Formation of Characteristics of a Self-Actualizing Personality among Medical Students

9

Abstract

Improving the quality of physician training includes the development of professionally important qualities during the period of study at a university. Psychological and pedagogical support for medical university students has not been sufficiently developed and is rarely implemented. The work is aimed at studying the formation of the qualities of a self-actualizing personality among medical university students. The authors developed and substantiated a model of psychological and pedagogical support for the formation of a complex of personal protective skills for future doctors. The authors presented the results of an empirical study obtained on a sample of 180 5th year medical university students with specialties in General Medicine and Dentistry (90 people – experimental group participating in the experimental program, 90 people – control group). The researchers used the self-actualization test technique of E. Shostrom in adaptation of L.Ya. Gozman and M.V. Crozat. The results obtained indicate that indicators of the characteristics of a self-actualizing personality change statistically significantly after participation in the experimental program. These studies can be used as an effective means of professional development for future and practicing doctors.
