Dr. Kaminsky focuses on practical teaching strategies with Dr. Liu and Dr. Gallegos, covering topics from self-directed learning opportunities, debriefing and brief pearls in the form of digestible teaching moments.
Residents play an important role in medical education to our peers, students, nurses and patients. Internal medicine, surgery and just about every other specialty enjoys the luxury of down-time to reflect on recent presentations or formal didactics, often after rounds. The continuous and often frantic nature of emergency medicine limits our ability to plan for formal teaching. As emergency physicians we are obligated to know the worst of the worst in all medical specialties. But when do we find the time to teach and learn while at work?
Medicine has long embraced the
Socratic method of teaching at the bedside -- however there is way
more to teaching than “PIMP” questions!

Rule number one: Teaching on-the-fly, while fluid, requires some pre-planning or forethought.
Strategies for teaching on the fly

Teaching on the fly isn’t always about creating material “on the fly.” Preparation to develop areas of focus, create a repository of teaching points, and exploring of different teaching styles can facilitate deciding to teach on the spot.
