The use of outcome measures to evaluate clinical rheumatology curriculum changes.
Five years ago we sought to change the comprehensive educational program of our rheumatology clinical training period for internal medicine residents and develop a model to measure the outcome of the curriculum change.
During the month-long clinical training period in rheumatology, internal medicine residents participated in 10 interactive lectures on basic rheumatology with the faculty and worked through 26 case studies and radiographs of different rheumatic diseases with the faculty.
Separate pre and posttests were developed and administered to the residents, both as evaluative and educational tools.
