  • Implementation of a Revamped Surgical Pathology Rotation Model
    Christopher Felicelli, MD
    • The current surgical pathology rotation in the Pathology Residency is limited by histology delays, disruption in case continuity of care, and lack of graduated responsibility. The current model is a 3-day cycle which includes Grossing, Frozen Sections, and then Sign-out. Currently, residents readily do not receive cases on time, do not adequately have time to preview cases, and are not independently ordering immunohistochemical stains or making independent decisions for their cases.

      We devised a new surgical pathology daily schedule model consisting of a 6-day cycle, including 2 signout days and an additional frozen section day. This new cycle gives dedicated time to follow up cases to competition, learn interpretation of immunostains, and allows for graduated responsibility for senior residents. This new change more closely mirrors what independent real life practice is like, providing trainees with the necessary experience to be ready for independent practice.

      Surveys were distributed to residents to obtain information regarding how the original surgical pathology rotation assists in reaching ACGME milestones as well as internal departmental metrics. The survey will be redistributed after 6 months of the new surgical pathology rotation to determine the beneficial changes of the revamped curriculum.
  • Inclusion of Skin of Color in Medical Education and Residency Training: Opportunities for Growth and Advocacy
    Trisha Kaundinya, BS, BA
    Roopal Kundu, MD 
    • Cultural competency and cultural humility is a deep-seated barrier in dermatologic education across the medical training pipeline. Challenges exist at the level of curricular texts and clinical exposure: curricular texts significantly underrepresent darker skin tones, and clinical training programs have highly variable exposure to skin of color care. The barriers to text representation can be tackled from the trainee level by mandating equitable representation in lecture materials and building image libraries. The heterogeneity in clinical exposure to darker skin can be addressed by mandating skin of color training in all residency programs, recruiting more dermatologists of color, and bolstering the emphasis of skin of color in board certification and continuing medical education requirements of trainees and trained dermatologists, respectively.
  • Adult Congenital Heart Disease Emergency Management Simulation Curriculum
    Kali Hopkins, MD
    • Adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) is a burgeoning medical field with increasing numbers of complex patients and an insufficient number of trained providers. Urgent or emergent care often falls on providers who are not formally trained in ACHD. Immersive patient simulation has been shown to improve physician responses in medical emergencies, particularly low-frequency, high-stakes events, but no simulation curriculum for ACHD emergencies currently exists in the literature.

      A modified Delphi process was used to select three simulation case topics and to create checklists for assessing learners’ performances. Recruited fellows from multiple training programs individually completed three simulation cases. Assessment checklists were completed by a trained evaluator. Learners then asynchronously watched a voiced-over PowerPoint presentation and, upon completion, returned to the simulation laboratory to repeat the simulation cases. Five participants have completed the entire curriculum thus far. On Case A, learners scored 69% initially and improved to 89% on the second set of simulations. On Case B, learners scored 71% initially and improved to 81%. On Case C, learners scored 78% initially and improved to 86%. In conclusion, learners demonstrated gaps in knowledge that the simulation curriculum acutely narrows.
  • Video-Based Education Tools Improve Specimen Sampling Confidence in Pathology Trainees
    Yevgen Chornenkyy, MD, MSc
    • Pathology resident education has a steep learning curve due to lack of exposure to pathology training in medical school. As such, topics like specimen handling and sampling for adequate histologic analysis, staging, and diagnosis can be intimidating for new trainees. Specimen sampling is a procedural and manual task. In other procedural fields, succinct video materials are available to familiarize trainees with procedure and reduce errors. We developed a series of short (~10 minutes) specimen sampling (grossing) videos for PGY1 trainees. Trainees completed 3 surveys (July, January, and July) to evaluate their sampling confidence. Trainees using auxiliary sampling materials (ex: sampling manuals and video materials) had better procedural specimen sampling confidence ratings compared to those that did not use auxiliary materials (p<0.05). To our best knowledge, this is the first study that evaluates the use of short succinct videos to improve trainee specimen sampling confidence. Better specimen handling education is imperative, as it can decrease turn around time, reduce diagnostic errors, and improve patient care.
  • Mastering the Chest X-Ray: A Novel Remote Learning Curriculum for First-Year Residents
    Kristen Carroll, MD
    • As standard of care, internal medicine residents must routinely read, interpret, and react appropriately to diverse chest x-ray (CXR) findings, especially in the critical care setting. However, currently there is no formal radiographic curriculum for Northwestern internal medicine residents. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated a paradigm shift in medical education from in-person teaching to web-based remote learning. To fill this void, we have created a unique new remote (virtual) learning curriculum to teach common CXR findings to first-year residents.

