ACP HospitalistTalking About Trainee Treatment

Today’s understanding is that “pimping” on rounds and similar tactics tend to inhibit rather than promote learning. Yet residents and fellows, and to a lesser extent medical students, continue to complain of demeaning interactions in medical learning environments. Icahn School of Medicine instituted a system to take in reports of such behavior in an attempt to improve the educational environment there. In their model, the instructor is informed that an individual perceived a degrading interaction. The purpose is to allow the instructor to be aware and make changes as needed. But institutions who want to follow the example of the school need to be prepared to allocate the needed resources to do this follow up if the system is to have any benefit.
