BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Providing effective multisite didactic teaching in residency programs remains a challenge. There is limited evidence regarding the educational equivalency of the traditional and distance learning methods for delivery of didactics. We introduced a synchronous two-way audio and video Internet-transmitted distance learning methodology in two sites. The study assessed both residents' satisfaction and knowledge gain at the face-to-face lecture site as compared with the… Expand

Tables and Topics from this paper

Evaluation of three different methods of distance learning for postgraduate diagnostic imaging education: A pilot study.
TLDR
Residency-based distance education may be a beneficial adjunct to current methods of training, allowing for international collaboration and the strongest potential for interactive learning was found with Web conferencing and discussion boards, while case presentations rated very low in this regard. Expand
Evaluation of mobile learning: Students' experiences in a new rural-based medical school
TLDR
Improved design of physical facilities would enhance laptop use together with a more logical layout of the VLE, new computer-based resources and activities promoting interaction, and many suggestions for improvement. Expand
How does tele-learning compare with other forms of education delivery? A systematic review of tele-learning educational outcomes for health professionals.
TLDR
It is illustrated that tele-learning technologies not only enable distance learning opportunities, but achieve comparable learning outcomes to traditional face-to-face models. Expand
Comparing face-to-face, synchronous, and asynchronous learning: postgraduate dental resident preferences.
TLDR
The study found technology had a major impact on the efficacy of this curricular model, and suggested that the asynchronous format can be an effective way to teach a postgraduate course. Expand
Implementation of screen-capture video recordings of resident conferences in an academic radiology department: pilot experience.
TLDR
On the basis of its affordability, perceived usefulness by residents, and minimal impact on faculty members' preparation time, a recording system for didactic lectures has the potential to enhance residents' learning at only minimal costs to radiology departments. Expand
Megaconference: a radical approach to radiology resident education with full-day weekly conferences.
TLDR
Although residents' perceptions of the new model were predominantly positive or neutral, downsides included fewer cases per resident in case conferences and a less intimate conference setting. Expand
Evaluating the need for alternative didactic learning options in pediatric dental residency training.
TLDR
The survey results affirm the need for improvement in the didactic curriculum of pediatric dentistry residents and show that program directors and department chairs also feel that an alternative delivery method using DVD or online/web-based programs would be welcomed. Expand
Family Medicine Didactics Revisited.
TLDR
Family medicine didactics have evolved in the past 15 years with a notable increase in reliance upon core faculty and residents to lead conferences. Expand
PERCEPTIONS OF POST-GRADUATE MEDICAL STUDENTS, REGARDING EFFECTIVENESS OF TELEMEDICINE (TM) AS AN INSTRUCTIONAL TOOL
TLDR
The perceptions of overwhelming number of participants were in favor of telemedicine as an instructional tool, and participants stated that TM was more effective due to multidisciplinary approach. Expand
Synchronous Videoconferencing: Impact on Achievement of Medical Students
TLDR
Medical students that receive the majority of their lectures through synchronous videoconferencing perform no differently on national licensing examinations than students that attend live lectures at the site-of-origin. Expand
