Emergency Medicine Faculty Development Workshops


On-shift performance feedback provided to residents is an essential part of the work of Emergency Medicine faculty, yet literature and a recently conducted needs assessment suggests this complex interaction is not completely understood. In particular, there is a deficiency between what resident versus attending physicians’ expectations are related to on-shift feedback, as well as best practices in how to provide the feedback in the most appropriate manner. Faculty physicians cite a deficiency of knowledge in this area, and desire for further training on this topic.

This activity aims to close the practice gap in faculty knowledge, competency, and performance in providing on-shift feedback. Faculty will be provided with a foundation of knowledge in evidence-based feedback techniques during this interactive course. The goal of the course is to enhance faculty skills in providing feedback, and specifically in administering the CORD Standardized Direct Observational Assessment Tool (SDOT) Emergency Medicine Outcomes Assessment tool to enhance on-shift feedback.
