Jennifer O'Toole, Lauren Solan, Jennifer Di Rocco, Angela Bier, Karen Jerardi
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss the current issues and barriers in medical education within the context of the new duty hours standards
  2. Articulate educational best practices from other institutions
  3. Develop an innovative inpatient educational strategy
  4. Acquire skills to enhance faculty development at one s institution to improve education in the context of the new duty hours standard

With the institution of the new 2011 ACGME duty hour standards it is critical that academic hospitalist faculty and residency programs evolve their structured and unstructured educational techniques to ensure the effective training of future pediatricians. Examining the experiences of two large pediatric residency programs during implementation of the 2011 duty hour standards, this workshop will provide data on the effects seen on various aspects of inpatient education. Under the guidance of a diverse group of pediatric hospitalists with graduate training in medical education, workshop participants will have the opportunity to participate in small group discussions that will allow them to share experiences and develop strategies to innovate their teaching skills in the era of shift-work. An overview of some innovative educational strategies will also be shared, including the Academic Half Day, E-learning, inpatient ILPs and Medutainment. During the workshop, participants will have an opportunity to develop their own plan for an innovative educational strategy or program for potential implementation on return to their home institutions.
