Objective: Resident physicians have an important role in medical student teaching. There has been limited curriculum development in this area for general psychiatric residents. A 4-hour workshop for PGY-2 psychiatric residents was designed and implemented to improve residents’ self-assessment of their knowledge of the medical student curriculum and core teaching skills. Methods: Residents completed pre- and postcourse self-assessments of their knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values about teaching. Descriptive statistics were obtained on pre- and postcourse data and were analyzed using t tests assuming unequal variance. Results: Following course participation, there was statistically significant improvement in residents’ self-assessment of their knowledge of the medical student curriculum (p≤0.001), their self-assessment regarding perception of peers’ view of their teaching ability (p≤0.02), and their perceived knowledge of various teaching methods (p≤0.02). Conclusion: Our findings suggest that a brief workshop may enhance psychiatric residents’ self-assessment of teaching knowledge and skills.
