Simulation-based medical education (SBME) is a promising medium to train students on managing ASAs.
Human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination rates lag behind other vaccines, primarily because of weak provider recommendations, and are associated with nearly 30,000 new cancer diagnoses a year. Educating medical students about HPV using active, team-centered learning may increase assimilation of information and may increase vaccination rates. A team-based learning (TBL)

A "flipped classroom" model, in which residents prepare ahead of time for mentored topic discussions, has potential advantages. METHODS: We implemented a curriculum consisting of topics distributed across the specialty. Weekly,
BACKGROUND: Otologic diseases are common and associated with significant health care costs. While accurate diagnosis relies on physical exam, existing studies have highlighted a lack of comfort among trainees with regards to otoscopy. As such, dedicated otoscopy teaching time was incorporated into the undergraduate medical curriculum in the form of a
