Resident as Teacher Academy Interest Group Symposium: Teaching and Learning from Consultation - RSVP 
Thursday, February 25, 2016// 3:00-5:00 PM
TMEC RM 128 

The frequency of consultation in inpatient medicine is increasing. Therefore, the specialty consultation represents an important opportunity for resident work-based learning. Teaching in the setting of inpatient consultation may also have a broad reaching impact by improving patient care, enhancing critical thinking by our learners, empowering the primary team to participate in care decisions and improving the teaching skills of future faculty. However, teaching in the setting of consultation can be challenging due to multiple factors.

This symposium will examine factors affecting the consult interaction, propose interventions to enhance the consult interaction, particularly between residents and fellows and focus on two skills important for teaching during consultation 1) how to ask effective questions to engage and assess the learner and 2) utilize a framework for teaching in the time-limited setting of consultation.

The symposium will provide participant trainees skills that can be used to teach during consultation and will help program directors and consultants teach such skills to trainees.

Interspecialty consultation provides a unique opportunity for fellows to teach residents. This session explores how effective questions can assist in the rapid assessment of consulting residents' fund of knowledge. Questions are also an essential vehicle to engendering critical thinking. The aim of this interactive session is to provide participants with strategies for effective use of questions in the setting of consultation.

By the end of the session, attendees will be able to:

  1. Ask questions to assess learners in a time limited setting.
  2. Describe the value of open-ended questions.
  3. Practice the use of questions to support and assess critical thinking.

PARTNER framework for Teaching During Consultation 

Eli Miloslavsky, MD, Instructor in Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital 
Susan Burgin, DTM&H, MB, BCh, Assistant Professor of Dermatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center 

This presentation will introduce participants to the PARTNER framework, which was developed to facilitate interspecialty teaching in the consultation setting. The PARTNER framework is based on adult learning theory principles and incorporates the microskills of clinical teaching (Neher). Participants will have a chance to model the framework in this interactive session.

By the end of the session, attendees will be able to:

  1. Describe an approach to teaching during consultation.
  2. Apply the framework to consultation scenarios
