An essential component of competency in respiratory medicine is the acquisition of consultative skills.
The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and other certification bodies have recommended a greater emphasis on the evaluation of clinical skills by direct observation.
In this study, consultative abilities are assessed using the format of an objective structured clinical examination (OSCE).
A six-case, 160-min-long, examination was administered to three groups of physicians : faculty members, respiratory residents, and junior residents in internal medicine.
The overall quality of the consultations was significantly better for the attending physicians when compared with the junior residents, and there was a systematic trend for the quality to improve with increased training.
