Doherty, Eva M; O'Boyle, Ciaran; Shannon, William; McGee, Hannah; Bury, Gerard
<p>The original article is available at <a href=""></a></p> <p>Good communication with patients is now recognised as the cornerstone in effective medical practice. Medical students do not automatically acquire the art of good communication through clinical training. A new course to promote the development of communication skills at undergraduate level is described. The course was provided at the juncture between pre-clinical and clinical training. Course evaluation illustrated the value of the course as perceived by students themselves and highlighted the areas of greatest need for students in communication skills training.</p>
