Emergency medicine (EM) residents reported receiving valuable feedback from medical education specialist who shadowed them during a shift, according to a study published in Advances in Medical Education and Practice.

Supervising EM physicians often find it difficult to evaluate EM residents in real-time during their shifts due to the demands of managing emergency departments. In the study, medical education specialist shadowed 12 EM residents once per academic year. The residents were evaluated on their nonmedical knowledge skills: accountability, multitasking, patient-centered communication, professionalism, and team management.

The specialists provided residents with Milestone scores and narrative feedback. Researchers found that five residents requested the feedback be included in their formal biannual reviews. Overall, the residents found the experience and subsequent feedback valuable.
