A series of vignettes developed by the faculty and residents of Jefferson Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University for the annual course, "Teaching Residents to Teach."

A new senior teaching resident new to her ward service on an internal medicine teaching rotation approaches the same encounter in 4 ways, with both positive and negative results. Each act includes up to 4 scenes:

  1. preparation at the nurses' station;
  2. introduction to the patient prior to examination;
  3. bedside interaction; and
  4. follow-up discussion outside the patient's room.

The encounter involves "Mr. Jones," a young man who is admitted to the hospital with syncope and a systolic murmur. The examples are intended to fuel discussion among faculty and residents about appropriate behaviors.

The video was produced in 2001 by TJU Medical Media Services Video Production Division, a unit of Academic Information Services & Research.
