"Medical Education Day makes a statement of how important we value the educational mission here at Feinberg. Without the excellence of medical educators who work every day with our students and residents, we would not be producing high-quality physicians — so I appreciate that we pause and recognize educational excellence."
Walter Eppich, MD, PhD, Director of FAME

Systematic Practice Makes Perfect:  Learning Clinical Decision-Making

Health Professions Educators have been challenged to come up with more efficient and effect ways of instruction that both protect the safety of our patients and are learner centered.  Fortunately, there has been an explosion of new educational technologies that make possible creative new instructional approaches.  In this Grand Rounds, we will present an example of Cognitive Simulations in which we downloaded hundreds of radiology and ECG cases – so many cases that the learner has at their disposal the same experience it would otherwise take years to accumulate.  The vision is to have our learners practice on these cases in the same way a violinist would practice their scales:  practicing to mastery before attempting the performance that matters.  Using the results of our research where trainees of all levels of expertise participated, we will address questions like:  how do we know how many cases to offer?  Which cases in particular?  What feedback is optimal?  In what order?

At the completion of the lecture, participants will be able to:

  1. Define “Learning analytics” and how this new concept applies in cognitive simulation for Health Professions
  2. Describe the use of learning curves as a formative  assessment method for visual diagnosis and other types of deliberate practice
  3. Debate the role of cognitive simulations in health professions education curricula
