Teaching Skills Program for Residents
Each year the Department of Medical Education and the Office of Graduate Medical Education provide a series of teaching skills workshops for resident physicians. The focus of this program is on improving the learning experiences of our medical students. The workshops were developed by the Faculty Development section of the Department of Medical Education and are led by educators experienced in faculty development and instruction. Attendance is mandatory for all PGY1 and PGY2 residents unless their training program offers an alternative approved teaching skills course.
The first workshop, provided to all new residents during resident orientation in June, introduces the residents to the principles of brief clinical teaching and giving effective feedback. Subsequent workshops reinforce this material and focus on additional teaching skills such as teaching at the bedside, giving effective feedback, teaching procedural skills, teaching through sign-outs, teaching professionalism, and teaching and leading rounds. Each resident attends workshops according to his or her interests. Workshops are 1.5 hours long, and are attended by mixed groups of about 10-20 residents from different specialties.
