AbstractIntroduction: aim of the paper is to present results from the logbooks written by the first-year students of the Degree Programme in Medicine and Surgery in Orbassano (University of Torino), taking part to the IPE clerkship ‘Introduction to taking care’. Methods: sentiment analysis using R programme- Results: body contact and communication give the greater contribution to the negative emotions detected throughout the logbooks, while Advance Medical Simulation Centre (AMSC) and opinion show a higher prevalence of positive sentiments. A text analysis based on the relationships between words, show a relationship between medical and nursing students, professional figures and patients. Conslusions: AMSC is the protected setting in which students became more confident with basilar manouvres and its attendance should be implemented in the whole degree programme. Data for body contact and communication suggest that a training in these soft skills should be implemented.
