To assess the effectiveness of a curriculum in telephone medicine taught to residents in two medical schools, objective structured clinical examinations were conducted before and after the curriculum was taught. Post-curriculum scores improved significantly, and gains were maintained six months. Residents felt significantly better able to manage patients' calls after two sessions. The curriculum was well received and effective. (Author/MSE)
