Abstract

Learning environment in any medical school is found to be important in determining students’ academic success. The present study was undertaken to study the perceptions of academic achievers and under-achievers (clinical phase) of Melaka Manipal Medical College (MMMC) (Manipal campus), India, using the Dundee Ready Education Environment Measure (DREEM) Inventory. The DREEM Inventory was administered to 108 medical students in the clinical phase of the curriculum. Data analysis revealed that the overall DREEM score of the academic under-achievers was high, compared to the academic achievers. While comparing the gender-wise perceptions, the mean score for female students was found to be more in both groups.
