dc.description.abstractAIMS: To assess the experiences in an established 1-week palliative care placement for final year medical students attending the University of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. DESIGN: A retrospective, mixed methodology, consecutive cohort. Student data collected included satisfaction feedback scores, open-ended questions and palliative medicine multiple-choice results before and after their 1-week placement. RESULTS: Although there were high satisfaction ratings and objective improvements (P < .001) seen in multiple-choice quiz scores, a subset did not improve. Practical issues such as prescribing, opioid use, and conversions were particularly valued by students. More teaching time and practical experience were requested. DISCUSSION: Given the importance of palliative care teaching within a medical degree, the results suggest continued development and review of palliative medical education are essentialen
