Direct Observation and Feedback at the Bedside: Raising the Bar in a Post-Flexner World

Date: Wednesday, April 30, 2014  Save to Calendar

Time: 8:30 AM To 10:00 AM

Location: Price 251

Event Description:
Direct observation and immediate feedback has been a mainstay of modern medical education, being one of the developments arising from the Flexner Report in 1910. Yet, how to implement a systematic process of observation and feedback that effectively teaches clinical skills has been an on-going challenge for many medical educators. This session, with the use of videos of students’ clinical performance, will provide a facilitated forum for discussion of the benefits and challenges of various approaches to using direct observation and feedback as a major component of teaching clinical skills at the bedside, i.e. the medical interview, physical examination techniques, oral presentation and critical thinking.

Target Audience:
All faculty
