ABSTRACT:

The patient care domain contains the greatest number of competencies of the 7 domains of competence considered by pediatrics. Combined with a historical emphasis on the central nature of patient care to physician practice, it may be tempting to assume the number of competencies in this domain means it is the most important or is sufficient to stand alone. On the contrary, looking beyond patient care to the other domains is essential to meeting the Institute of Medicine goals of providing care that is safe, effective, efficient, patient centered, timely, and equitable.

ABSTRACT:

Introduction
Composing and delivering effective oral case presentations is an important skill for medical students and residents to learn, but the large variety of patients and presenting problems makes teaching and evaluating this skill complex. Few published tools are available for educators to use, and those that are described are not well-studied. The Patient Presentation Rating (PPR) tool can be used to evaluate oral case presentations, and was developed using focus groups of medical school educators from several medical disciplines including pediatrics,...
