USE OF PEER LEARNING MODEL - IN CLINICAL SKILLS TRAINING COURSE
Keywords:residents as teachers, residents as educators, peer teaching, near-peer teaching
Introduction: In medical education, as in other fields, the role of teacher is sometimes played by students and residents themselves. "Peer learning" during residency, so-called RAE model, can be effective for residents, and their role is very valuable for faculty too.
Objective: To find out how residents evaluate their work as teachers.
Methods: Questionnaires of residents’ (n-13) who worked at least one semester as so called “invited teachers” in the CSMS department of TSMU from 2019-2020 to 2021-2022 academic were analyzed.
Results: All of the respondents positively evaluated “peer-learning activity”. Great majority of residents (76,9% n=10) would strongly recommend to take part in such activity to their friends.
Conclusions: Residents like to teach clinical skills and express a great desire to continue cooperation with our department. We consider it acceptable to recruit and regularly equip the department with young personnel, as it has positive impact on faculty and resident teachers are well received by medical students in the classroom.
