Particularity of Medical College Students’ Self-Awareness as Future Professionals

Sunnatova Rano I., Psychological Institute of Russian Academy of Education

The relevance of the research topic is conditioned by the importance of the scientific substantiation of the development of psychological and pedagogical activities used when accompanying college students in the process of their professional development. The purpose of our study was to investigate the particularity of medical college students’ self-awareness as future professionals. The hypothesis of the study was the assumption that such features of the educational activity subject as constructiveness of self-evaluating judgments, maturity of the self-regulation system, the emotionally positive and professionally conditioned state, as well as maturity of a student’s reflection on the methods of educational and future professional activity, can contribute to their professional development. The study sample involved 19 experts (experienced nurses and college teachers) during its first stage and students of 8 study groups (187 people aged from 15 to 17) during the second stage. We used the following techniques: modified semantic differential technique by Ch. Osgood; the socio-psychological adaptation scale by K. Rogers, N. Diamond adapted by T. V. Snegireva; ?Students’ understanding of ways of academic work? modified technique by M. A. Reznichenko, ?Study of the empathic trends level? technique by I. M. Yusupova. We established that maturity of the “I am a future professional” image is one of the conditions for satisfying the professions’ requirements and the effective realization of the potential in future professional activities. The obtained results are of practical importance for the development of psychological and pedagogical activities used in the course of accompanying college students in the process of their professional development.
