Medical schools in the United States now graduate some 18,000 students a year, and most of them will continue their medical education at one of the more than 1,000 teaching hospitals. Time constraints, complex patients, and the involvement of multiple disciplines in the care of patients have necessitated changes in medical education on the units. Unlike prior research, this project focused on the context in which learning happens and designated the team as the focus of research. The authors spent time with 12 outstanding attendings and their teams in order to provide detailed descriptions of the specific strategies, methods, and even language that the attendings use to teach their learners not only about medicine but also about how to care for patients.
