The purpose of this study is to conduct a needs analysis in the areas of knowledge and motivation to develop a one-stop comprehensive resource guidebook that will help close knowledge and motivation gaps that prevent students in communities across the globe from achieving their future career aspirations.
The guidebook will provide students with in-depth details about the career of a medical physician. In addition, the guidebook seeks to provide students with the tools to develop their own personal strategic action plan that will serve as a roadmap to achieve their future career goal of becoming a medical physician.
We hope to learn what the knowledge needs (i.e., factual, conceptual, and procedural) and the solution to these knowledge needs are for becoming a medical physician. Additionally, we seek to learn what the motivation needs (i.e., task value, expectancy-value outcome, and self-efficacy) and the solution to these motivation needs are for becoming a medical physician.
