Happy New Year everyone! So if one of your New Year’s resolutions is to become a better bedside teacher, then this is the episode for you. This talk was given by Dr. Francis DeRoos from the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine at the Philadelphia Education Collaborative. He discusses the barriers, preparation, setting the stage, and tips and techniques in art of bedside teaching. I hope this inspires you on your next ED shift. If you have some great tips or techniques in bedside teaching please post in the comments section. I know this is something I struggle with and want to improve on and would love to hear what you all are doing. In addition, if you want to hear some more great advice on teaching on shift, check out EM Cases episode 98: Teaching on shift.
