For Residents

Resident Teaching Skills Manual

This manual, created by Jeffrey E. Pettit, PhD, Office of Consultation and Research in Medical Education, University of Iowa, is intended to be a resource to assist residents in their day-to-day teaching encounters. It is intended to: 1) provide “how – to” guidelines for the novice and experienced teaching resident, 2) identify additional resources [with information pertinent to educating others], and 3) be a quick reference guide for common teaching situations. (Note: this resource is available to the UAMS community only, therefore you must be on-campus or enter your UAMS global login information when prompted.)
