Abstract

Certification is defined by the (National Organization for Competency Assurance) as the process by which a non- governmental agency grants recognition of competence to an individual who has met predetermined qualifications specified by that agency. The study was aimed to compare the teacher's perceptions of both (Traditional and Innovative ) schools regarding the medical certificate given to newly graduated doctors. A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted on Mosul & Nineveh and Tikrit medical schools during the period from 1st April till 30th June / 2013. 376 medical teachers were included in the study (243) from traditional school (Mosul & Nineveh) and (133) from innovative school (Tikrit ) after distributing a special questionnaire form and face to face interview was performed after receiving their written consent. The study show that both teachers from traditional and innovative medical schools disagree with giving the medical certificate directly after graduation (92-79.1%), (77- 57.8%) respectively. On the other hand, traditional medical teachers agree with the need for an advanced training program about 3-4 months after graduation and before participating in their job in comparison to (33- 42.8%) of innovative medical teachers who agree with 1-2 months period training program. Further intended specific educational training program concentrated on the clinical and ethical issues that is needed and essential for their future job.
