Resumen

SILVA, María Guadalupe; ARBOLEDA CASTILLO, Joel  y  DIAZ NARVAEZ, Víctor Patricio. Empathic orientation in dental students of Universidad Central del Este. Odontoestomatología [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.22, pp.24-33. ISSN 1688-9339.

Purpose: To determine the empathetic orientation of dental school students. Methods: This is a non-experimental, descriptive, transversal and ex post facto cause and effect study. The population consisted of 284 dentistry students from the Universidad Central del Este (Dominican Republic). The sample size was of 239 subjects, who were enrolled in level 1º, 2º, 3º, 4º and 5º (years) during 2012. We applied a culturally adapted Spanish version of the Scale of Physician Empathy Jefferson (JSPE). Results: We analyzed variables year and gender, finding that year was highly significant (p <0.001), in contrast to gender (p> 0.05). This indicates that there are differences in empathetic orientation between years but not between genders. Conclusions: Further studies should be conducted that favor the observation of the variables studied. When possible, comparative analysis should be made to determine the impact of changes made at the academic programs and curricula
