Clinical Competence; Curriculum; Education, Graduate; Internal Medicine; Learning; Evidence-Based Practice
Dr. Green’s research interests include medical education curriculum development, evaluation of clinical competence, evidence-based practice, and lifelong self-directed learning in medicine. In particular, he has investigated strategies to integrate evidence based medicine into internal medicine training through trials of educational interventions; national surveys of residency programs; systematic reviews of curricula and evaluation instruments; a prospective study of the epidemiology of residents’ medical information needs; and a qualitative analysis of barriers to answering clinical questions.
As a Kimball Scholar at the American Board of Internal Medicine, Dr Green has combined evidence-based practice “technology” and insights from physician learning studies in an internet-based “Point of Care Clinical Question” module. Physicians document the characteristics, context, pursuit, and application of their clinical questions in a fashion that facilitates reflection and evidence-based decision-making. This module will become a practice-based alternative to the current multiple choice Self Evaluation Modules in the Maintenance of Certification process. In addition, Dr. Green is collaborating with ABIM scientists on related research on the psychometric properties of the module, the characteristics of physicians’ information needs and information seeking behavior, and the association of self-directed learning behaviors with several self-directed learning “readiness” evaluation instruments.
Working with and ACGME / ABIM task force, Dr. Green is explicating the ACGME competencies through developmental behavioral "milestones," for standardized resident evaluation and program accreditation.
