Essential Component of Preventive Medicine

Vaccination represents an essential component of preventive medicine. Despite the well-established benefits of immunization, missed-opportunities for vaccination remain a public health concern. Previous research shows that physician attitudes towards vaccines can directly influence patient decisions to accept or reject vaccination. Inadequate physician knowledge regarding vaccines and patient eligibility for vaccination can further reduce vaccination coverage rates. Experience with vaccines prior to and during medical school may impact future physician recommendations about immunizations to patients. A recent study investigating the immunization requirements of US health professional schools reported that 100% of surveyed medical schools required students to receive specified vaccines prior to matriculation. During their clinical years, medical students may discuss and recommend vaccines as part of their pediatric and internal medicine clerkships, which occur sometime in their third or fourth year. Studies conducted on medical students in Canada and Germany identified the importance of assessing student knowledge of vaccines to support the creation of targeted educational interventions to help prepare students for patient interactions related to immunization
