Objective: Resident physicians have an important role in medical student teaching. There has been limited curriculum development in this area for general psychiatric residents. A 4-hour workshop for PGY-2 psychiatric residents was designed and implemented to improve residents' self-assessment of their knowledge of the medical student curriculum and core teaching skills. Methods: Residents completed pre- and postcourse self-assessments of their knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values about teaching. Descriptive statistics were obtained on pre- and postcourse data and were analyzed using t tests assuming unequal variance. Results: Following course participation, there was statistically significant improvement in residents' self-assessment of their knowledge of the medical student curriculum (p less than or equal to 0.001), their self-assessment regarding perception of peers' view of their teaching ability (p less than or equal to 0.02), and their perceived knowledge of various teaching methods (p less than or equal to 0.02). Conclusion: Our findings suggest that a brief workshop may enhance psychiatric residents' self-assessment of teaching knowledge and skills.
