To find out how trust is formed between senior residents and their junior colleagues, researchers interviewed nearly 500 internal medicine residents from five programs and recently published their findings in Academic Medicine. According to the interviews, the following six factors go into the formation of trust in senior residents toward their junior colleagues:
•    The ability for residents to remotely monitor their colleagues by accessing an EHR.
•    Showing competence by demonstrating knowledge, devising and implementing care plans, and responding to issues
•    Reviewing junior residents work by covering for them on their days off
•    Patient characteristics such as the number of patients and how sick they are
•    Propensity to make errors
•    The ability to prioritize and follow through on daily tasks
