New testing program improves scores, knowledge retention for third-year internal medicine residents
Date:10/11/2011

g 2008-2009, and 59 residents in the three classes that preceded the use of the testing program, 2005-2007, served as controls.

"We analyzed the change in median individual percent correct and percentile scores between the first and second year and between the second and third year in both control and study groups," Mathis says. "For our main outcome, we compared the change in median individual percentile rank between the control and study groups between the second- and third-year testing opportunities."

Mathis says that after undergoing the testing and the patient care experience, the study group showed a significant increase (8.5 percentile points) in their score between the second- and third-year examinations.

"This was better than the increase of 1 percentile point in the control group," he says. "These results mean that exposure to a broad range of medical information in a structured learning environment provided the necessary feedback and tools for individual improvement in medical knowledge, hopefully leading to higher ABIM certification scores and better long-term clinical performance for these physicians as well as better experiences for patients."
