Objective.-To assess educational practices, problems, and needs in the teaching of medical interviewing and interpersonal skills.
Design.-Questionnaires sent to curricular deans and introductory course leaders at all US medical schools in 1991.
Results.-Of 130 programs, 114 deans (88%) and 92 course directors (71 ;) responded.
Respondents indicated some advances since a similar survey in 1977: Virtually all medical schools now offer teaching in medical interviewing and interpersonal skills.
More faculty from a greater variety of disciplines are involved in this teaching.
Most programs feature observation and feedback of students'interviews with patients, and use a variety of effective teaching methods, including simulated patients and role-playing, both little used in 1977.
