Internal Medicine Lecture Series

The Internal Medicine Lecture Series is a resident founded, resident run FOAMed (Free Open Access Medical Education) project by, supported by the Internal Medicine Residency, Medicine Department and the University of Louisville. The content is free to all who wish to learn.

Using survey items from Kern et al. (1985), 192 former residents rated their preparation in, and the importance of, three content areas of their residency training (“basic skill and knowledge areas,” “allied medical disciplines,” and “areas related to the practice of medicine”). Mean ratings replicated those reported by Kern et al. (r=0.70 to 0.97, p<0.004). Using additional data about current practice patterns, ratings by general internists were compared with ratings by subspecialists. Both groups identified basic skill and knowledge areas as most important and felt that many areas related to practice management had been underempbasized. Most allied medical disciplines, however, were more important to generalists. Exposure to non-internal medicine areas seems important for residents considering a primary care career, but not for those considering subspecialization. However, all residents may benefit from increased emphasis on basic clinical skills and practice management. Program directors may want to address these issues, given the recent decline in applications to internal medicine programs.

    I have observed that in the world these days, video games include the latest popularity with kids of all ages. Occasionally it may be extremely hard to drag young kids away from the games. If you want the best of both worlds, there are plenty of educational gaming activities for kids. Great post.