      We created a randomized cohort study with cross-over design to evaluate the efficacy of our curriculum. As part of the curriculum, first-year internal medicine residents at Northwestern received 2-4 weekly CXRs focusing on a modified ”ABCDE” approach. Each weekly lesson was designed to be completed in 10-15 mins via smartphone or laptop. Multiple choice standardized assessments were administered throughout to assess efficacy and retention of material.

-------------------

  • Factors Influencing Surgeons’ Intraoperative Teaching Behaviors
    Egide Abahuje, MD, MHPEd
    • We observed 18 procedures involving 6 surgeons, 11 residents, and 7 medical students, over 37 hours. The most frequent teaching domains that surgeons used was instructional behaviors (N=28.2), followed by responding behaviors (N=4). Inquiry about resident’s prior experience or expectations, adaptation of surgeons’ teaching style to meet residents’ needs, and evaluation if residents met their expectations were the main themes that we identified from the qualitative analysis. Residents’ level of training and familiarity between residents and faculty affected the faculty teaching behaviors. There was no relationship between surgeons’ non-technical skills and the frequency of their teaching behaviors (Pearson=0.53, P-value=0.17).

      Conclusion: The teaching behaviors of the surgeons were variable. Surgeons’ awareness about residents’ competencies and what they expect to learn would guide faculty intraoperative teaching approaches. After operations, attending surgeons should assess what the residents learned and help them identify what they need to do improve.
  • Gender Equity Among Continuing Medical Education (CME) Planners and Speakers
    Clara Schroedl, MD, MS
    • Gender inequity exists within academic medicine and affects national conference leadership and speakership roles. We retrospectively examined all CME activities hosted over a yearlong period at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and performed descriptive statistics to determine gender differences among leadership and speakership roles, presence and number of conflicts of interest(s), and honorarium paid. Among 51 live, in-person CME activities from calendar year 2018, 36.5% (n= 303/831) of participants were women. If at least one woman was involved as a course director of an activity, significantly more women were invited as planning committee members or speakers (39.74% vs 28.32%, p = .048). Men reported significantly more conflicts of interest and were more likely to receive an honorarium. Including women as course directors and ensuring equity among honorarium paid are strategies that may improve equity and visibility of women in academic medicine.
  • Building a Topic-based Pediatric Hematopathology Curriculum for Hematopathology Fellows
    Shunyou Gong, MD, PhD
    • In the United States, the subspecialty training in Hematopathology requires various amounts of pediatric exposure among different institutions, and there is no commonly followed curriculum to ensure the quality of Pediatric Hematopathology training. To establish a standardized curriculum for Hematopathology fellows at Northwestern University, data about the lengths and contents of Pediatric Hematopathology rotations from various Hematopathology fellowship programs were analyzed, and the contents of the rotation were defined. A rotation curriculum composed of 10 blocks covering various core learning topics critical for practicing Pediatric Hematopathology was designed. Each block begins with a series of unknown slides to study, followed by discussions on the approaches towards a correct diagnosis, and then suggested readings to further develop the fellows’ diagnostic skills. This topic-based 10-block curriculum on Pediatric Hematopathology received very positive feedback from the trainees and may be useful for other institutions to improve and standardize their Pediatric Hematopathology core rotations.
  • Pediatric Resident’s Counseling of Patients with Epilepsy
    Heba Akbari, MD
    • Patients with epilepsy are at increased risk of seizure-related injuries and sudden unexpected (or unexplained) death in epilepsy (SUDEP). Given this increased risk, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends counseling patients on precautions that can be taken. It remains unclear what counseling, if any, pediatric trainees and primary care providers are comfortable providing these families. In this study, we aim to improve pediatric trainee's counseling of parents and children with epilepsy. We completed a needs assessment to determine the incidence of anticipatory guidance regarding seizure anticipatory guidance provided by pediatric residents. Our project also examined the familiarity of pediatric providers with SUDEP. We propose a curriculum outlining recommended anticipatory guidance and standardized material that can be provided to parents and used a reference for pediatric providers. We found that implementation of the curriculum changed the ways pediatric residents counseled patients with seizures and increased their knowledge of SUDEP.

