Abstract

Background: Research has demonstrated that residents and fellows (hereafter referred to as “residents”) play a significant role in the education of medical students. However, residents often feel unprepared to teach effectively and efficiently in busy clinical environments. Activity: The Residents as Educators Committee at the Medical College of Wisconsin sought to create an online module for residents to promote five key elements of teaching medical students in a busy clinical environment when time is limited. The module includes a narrated presentation highlighting key attributes of excellent clinical teachers as well as video clips presenting teaching pearls from award-winning resident educators. All incoming residents during the 2015–2016 academic year were required to view the module and complete a mandatory post-test, representing over 80 specialties and subspecialties. Results: A total of 325 residents viewed the module and took the required post-test. Of this group, 294 residents (91.4%) completed the optional evaluation. The module was rated highly in terms of content, format, and likelihood to change teaching practices. Discussion: The teaching provided by residents is vital to the success of future generations of medical students. The online module developed at the Medical College of Wisconsin may be useful to a larger audience of residents at other institutions. Additionally, further studies could determine the effectiveness of the module by examining the teaching evaluations of residents before and after viewing the module.
