About

WHAT IS LEARNING FROM TEACHING RESIDENTS? SJHMC awards AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ to physician faculty in recognition of the learning that occurs in preparing for, or resulting from interacting, teaching and assessing the competence of St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center (SJHMC) residents. > The credit applies to learning associated with teaching, NOT to the teaching activity itself. > The phrase “preparation and teach­ing” means that the learning is taking place in the preparation stage for the purpose of teaching. > Neither preparation nor teaching alone are sufficient in and of themselves for the purpose of claiming this CME credit. RESIDENT ENCOUNTERS OR TEACHING SESSIONS INVOLVE A VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO: > Formal presentations to residents (excluding grand rounds) > Development of cases or clinical problems > Supervising clinical or simulated activities > Teaching clinical or other skills > Assessing learner performance (clinical or simulated settings) > Mentoring QI or PI projects > Mentoring or undertaking scholarly activities HOW IS CME CREDIT CALCULATED FOR LEARNING FROM TEACHING? > The time spent with the resident, utilizing what the faculty member learned, is the metric used for determining credit. > If the physician does not prepare to teach, and therefore does not learn anything, spending time with residents by itself is not sufficient to receive credit. > Thus, if there is no learning that can be identified in the preparation stage, there is no credit for spending time with residents. CME ACCREDITATION SJHMC is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. SJHMC designates this live activity for a maximum of 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ per 1 hour of interaction with residents in a SJHMC residency program. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. DISCLOSURE All those involved in the development of this activity have disclosed that they have no relevant relationships with any commercial interest.