Teaching Presence to Residents: A Workshop on Leadership


Residents are expected to be leaders in the roles they assume but are infrequently provided the tools to develop these leadership skills. ‘Leadership presence’ is a key aspect of leadership development and defined by self-control, authenticity, drive, service, respect and fundamentally asserting one’s technical skills and values.

Our workshop is designed to give medical educators a tangible approach to teaching leadership presence to residents. We will focus on two domains in which leadership presence can have a significant impact: 1. clinical presence specific to leading rounds, running a rapid response and running a code; 2. non-clinical or professional presence including program engagement, menteeship and job interviewing. Pulling from the science on leadership, the workshop will include interactive exercises that will help the participants become familiar with the concept of leadership presence and practice activities that they can use towards building a resident leadership curriculum.

MORNING SESSION 1
PRESENTATION

The Cost of Bullying, Mobbing, and Harassment to Organizations

The O&P profession, which started as a trade, has worked hard over the last few decades to progress as a medical profession by increasing the educational standards and improve clinical business models, yet in many ways, older behavior patterns still seem to persist. “Apprentice bullying,” or ritual hazing as a rite of passage in a male-dominated profession, still shows signs of existence (Riggall, 2017).
Since no peer-reviewed literature on the topic exists for O&P, it is necessary to establish a baseline upon which to build future research, and reveal the cause and effect of bullying, mobbing, and harassment in the profession. This research should appeal to business owners and managers to show that a positive work environment equals profit. Can businesses afford to have leadership that costs a company profit?
This model of research and information translates to the medical school and professional offices. I can further detail this for the medical school community.

--------------------------------

  • A Leadership Training Curriculum for Chief Residents and Fellows
    Aashish Didwania, MD
    • The leadership curriculum content was divided evenly between self-awareness training in the first half of the year (inward facing) and leading others (outward facing). Content was delivered through a brief reading list, self-assessment inventories, two 1:1 coaching sessions and 12 one-hour interactive seminars lead by two instructors from the Center for Leadership. Pre-post surveys on a five-point Likert scale asked learners to rate their self-awareness of strengths, growth, identification of strengths in others, teamwork, influence, adaptability, coping, and conflict resolution skills.

      The curriculum has run for three years with 13 participants in the first year, 14 in the second year, and 5 in 2020-21* (limited by pandemic). Aggregate survey scores rose from 3.19 on the pre-survey to 4.18 at mid-point to 4.56 at the post-curriculum survey. Items rated the highest at the end of the curriculum pertained to self-awareness of leadership capabilities and strengths (4.4 - 4.7), while coping and adaptability were rated lower (4.0 - 4.3)."

  • Intra-operative assessment of Non-Technical Skills for Surgeons: Challenges and Opportunity for Improvement
    Egide Abahuje, MD, MHPEd
    • Results: We observed 18 surgeries, involving 6 surgeons, 11 residents, and 1 fellow. The total observation time was 37 hours. We observed 9 open surgeries and 9 minimally invasive surgeries. Two independent observers assessed eight surgeries, while a single observer assessed 10 surgeries. The mean NOTSS score was 3.8 for situation awareness, 3.78 for decision-making, 3.71 for communication and teamwork, and 3.76 for leadership. The inter-rater reliability ranged between 0.65 and 0.80 for all NOTSS categories. The observers documented examples of effective non-technical skills behaviors and examples of behaviors that need improvement for each NOTSS category.

