Faculty Development Workshop - Teaching on the Run: Successful Teaching in the Informal Setting
Objective: The emergency department is filled with opportunities for teaching clinical medicine to medical students and resident physicians. However, as emergency departments across the world have become busier, teaching faculty have found it increasingly difficult to take time to teach. Further complicating matters is that teaching in busy environments is a skill not often taught to most faculty. In the course, the speaker will discuss several teaching techniques that can be employed during even the busiest shifts. The techniques are simple, practical, and ideal for the emergency department environment. At the conclusion of this presentation, each participant should be able to: 1. List some simple but effective teaching techniques in the busy clinical setting; 2. Describe some common pitfalls in current teaching techniques; and 3. Describe the components of the Microskills teaching method.
