Residents as Teachers

A major part of a resident's responsibilities (~25%) is to teach students, interns, and fellow residents (Busari JO, 2002). While they may feel confident in their patient care responsibilities, they may simultaneously feel unprepared for the teaching duties. Not only is resident as teachers training helpful to residents, it is highly recommended by ACGME and necessary for LCME accreditation.

At an institution offering a medical education program, residents who supervise or teach medical students must prepared for their roles in teaching and assessment.