      Conclusion: The NOTSS rating tool is reliable to assess the surgeon’s non-technical skills in live surgery. This tool is useful to document effective and ineffective behaviors in order to provide constructive feedback to surgeons.
  • Using Grounded Theory to Illuminate and Improve: A Novel Conceptual Model for Anatomy-Related Outreach
    Angelique Duenas, PhD
    • Educational outreach programs are prominent within medical schools, as a means to foster interest in the sciences and promote awareness around health professions careers. Among these, anatomy as a discipline is often featured as an engaging and approachable subject for individuals of all educational levels. However, the overarching phenomena of such anatomy-related outreach has never been explored. This presentation will describe how grounded theory (GT) was used to explore the phenomena of anatomy outreach, from the perspective of anatomist facilitators around the globe. It will present an evidence-based, novel conceptual model for understanding and improving such outreach. It will also highlight the usability of GT in medical education research. In the midst of a pandemic, better understanding how processes in medical education function is particularly important in conceptualizing what the future of the field may look like, and how best to shape it.
  • Using Natural Language Processing to Aid in the Interpretation of Narrative Feedback: Challenges and Lessons Learned
    Christina Maimone, PhD
    • Natural language processing (NLP) has promise to improve both the utility and feasibility of narrative assessment review.  At Feinberg, longitudinal medical student portfolios contain hundreds of narrative text comments describing a student’s performance, strengths, and areas for improvement. Reviewing these comments in detail reveal performance trends that can help students grow and improve. While faculty and mentors gain experience assessing performance through the time-consuming process of reviewing dozens of portfolios a year, students do not have this opportunity, which may limit context and thus benefits gained from narrative feedback review.  NLP methods can provide some of this missing context after applying strategies to accurately apply text analysis methods to the narrative. However, the unique language and context of medical education feedback presents challenges. When data preparation and adaptation are done deliberately, NLP provides a feasible and useful mechanism to efficiently communicate meaningful data regarding student performance.

  • Feedback for Growth; How to Accept Feedback
    Leslie Rydberg, MD
    • This short session will cover the “Educational Alliance” to stress the importance of the learner-educator relationship to optimize feedback, as well as top tips for making the best use of feedback.

MORNING SESSION 2
WORKSHOP
10:15 – 11:30 a.m.
Treinens Conference Room

The Birth of a Book: How to Write a Book Proposal

This workshop will introduce participants to the practical, "nuts and bolts" involved in preparing and submitting a book proposal (prospectus) to a commercial or not-for-profit publisher. Participants will outline a book proposal; describe the book's intended audience (market); draft a PERT chart for book project management; and recognize the challenges of producing and editing a multi-author volume vs. a solo monograph. The workshop aims to remove the mystery from book authorship, production, and publication.

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will:
  1. Recognize that a book project is synthetic scholarship that usually originates from routine professional work;
  2. Draft a book proposal (prospectus) for a multi-author (edited) volume or a single author monograph;
  3. Acknowledge book publication sequelae:  rights and ownership, distribution, marketing, royalties, translation, subsequent editions, etc.

“She Should Smile More”: Gender Bias in Medical Education Assessment
MORNING SESSION 2
WORKSHOP
10:15 – 11:30 a.m.
Gray Seminar Room

“She Should Smile More”: Gender Bias in Medical Education Assessment

This workshop will focus on recognizing, reducing, and reframing gender biases.
Recognizing bias: Participants will take an online Implicit Association Test. We will discuss people’s reactions to the test/their results. We will discuss how to use the IAT to raise awareness of identity biases.
Reducing bias: Participants will be placed into small groups. Written comments will be provided for groups to discuss whether they contain gendered language or bias. Groups will rewrite comments to neutralize bias. We will then explore the exercise as a large group.
Reframing bias: A video will be shown of a committee evaluation where a faculty member makes a biased comment about a trainee. Attendees will then pair off and practice statements they might make to address the faculty member. After the role playing, the large group will discuss what phrases worked. Examples of possible scripts to use will be provided to attendees.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will:
  1. Participants will increase their understanding of how bias might present in health care educational assessments.
  2. Participants will take the Implicit Association Test (IAT) to identify gender biases they may hold.
  3. Participants will then dissect written comments from student assessments and decide whether they contain evidence of gender bias.
  4. Participants will role-play effective responses to biased comments to prepare them for encountering bias in the workplace and specifically in educational assessments.
Please note: It is recommended you bring a laptop if you wish to participate in the IAT

