    Article - En anglais


    To determine the pedagogic characteristics of a clinical conference for senior pediatric residents and selected faculty.

    Participants and Setting 

    Nineteen senior pediatric residents and 14 selected faculty members participated in a daily clinical conference at Children's Hospital, Boston, Mass.


    Analysis of videotapes generated the following three topics : What facilitated learning ?

    What was learned ?

    What makes the process of teaching and learning effective ?

    In the questionnaire resients indicated that learning was facilitated by resident-faculty interactions (19/19), faculty participation (19/19), and information resources (12/19).

    Content learned included information (16/19), approach to diagnosis (11/19), management strategies (14/19), and different perspective (14/19).

    An effective process of teaching and learning was attributed to case-based resident initiated discussion (19/19), facilitation by the chief resident (16/19), and noncompetitive discussions in which expert faculty played a nondominant role (19/19).

    Faculty identified identical factors relating to all three themes.


    The pedagogic effectiveness of this conference was attributed to a resident-centered, case-based learning format and a discussion process characterized by noncompetitive interactions among faculty and residents, strong group facilitation by the chief resident, and participation of faculty experts in a nondominant role.
