Medicine Grand Rounds, Chief Residents’ Year in Review
May 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In the department’s annual Chief Residents’ Lecture, Hannah Coletti, Grace Prince, Alison Raybould, Benjamin Robey and Benjamin Sines will present innovative projects and ideas:
Grace Prince Evaluation of a Humanities Curriculum to Promote Higher Level Clinical Reasoning at Internal Medicine Morning Report: Results of a Qualitative Analysis Within medical education, the humanities are frequently used to teach communication, promote physician wellness, and help physicians grasp the interpersonal context of their work. Dr. Prince will describe the implementation of an innovative curriculum, using the humanities as a tool to catalyze higher level clinical reasoning.
Hannah Coletti and Benjamin Robey A Professional Development Curriculum for Residents Internal Medicine and combined Med-Peds residents have transitioned successfully to fellowship and employment opportunities following graduation. However, our trainees have cited more robust support for career development and mentorship as an area for improvement. A Professional Development Curriculum was designed and launched this year to more proactively address these needs. Drs. Coletti and Robey will present baseline resident insights on existing gaps, and describe strategies for implementing change.
Alison Raybould and Benjamin Sines Optimal Team Structure on Residency Teaching Services While duty hours have been a focus of medical educators and the ACGME in recent years, the ideal allocation of time for education, provision of care, and patient safety has yet to be established. Academic centers with training programs similar to UNC’s have trialed different ward team structures to identify the optimal learning environment. With the creation of UNC Hillsborough Hospital and the introduction of a different team structure there, this question was investigated within the context of our own Medicine residency. Drs. Raybould and Sines will present their findings and identify areas for potential reform.
