Third-Year Medical Student Impressions of Resident Teaching in Simulated and Clinical Settings
We sought to determine whether simulation-based medical education using Trauma Evaluation and Management® (TEAM®) training module contributes to a positive impression of resident and faculty teaching. Qualitative and quantitative data regarding medical students’ experience of TEAM® training and their interaction with instructors were collected using anonymous surveys after the completion of the training module. A combination of yes or no responses, as well as classification of student confidence and perceptions on the utility of TEAM® training obtained using Likert-type scales, was evaluated. Qualitative data regarding student perceived strengths and weaknesses of this training and their perception of the quality of teaching were collected and analyzed. Most of the students felt the quality of teaching was better when compared with clinical settings, with 91 per cent of the respondents who provided additional feedback stating that residents were better teachers in the simulated setting. The application of TEAM® training in the surgical clerkship curriculum provides an environment to foster high-quality resident-led education.
