      BACKGROUND: Although simulation-based training is becoming widespread in surgical education and research supports its use, one major limitation is cost. Until now, little has been published on the costs of simulation in residency training. At the University of Toronto, a novel competency-based curriculum in orthopaedic surgery has been implemented for training selected residents, which makes extensive use of simulation. Despite the benefits of this intensive approach to simulation, there ...

      BACKGROUND: Recent reports from both accreditation bodies in North America highlight problems with current assessment practices in postgraduate medical training. Previous work has shown that educators might be reluctant to report poor performance or fail underperforming trainees. This study explores the barriers perceived by medical educators to providing more meaningful assessment and feedback to trainees.

      METHODS: Semistructured interviews were conducted with 22 physician educators. ...

      OBJECTIVE: The present study investigated the role of mental skills in surgery through the unique lens of current surgeons who had previously served as Olympic athletes, elite musicians, or expert military personnel.

      BACKGROUND: Recent work has demonstrated great potential for mental skills training in surgery. However, as a field, we lag far behind other high-performance domains that explicitly train and practice mental skills to promote optimal performance. Surgery stands to benefit ...

      As residency training programmes around the globe move towards competency-based medical education (CBME), there is a need to review current teaching and assessment practices as they relate to education in orthopaedic trauma. Assessment is the cornerstone of CBME, as it not only helps to determine when a trainee is fit to practice independently, but it also provides feedback on performance and guides the development of competence. Although a standardised core knowledge base for trauma ...

      Valid and reliable techniques for assessing performance are essential to surgical education, especially with the emergence of competency-based frameworks. Despite this, there is a paucity of adequate tools for the evaluation of skills required during joint replacement surgery. In this scoping review, we examine current methods for assessing surgeons' competency in joint replacement procedures in both simulated and clinical environments. The ability of many of the tools currently in use ...

      OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to develop, implement, and evaluate the effectiveness of an assessment framework aimed at improving formative feedback practices in a Canadian orthopaedic postgraduate training program.

      METHODS: Tool development began in 2014 and took place in 4 phases, each building upon the previous and informing the next. The reliability, validity, and educational impact of the tools were assessed on an ongoing basis, and changes were made accordingly.

      RESULTS: ...

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Video-based assessment of residents' surgical skills may offer several advantages over direct observations of clinical performance in terms of objectivity, time-efficiency, and feasibility. Although video-based assessment is becoming more common in surgical training, a broad understanding of its utility is lacking. This scoping review explores video-based assessment in surgical training and presents the evidence supporting its use.

      BACKGROUND: Competency-based education and simulation are being used more frequently in surgical skills curricula. We explored a novel student-led learning paradigm, which allows trainees to become more active participants in the learning process while maintaining expert guidance and supervision.

      METHODS: Twelve first-year orthopedic residents were randomized to either a student-led (SL) or a traditional instructor-led group during an intensive, month-long, laboratory-based technical ...

      BACKGROUND: Physician stress impacts patient care and provider wellness. Researchers have largely used reductionist approaches to study stress (e.g. focusing on physiology). This study sought to understand surgeons' subjective experiences of stress in the workplace, using a holistic perspective.

      METHODS: Using a constructivist grounded theory methodology, semi-structured interviews were conducted with 24 staff surgeons at the University of Toronto, purposively sampled for specialties and ...

      INTRODUCTION: The state of cognitive flow, colloquially known as being 'in the zone', has been linked with enhanced performance, happiness, career satisfaction and decreased burnout. However, the concept has not been adopted strongly in health care training, continuing professional development, or daily practice. A systematic review with a narrative synthesis was undertaken to map the evidence for flow in health care.

      METHODS: A search was conducted in MEDLINE, PsycInfo, and EMBASE in ...

      INTRODUCTION: Past research has demonstrated the positive effects of visual and performing arts on health professionals' observational acuity and associated diagnostic skills, well-being and professional identity. However, to date, the use of arts for the development of non-technical skills, such as teamwork and communication, has not been studied thoroughly.

      METHODS: In partnership with a community print and media arts organisation, Centre[3], we used a phenomenological approach to ...

      The transition from medical school to residency is often considered the most difficult year for both teachers and learners. Previous work suggests incorporating a boot camp at the onset of residency can be a highly effective mechanism for easing the transition between medical school and residency by improving trainees’ medical knowledge, confidence, and procedural and technical skills before they start to care for patients. As other programs look to adopt this training method, medical ...
