Resident doctors have an important and integral responsibility of teaching a number of individuals. The purpose of this study was to measure the effectiveness of the University of Saskatchewan's resident-as-teacher training course--Teaching Improvement Project Systems (TIPS). Residents who attended the TIPS course from January, 2010 through June, 2013, were recorded in microteaching sessions before the course as well as during Day 1 and Day 2 of TIPS. Resident teaching skills improved significantly as a result of the TIPS course, especially from pre-TIPS to Day 1. Further research is required to study to what extent and under what circumstances these skills are implemented after completion of the course.
