Description

Work-hour restrictions, increased work load and traditional subjective methods of training are some of the challenges that traditional models of residency training are currently facing in the United States. A time and resource efficient based model of medical training is needed while ensuring the competency of physicians and safety of patients. Studies have shown that a learner-centered model has worked well in other fields of education; however the field of medicine is still lagging behind. This form of personalized training actively involves the learners which serve following objectives.

Identify their learning needs and establishes goals and objectives of the training.

  • The trainers guide and help learners achieve those goals using continued objective methods of evaluation and providing formative feedback.
  • An opportunity to track their professional development and remediation of any shortcomings during the process.
  • A collaborative environment of learning is generated in which students equally share the responsibility for the learning process.
  • Their confidence is fostered allowing a graduated increase in the responsibilities ultimately leading to an independent competent practice.

The purpose of this workshop is to increase understanding of newer concepts of personalized training and learners’ autonomy and how these concepts can be practiced by the participants in their organizations with successful outcomes using examples from our practice at the Johns Hopkins Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.
