SGP 1 : SEARCHING ( (SCORE Training on SPSS and Journal Systematic) - SCORE CIMSA FK UNS


SGP 1: SEARCHING (SCORE Training on SPSS) was conducted to acquire fundamental research principles through training in SPSS application. Research in the field of medicine aims to collect, analyze, and synthesize information or data that is used in medical-clinical, medical-social planning, or for the development of medical science itself. Statistics play a vital role in the development of knowledge through research. Therefore, it is essential for medical students to grasp the intricacies of SPSS, a powerful statistical analysis tool. A significant proportion of students perceive SPSS as a daunting program, believing that they must complete a course to use it effectively. Some may even have SPSS installed on their computers but struggle to operate it. A recent survey found that approximately 55% of medical students initially face challenges with SPSS. These challenges include difficulties in navigating the interface (20%), understanding statistical tests (25%), and interpreting results (10%). This data highlights the need for structured SPSS training in medical education.

In response to this need, SGP 1: SEARCHING was initiated as an educational project. It primarily consisted of a main session called "SPSS Training" conducted by Dr. Ardhia Fefrine Indarta, S.Ked, on August 27th, 2023. Before the start of thies series of activities, a pre-activity assessment was carried out for medical students of Faculty Medicine of UNS. Surprisingly, 51.14% of respondents indicated a lack of knowledge about SPSS, emphasizing the existing gap in understanding among medical students at the university. The project's goals are ambitious but essential: to increase medical students' research knowledge by 20% and improve their SPSS proficiency by the same margin.

During SGP 1: SEARCHING, participants were provided with statistical data samples, which they analyzed using SPSS. Impressively, 90% of participants demonstrated improved knowledge through post-test assessments, and the same percentage could effectively utilize SPSS by the end of the training. A total of 25 medical students engaged in SGP 1: SEARCHING, which proved highly beneficial. This project not only improved their research skills but also enhanced their ability to harness SPSS effectively. The overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants underscores the significance of incorporating SPSS training into the medical curriculum. With such success, it is highly recommended for continued implementation in the coming years, ensuring that medical students are well-prepared for the data-driven demands of modern medicine.
