PURPOSES: The goals of this study are to examine pediatric clerkships' current DBP teaching methods and to identify barriers and solutions to recommended curriculum implementation. METHODS: Electronic survey was conducted with COMSEP-member pediatric clerkship directors...

This article is the fourth in a series by the Council on Medical Student Education in Pediatrics (COMSEP) reviewing the critical attributes and skills of superb clinical teachers. The previous article in this series reviewed the vital importance of direct observation of students.(1) The purpose of this article is to describe how to use the information gained from the direct observation, namely the role of feedback. Although too often used interchangeably, encouragement, evaluation, and feedback are quite distinct...

Great clinical teachers occupy a unique and powerful role in the education of medical students. Their noncognitive and cognitive actions and behaviors influence future student behaviors and career choices and, most importantly, result in a future generation of physicians who are equipped to care for children. Although we continue to have difficulty defining the critical characteristics of a great clinical teacher, identifying such a teacher is easy: they are the ones to whom students and residents flock. If we return to a teacher we each remember as having made the clinical experience memorable and inspired us to work a little harder, it is the person, not necessarily the content, that we remember...

The reader may wonder, "What is COMSEP, and how does an article from COMSEP affect me?" COMSEP, the Council on Medical Student Education in Pediatrics, is a community of pediatric clerkship directors and other educators whose mission is to improve the health of children and their families by advancing the art and science of medical student education in pediatrics.(1) This is the first in what is envisioned to be a quarterly report from the COMSEP to the readership of Pediatrics. In writing these articles, we hope to accomplish 3 key objectives...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: One mission of all academic medical centers is the education of medical students. The resources allocated to the oversight of this mission vary. The status of pediatric undergraduate medical education and the role of the pediatric clerkship director (PCD) was published in 1995. We sought to provide an updated description by surveying current North American PCDs. METHODS: A survey was designed by members of the Council on Medical Student Education in Pediatrics and administered via the Internet...
