One of the privileges of being at an academic medical center is the opportunity to teach medical students.  All residents play a major role in teaching medical students. During intern orientation, residents are introduced to their important role as teachers.  A skills-based resident-as-teacher workshop during intern orientation prepares residents to orient the learner, give feedback, and teach medical students and allows residents to practice these skills with feedback from faculty.  In addition, periodic workshops are offered to residents to help enhance their teaching skills.
