Teacher-training for hospital residents improves medical students' education, UCI study shows

s. The sessions stressed "hands-on" practice, with individualized, structured feedback by peers and faculty. After a brief didactic presentation, residents took turns teaching their peers using a structured teaching case designed for each specific module such as giving feedback, lecturing, leading discussions, bedside teaching, inpatient teaching, instruction in medical charting, and teaching a clinical procedure.

Other medical schools offer teaching aid for residents, but Morrison's study is distinctive for describing detailed instructional methods that other medical schools can easily adopt, and for measuring improvement in teaching skills with a validated and reliable examination. A national survey in 2000 by Morrison and colleagues showed that approximately 50 percent of residency programs offered some type of formal teaching skills training to residents; however, one-time lecture and workshop formats predominated, and less than 5 percent used objective methods like Morrison's to measure efficacy of the training interventions with residents.

"Residencies as we know them now are constantly evolving, with the current major trend mandating the setting of clearer learning expectations for resident competency and providing objective evidence of their accomplishment," said Dr. John R. Boker, director of research in medical education in the UCI College of Medicine and study co-author. "Teaching ability is one such competency that is attaining more prominence as a requirement for residency program accreditation, and Dr. Morrison's intervention provides a model for addressing this requirement."