  • Level-Setting for the Inpatient Setting: Finding Standardization in Expectations on the Pediatric Endocrinology Rotation
    Sean DeLacey, MD
    • Resident education and experience can suffer from a lack of standardization and unclear expectations for performance during inpatient rotations. Clear expectation setting can be limited by frequent staffing changes as well as time limitations in the inpatient setting. The presentation will showcase the development and implementation of standardized resident expectations for the Pediatric Endocrinology inpatient rotation. The development of the expectations and resident guide included input from residents as well as Endocrine faculty. The intervention’s goal was to achieve an increased sense of satisfaction for both housestaff and supervising clinicians by creating a shared understanding of the rotation and the residents’ role in patient care. Future directions will be aimed at sustained delivery and consumption of expectations as well as standardization of education and feedback.
  • Association Between Internal Medicine Residency Applicant Characteristics and Performance on ACGME Milestones During Intern Year
    Blair Golden, MD
    • Methods: We examined the association between applicant characteristics and performance on ACGME Milestones during intern year at Northwestern University's internal medicine residency from 2013-2018. We used bivariate analysis and multivariable linear regression model to determine the association between individual factors and Milestone performance.

      Results: 114 residents (58%) were female, and 116 residents (59%) were White. Mean Step 1 and Step 2 CK scores were 245.5 (SD 12.0) and 258 (SD 10.8) respectively. Step 1 scores, Alpha Omega Alpha membership, medicine clerkship grades, and interview scores were not associated with Milestone performance in the bivariate analysis and were not included in the multivariable model. In the multivariable model, overall clerkship grades, ranking of the medical school, and year entering residency were significantly associated with Milestone performance (P ≤ .04).

      Conclusions: Most traditional metrics used in residency selection were not associated with early performance on ACGME Milestones during internal medicine residency.
  • Mastery Learning to Teach PM&R Procedure Skills
    Leslie Rydberg, MD
    • This session will include a discussion of mastery learning theory applied to a PM&R-specific procedure training course: electrodiagnostic testing. This will include a discussion about common roadblocks to implementation, such as checklist development where procedural consensus may not exist, the educational tool development, and designing deliberate practice sessions.
  • Role of Multi-Institutional Airway Course for Otolaryngology Training Programs
    Taher Valika, MD FACS FAAP
    • Medical education for residency training programs vary from institution to institution. Programs are well known for their strengths, but also for their weaknesses. To account for some of the shortcomings, training programs in Otolaryngology have been known to host “bootcamps.” These mini-courses provide brief but high-value education to their trainees as a means to ensure adequate training. We describe our process of developing a unique, multi-institutional “bootcamp,” allowing trainees from five Chicago-based Otolaryngology residency programs to participate at the same time. The feedback and data obtained revealed not only the value of a “bootcamp,” but the value of incorporating trainees of different years, specialties, and programs.
  • Integrating a Virtual Home Visit Curriculum into a Primary Care Rotation
    Rosanne Vasiloff, MD
    • With the growing number of geriatric and homebound individuals, it is important to expose medical students to the utility of home visits in Primary Care and Geriatrics. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we created a curriculum focused on virtual home visits, and integrated this into the M3 Integrative Primary Care (IPC) rotation. The curriculum included a lesson on Home Based Patient Care. Then the students were given a Virtual Home Visit Checklist on functional assessment, medication reconciliation, and a safety assessment. Students identified patients from their Education Centered Medical Homes or IPC and completed a virtual home visit with the patient using Doximity. In addition to completing the checklist, students wrote a reflection on their patient encounters. Our presentation will include a description of our Virtual Home Visit curriculum, as well as a review and discussion of the student reflections on their experiences regarding learning and the patient experience.

