Correction to: Psychosocial issues discovered through reflective group dialogue between medical students

The original article was published in BMC Medical Education 2018 18:12


Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported that they had had mistakenly put the wrong IRB number in the last paragraph of the Methods section (as IRB NO.: IRB101–80 instead of IRB102–20 as given in the Ethics approval and consent to participate in Declarations). The corrected last paragraph on the Method section should read as follows:

“Ethical approval was obtained from the institutional review board at Buddhist Tzu Chi General Hospital (IRB102-20). Informed consent was received from all participating medical students.”

Furthermore, they found that the name of the first author (Shao-Yin Chu) was not listed in both sets of Author Comments (21 Nov 2017, 18 Dec 2017) in their paper’s Open Peer Review Reports (, where the correspondence author’s name (Chi-Wei Lin) was listed twice.
