Editor’s note: This is the first article in a two-part series about how to develop a resident teacher training program.

Faculty members are not the only teachers you have on staff. Residents often play an important role in educating medical students and junior residents in various patient care settings, but not every resident is an effective teacher—and that is something programs need to address.

The amount of training that programs give residents on how to be a better teacher varies greatly, says Joyce Wipf, MD, a professor of medicine and former associate program director at the University of Washington in Seattle.
