Simulations To Ease Student-to-Resident Transition

Lots of new information on simulations, mostly for early residents. Both procedural (Cohen, Augustine) and non-procedural (Cohen, Miloslavsky) simulations increase learner confidence and/or competence for trained tasks. Even better, for faculty-poor settings, senior residents are perceived as excellent preceptors for these sessions (Cooper, Miloslavsky). — Laura Willett, MD
