Working with Senior Residents: How to get past “You’re doing great!”DOI: https://doi.org/10.21980/J8D93J
ABSTRACT: Audience: This content is intended for emergency medicine faculty. Introduction: Faculty at our institution noted that it can be easy to identify and address the knowledge gaps of junior learners. However, they often find different skills are needed when precepting senior residents, a sentiment shared by faculty at other institutions.1 To foster the skills needed for lifelong learning and
