Complementing Operating Room Teaching With Video-Based Coaching

  • April 1, 2017

In this era of reduced resident operative time and autonomy, intraoperative education may be supplemented by video-based coaching. CRICO was a co-funder of this study to see if post hoc video-based coaching is an effective modality for teaching residents to operate.


Conclusions and Relevance:  Video-based coaching is a novel and feasible modality for supplementing intraoperative learning. Objective evaluation demonstrates that video-based coaching may be particularly useful for teaching higher-level concepts, such as decision making, and for individualizing instruction and feedback to each resident.
