As you are well aware, a major part of your responsibilities is to teach students, interns, and fellow residents. However, although you may feel confident in your patient care responsibilities, you may simultaneously feel woefully unprepared for the teaching duties you are asked to perform. This is to be expected since you have probably received little or no training in how to be an effective teacher.
A variety of workshops have been designed by the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Medical Students, Residents and Fellowship Trainees to improve residents’ abilities as teachers. The workshops are full of useful information. Because they are interactive and informal, most residents also feel they are a lot of fun.
The workshops in this training packet will cover leadership and organization skills, teaching techniques, and feedback.
