Abstract

Purpose: Survey nationally curriculum and physician trainee exposure to CP. Methods: Surveys were developed and sent to each Internal Medicine Clerkship and Residency Program Director in the United States. Results: 86% of responding clerkships (n=53) and 39% of residencies (n= 104) reported no training (see graph). 12% of medical schools have mandatory, and 56% have elective, CP during clinical training. Based on a l(y)-5(n) Likert scale, the majority of programs would incorporate educational programs (clerkespecially those regarding adverse drug reactions. (Figure Presented) Conclusion: Nationally, future physicians have limited exposure to CP. Clinical educators recognize this as a weakness in their programs and would increase future physician CP training if educational modules or expertise were available.
