Background Rotation is an important component of the standardized training of general practitioners(STGP) in China.However,the rotation program is developed only according to the guidance of training syllabus rather than an overall management strategy.Objective To improve the rotation program of the STGP in Shenzhen People’s Hospital,increasing the competencies of trainees.Methods All individuals(n=42) who participated in the STGP conducted by Department of General Practice,Shenzhen People’s Hospital from 2015 to 2016 were enrolled.Their evaluations and suggestions on current rotation program were collected by group interview between January and February,2017.According to the interview results,a questionnaire was made and was used in a survey for collecting the trainees’ satisfaction with and improvement suggestions for current rotation program in March 2017.Rotation program was improved by the General Practice Teaching and Research Group and the Teaching Department of Shenzhen People’s Hospital,according to the results of group interview and questionnaire survey,and its effectiveness after improvement was evaluated by the trainees in January 2018 in another survey with the same questionnaire.Results The rotation program was improved as follows:rotations to wards of Hematology and ICU Departments were canceled;increasing the outpatient teaching time in Endocrinology,Rheumatism and Immunology,Gynecology and Obstetrics Departments;the learning time in both Cardiovascular and Emergency Departments was increased to 3 months;learning in Department of General Practice for a month was added;rotations to 5 surgical departments(Hepatobiliary Surgery,Thyroid and Breast Surgery,Anorectal Surgery,Spinal Surgery,and Hand Microsurgery) were canceled,but the learning time in Gastrointestinal Surgery and Orthopedics Department was increased to a month.The improved program achieved a higher level of trainees’ satisfaction(P<0.05).Conclusion When making a rotation program,clinical training bases are suggested to give priority to general practice,and the learning in general practice department should be highlighted.In addition,the learning time in different departments should be allocated rationally.
