Abstract

The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) has recently emphasized the development of humanistic skills in trainees. Using video technology, transition outpatient visits of first-year house officers in a primary care training program were evaluated for the presence or absence of nine humanistic skills before and after the initiation of an instructional program to reinforce the skills.

The preintervention group performed a mean of 1.38 skills while the postintervention group performed a mean of 3.56 skills, a statistically significant improvement (p
