Only 31.9% of teachers thought that the activities achieved the desired purpose, nevertheless 100% of the students thought that they benefited from the activities and achieved perceptual knowledge of clinical work. 61.5% of students considered a great harvest from ＂early exposure to clinical practice＂, Conclusions The ＂early exposure to clinical practice＂ had an active effect on increasing the perceptual knowledge and stimulating the learning interest of students.
