Statement of need

The 2019 Stanford Bedside Teaching Symposium is an annual event which brings together medical educators from around the world to foster clinical teaching skills. We aim to build a sense of community among all those who attend and to increase both individual physical examination skills as well as the ability of those in attendance to teach and evaluate the clinical skills of their learners. We accomplish this with lectures by expert clinicians, live demonstrations and hands on workshops using both real and standardized patients. The content is aimed at early and mid-career physician educators but would also be appropriate for chief residents and senior residents looking for a career in medical education. This year we are excited to offer a poster session for attendees to present research and clinical cases that are related to bedside medicine and physical examination.

Target Audience

This national program is designed for physicians, fellows, and residents of all specialties.

learning objectives

At the conclusion of the activity, participants should be able to:

        • Perform a competent physical examination
        • Interpret examination data
        • Teach physical exam skills at a patient’s bedside
