Clinical faculty welcome the electronic medical record (EMR) to improve patient care. Once learners know how the system works, it becomes the attending’s responsibility to maximize the EMR as a teaching tool. We realize that faculty have a number of challenges to overcome to be able to comfortably teach. During this workshop participants will:

  • Observe and analyze challenging role plays around the use of the EMR
  • Consider the use of the RIME framework as part of the teaching process
  • Devise ways to use the EMR for basic science teaching, teaching with the patient and teaching away from the patient
  • Develop strategies to overcome barriers

By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Identify best practices in how to use the EMR in teaching medical students and residents both during and outside of patient encounters
  • Describe how to use the EMR to teach ACGME competencies
  • Analyze the barriers to teaching with the EMR
  • Provide tips for effectively using the EMR
