Improving Clinical Teaching: Focus on Residents.
Edwards, Janine C.; And Others
Information on the development and evaluation of a workshop to improve residents' clinical teaching at the Louisiana State University School of Medicine is presented. Over a 2-year period, residents from all specialties participated in the workshop. A majority of residents rated the workshop favorably, and 70 percent requested additional training. For 97 residents who provided before/after ratings of their teaching skills, post-workshop ratings were significantly higher than pre-workshop ratings. Ratings of 38 residents by 257 third-year medical students showed pre- to post- workshop improvement on the following dimensions of clinical teaching: organization/clarity, clinical skills, knowledge/analytical ability, and provision of direction and feedback. Additional training to improve 68 residents' clinical teaching behaviors is being developed and evaluated in a 3-year experimental study. Videotapes of resident/student case presentations are used to instruct residents, and trained raters measure the teaching behaviors observed by videotapes. Structured interviews will also be conducted to explore residents' awareness and motivation regarding teaching. A pyramid training system that would involve teachers, residents, and students is recommended. (SW)
