1 THE CONSTRAINTS OF THE 80-HOUR WORK WEEK ON DIDACTIC TEACHING: MAXIMIZING EFFECTIVENESS AND SURGICAL RESIDENT SATISFACTION Jana Cole M.D., Ellen Farrokhi M.D., Karen Horvath M.D., Doug Brock PhD., Carlos Pellegrini M.D., Gary Mann M.D. University of Washington Department of Surgery

2 Introduction Service demands of the 80 hour work week can lead to erosion of time for didactic teaching. The challenge is to find new ways to improve education despite time constraints.

3 Introduction Resident dissatisfaction led us to critically evaluate and change our surgical didactic teaching curriculum.

4 UW General Surgery Residency 5-7yr University Hospital Program 7 categorical positions 75 residents 5 hospitals

5 Methods I Curriculum Time Change 1 hour per week Poor attendance All resident levels together PRE POST 4 hours per week Mandatory attendance Juniors (R1,2,3) and Seniors (R4,R5) alternate weeks

6 Time for Didactic Teaching 51 hrs/resident/yr 116 hrs/resident/yr R1,2,3 R4,5 71 hrs/resident/yr R1,2,3,4,5

7 Methods I Curriculum Teaching Change Junior (R1,2,3) Senior (R4,5) Literature review Evidence Based Technical Skills Problem Based ACGME Textbook Based Fundamentals Technical Skills Problem Based ACGME

8 Example Schedule May 4 R1-3 The Acute Abdomen Sabiston pp Faculty: Sinanan Resident: Wolf May 11 R4-5 Laprascopic Colectomy: New Implications Journal Articles posted on Resident Intranet Faculty: Horvath Resident: Drosch May 18 R1-3 Fluids and Electrolytes Sabiston pp Faculty:Nathens Resident:Suver May 25 R4-5 Morbid Obesity and Complications Journal Articles posted on Resident Intranet Faculty: Flum Resident:Chong

9 Purpose The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness and the resident satisfaction with a new didactic teaching curriculum.

10 Benchmarks Attendance (75%) Satisfaction (75% residents will be satisfied/very satisfied) ABSITE scores (>50 percentile)

11 Methods II Time point 1: prior to new curriculum Time point 2: 6 mos into new curriculum Time point 3: 1 year after starting new curriculum

12 Methods II: Survey Satisfaction Attendance/Faculty support ABSITE preparation Fund of knowledge/ Patient care Scale: 1 = strongly disagree 4 = strongly agree

13 Results

14 Attendance

15 Satisfaction with Didactic Teaching Program Scale: 1 = very dissatisfied 4 = very satisfied

16 Perceived ABSITE Preparation Scale: 1 = strongly disagree 4 = strongly agree

17 ABSITE Scores

18 Summary This study supports the effectiveness of our new surgical didactic curriculum. Attendance Resident Satisfaction Perceived ABSITE prep ABSITE scores

19 Conclusions This study illustrates that we can improve surgical education despite the time constraints of the 80 hour work week.
