 period. [Before and during the acute phase of the pandemic, from November 2019 to May 2021]

    Comparison of the time dedicated to training (practical and theoretical) between different regions of France over a given period (pre-Covid19)
