1. In this randomized controlled trial, increasing direct attending physician supervision did not reduce the rate of medical errors.
2. The increased direct attending supervision also resulted in interns speaking less during rounds and residents reporting feeling less efficient and that they had a decreased level of autonomy.
Evidence Rating Level:...
1. Milestone-based rating correlates with resident annual evaluation summary ratings but with a greater difference across training years that may account for graded developmental progression across residency training.
2. Milestone-based rating may better detect professionalism-related problems. Medical knowledge ratings in both systems correlate with certification examination scores.
Evidence Rating Level: 2...
1. Daily studying and textbook use were associated with higher ABSITE scores.
2. United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) 2 and Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) scores, as well as resident attitude, were also associated with overall American Board of Surgery In-Training Examination (ABSITE) performance.
Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good)
Study Rundown: Aside from clinical...
1. Only 23% of pediatric and medicine-pediatric residents studied achieved competency in neonatal intubation during their residency years.
2. Using Bayesian statistics, competency was defined as 75% likelihood of achieving successful intubation on next attempt, and translated into 4 previous cumulative successful intubations.
Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent)
