A Day in the Life of an Internal Medicine Resident - A Time Study: What Is Changed from First to Third Year?

Adv Med Educ Pract 2020 30;11:253-258. Epub 2020 Mar 30.

Department of Internal Medicine, Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine and Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA, USA.

Background: In the past decade, internal medicine residencies have undergone major changes in competency-based assessments, work-hour restrictions and the implementation of the electronic medical record. The aim of this study is to compare a typical day of a first year post-graduate (PGY1) to that of a third year post-graduate (PGY3) internal medicine resident and examine if the differences in their days demonstrate the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) desired progression towards competency-based milestones and unsupervised practice.

Methods: We conducted an observational time study documenting 14,103 minutes, 9 major categories, and 17 subcategories while shadowing 10 internal medicine PGY1s and 10 PGY3s during inpatient, non-call days. Read More

Using High-Fidelity Simulation to Teach Ethics Related Non-Technical Skills: Description of an Innovative Model.

Adv Med Educ Pract 2020 26;11:247-251. Epub 2020 Mar 26.

Department of Anesthesiology, Centre d'apprentissage des Attitudes et Habiletés Cliniques (CAAHC), Université de Montréal, Faculty of Medicine, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

This article describes a high-fidelity (Hi-Fi) simulation-based innovative educational strategy intended to introduce anesthesiology residents to key ethical considerations and how they apply to their practice. Three Hi-Fi simulation scenarios involving situations with various ethical issues are described with their debriefing objectives and the trainees' subjective feedback. Three high-fidelity simulation scenarios are described: (a) teaching critical incident disclosure, (b) disclosing and discussing patient awareness during general anesthesia, and (c) would physicians override a do-not-resuscitate (DNR) order if the cause of a cardiac arrest is iatrogenic? We used Hi-Fi simulation in an innovative way to teach these principles of ethics. Read More
