Abstract

Background: Internal medicine residents should be able to perform bedside procedures safely and efficiently. Description: We developed a human cadaver workshop for teaching internal medicine residents bedside procedures. The workshop consisted of lectures and hands-on experiences with cadavers covering thoracentesis, paracentesis, lumbar puncture, arthrocentesis, and bone marrow biopsy. A Web site was developed to provide technical support to residents on the medical wards after completion of the workshop. Evaluation: We successfully developed and implemented a procedure workshop for residents using human cadavers. The workshop improved mean scores on knowledge and procedure comfort level assessments. Residents demonstrated the skills required to safely complete each procedure. Conclusions: Our multidimensional educational intervention may be an effective tool for improving the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required for performing bedside procedures. More research needs to be done to determine if this workshop increases the number and proficiency of bedside diagnostic procedures performed by residents.
