Teaching Procedural Skills in Medicine: Adapting Theory to Practice
September 28, 2017
Warren Alpert Medical School | 222 Richmond St., Providence, RI | Room 275

Graduate medical education has undergone substantial changes in the past 15 years, including the institution of a reduced, 80-hour workweek, a change in focus to discipline specific core competencies, and an emphasis on patient safety and error free practice. In light of these changes, the ability to define competent performance in practice has quickly become a major focus for all members of the American Board of Medical Specialties.
In the current era, where it is essential we provide the public with proof of competency in practice, we need to implement a more structured approach to our procedural skills curriculum. This curriculum should be one that is grounded in adult learning theory, includes continuous assessment of procedural skills, provides real-time constructive feedback, and provides learners with opportunities for deliberate practice in both the simulation and clinical environment to achieve competency in their performance.
This session will focus on the Core Area of Clinical Teaching.
Please see attached brochure for program schedule and details.
