The Most Effective and Responsible Clinical Training Techniques in Medicine
Alternative Types of Learning in Clinical Specialty-Interest Areas of Family-Practice Medicine (Second Edition)
“If you believe that the broad aim of clinical instruction is about teaching medical procedures, you’re wrong. Whether an attending, a faculty member, or a another type of clinical expert, believing this can hinder the learning process.”
Even though UMI published the first edition nearly two decades ago, Gary DePaul’s research findings and implications are even more relevant today.
From interviews with family-practice specialists from the Carle Clinic Association, Dr. DePaul discovered certain training techniques to be more effective at building specialty-interest area expertise while responsibly protecting patient safety and care. In addition, he discovered how a three-way, interlocking dilemma influences how specialists develop their specialty-interest area.