  • Physiatry 101: How to Think Like a Physiatrist
    Anne Goldring, MD
    • The purpose of this medical education project is to provide new second-year PM&R residents with a framework to think through inpatient rehab hospitalizations. At the beginning of the second year of a PM&R residency, each resident has just completed an internship, most often in internal medicine. As such, most residents often initially feel uncertain of their role in the rehab hospital setting. This lecture is designed to be given shortly after that transition, with the intention of teaching the new PM&R resident how to think like a physiatrist. In addition, given that exposure to PM&R varies widely during medical school, this lecture also seeks to provide the new residents with a uniform foundation in some of the basics of physiatry. To facilitate this learning process, this is an interactive, group-based lecture during which PGY2s work through patient cases with 3rd and 4th year PM&R residents.
  • Flipping Healthcare Pain Education for Interprofessional Competence
    Renee Manworren, PhD, APRN, FAAN
    • We retain 5% of what we hear, 50% of what we discuss, 75% of what we do, and 90% of what we teach. Through 3-5 flipped learning activities, interprofessional knowledge gaps, biases, and barriers to optimal pain care will be shared, tested, and bridged to promote understanding, empathy, and collaboration. demonstrate content mastery and application. Ideas are shared, key messages are reinforced, and understanding is assessed, discussed, demonstrated, and tested. These evidence-based strategies are easily translated to optimize face-to-face education time for inquiry, application, and to demonstrate content mastery.
  • Effective Teaching Strategies to Enhance a Growth Mindset
    Jennifer Ryan, PT, DPT, MS
    • What is the missing link between acquiring the knowledge of cardiovascular physiology and applying it to practice? The limited attention to CV risks and diseases is evidenced by research findings that general PT practitioners infrequently measure and interpret vital signs with exercise. Is the link more in our teaching methods than in honing the material we address? The scholarship of teaching and learning challenges us to use “self-regulated learning” to elevate learning to a metacognitive level, one which translates into lifelong practice. By offering students individualized feedback with encouragement and guidance to engage them in their learning plan and progress, the instructor and students became more connected and invested in the course. The presentation will speak to the teaching methods that led to an effective learning environment. Data related to the students' transition from a fixed to a growth mindset, and the improvement in student exam averages will be discussed.
  • Effective Phase 1 Medical Education: Lessons from the Pulmonary Module
    James Walter, MD
    • Student feedback is an essential component of the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine continuous quality improvement process. At the conclusion of each Phase 1 module, detailed student comments are summarized by a student review panel and then discussed collaboratively with Module, Element, and Thread leaders. These meetings provide an invaluable opportunity to both spotlight what worked well during a module as well as identify opportunities for improvement.

      This presentation will summarize changes made to the Pulmonary Module in response to several years of student review panel feedback. This will provide an opportunity to highlight components of effective curricular design and content delivery relevant to educators across all phases of the Feinberg curriculum.

Got 15? Try Faculty Development on the Fly: A Snippets Workshop for Microlearning

Faculty development (FD) is critical to the professional growth of medical educators. FD offerings are prevalent across academic institutions; however, faculty report they are unable to participate in these initiatives due to time limitations and competing priorities. The snippet FD approach can address these concerns but requires training for FD providers to be effectively used. This snippet train-the-trainer workshop incorporates multiple teaching modalities (e.g., lecture, demonstrations, structured small-group snippet development groups, and large-group debriefs) to provide learners with the skills they need to create and use this approach. We will define the key components of a faculty development (FD) snippet and explain how multimedia principles, cognitive load theory, and communities of practice contribute to the development of a snippet. Next, we will lead small groups of learns as they develop FD snippets that can satisfy ACGME requirements. Learners will debrief as we discuss facilitators and barriers to the snippet FD approach.

Learning Objectives
After participating in this workshop, attendees will be able to
  • Define the key components of a faculty development (FD) snippet.
  • Identify how the snippet can address the time limitations and competing priorities of faculty.
  • Develop an FD snippet that can satisfy ACGME requirements.
