  • A Multi-modal Strategy for Teaching the Bedside Pulmonary Exam to Third Year Medicine Students. Melissa DiPetrilloMilestones: One data set collected for post test suggesting improved scores but not yet statistically significant. Developed self assessment bedside exam confidence evaluations, will analyze pre and post intervention (intervention=pulmonary exam, bedside teaching rounds and SOCs structured observed clinical skills). Submitted abstract for poster presentation. Challenges:Slow data collection, waiting for new group of medicine students to start up again. Limited knowledge of statistics myself to think about creative ways for data analysis.

    Future Directions: More data collection, hoping for more statistical difference looking at pre post confidence self assessment scales.
