Well-being in trainee and faculty physicians
Conclusions: Although an issue for all physicians, well-being impacts trainees more, and differently, than faculty and well-being improves during training from resident to fellow to faculty. Survey responses suggest that interventions should focus on workplace satisfaction over workplace environment areas and further limitations in duty hours are unlikely to improve physician well-being.PMID:34252014 | DOI:10.1080/10872981.2021.1950107 (Source: Medical Education Online)

Essential yet Ill-defined: leadership roles to support fourth-year medical students in pediatrics
CONCLUSIONS: As specialty-specific experiences have grown in the fourth year of medical school, there is an increasing demand for faculty leadership separate from direction of the pediatric clerkship. In this national survey, pediatric educators expressed a need for additional protected time to lead fourth-year specific activities. Similar findings in other disciplines would support advocating for more protected time and expanded roles for specialty-specific fourth-year directors nationally.PMID:34232843 | DOI:10.1080/10872981.2021.1950108 (Source: Medical Education Online)

A single center evaluation of applicant experiences in virtual interviews across eight internal medicine subspecialty fellowship programs
Med Educ Online. 2021 Dec;26(1):1946237. doi: 10.1080/10872981.2021.1946237.ABSTRACTDue to the COVID-19 pandemic, most graduate medical education (GME) training programs conducted virtual interviews for prospective trainees during the 2020-2021 application cycle. Many internal medicine (IM) subspecialty fellowship programs hosted virtual interviews for the first time with little published data to guide best practices.To evaluate how IM subspecialty fellowship applicants perceived the virtual interview day experience.We designed a 38-item questionnaire that was sent via email to applicants in eight IM subspecialty programs ...

Long experience with a web-based, interactive, conversational virtual patient case simulation for medical students' evaluation: comparison with oral examination
Med Educ Online. 2021 Dec;26(1):1946896. doi: 10.1080/10872981.2021.1946896.ABSTRACTVirtual patients (VP) have been advocated as reliable tools for teaching and evaluating clinical skills and competence. We have developed an internet-based, OSCE-like, conversational VP system designed both for training and assessment of medical students. The system, that encompasses complete patient management from H&P to diagnostic procedures and treatment, has now been used regularly during the clerkship of internal medicine. The present article describes the system and compares assessments undertaken with the VP-system over the last...

Development of Kampo (traditional Japanese medicine)e-learning program: evaluation of the flipped classroom for medical students
This study developed a Kampo e-learning program and verified the effectiveness of a flipped classroom using Kampo e-learning. The Kampo e-learning Committee determined three courses and assigned an administrator for each. The administrators appointed lecturers who developed Kampo e-learning lessons. Physicians, pharmacists, medical students, and pharmacy students were asked to participate in the e-learning program, and their comments and suggestions were collected after program completion. The flipped classroom was evaluated by implementing Kampo e-learning in the Kampo session with fourth-year students at Keio University ...

Undergraduate medical education amid COVID-19: a qualitative analysis of enablers and barriers to acquiring competencies in distant learning using focus groups
Med Educ Online. 2021 Dec;26(1):1940765. doi: 10.1080/10872981.2021.1940765.ABSTRACTDue to comprehensive social distancing measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic, medical faculties worldwide have made a virtue of necessity in resorting to online teaching. Medical faculties grapple with how to convey clinical competencies to students in this context. There is a need for research not only to map but also to explain the effect of these secondary measures on students' learning and mental wellbeing. During a period of ongoing comprehensive social distancing measures in Germany, we translated a competency-based curriculum inc...

The active feedback program: bringing medical students out of the shadows
Med Educ Online. 2021 Dec;26(1):1939842. doi: 10.1080/10872981.2021.1939842.ABSTRACTDespite many advances in medical education, medical students continue to mostly shadow on inpatient rotations like Neurology. They seldom receive face-to-face feedback or mentorship from attending physicians. This results from not training attending physicians how to integrate medical students into clinical activities in a way that does not detract from patient rounds. The 'active feedback program' is a framework for inpatient rotations that immerses medical students in clinical activities with the attending physician providing mentorship a...

The strength of our stories: a qualitative analysis of a multi-institutional GME storytelling event
Conclusion: The large turnout and themes identified show how an oral storytelling event can be a powerful tool to build community in graduate medical education. Qualitative analysis from multiple sources obtained both in real-time at the event and upon deeper reflection afterwards showed the event positively impacted the well-being of participants and that oral storytelling events can be an effective approach for promoting resilience in GME.PMID:34096480 | DOI:10.1080/10872981.2021.1929798 (Source: Medical Education Online)
