Student Training in Electronic Health Records
When medical students transition from medical school to their postgraduate residency training programs, they must be able to use electronic health records (EHR) to document patient interactions and order medical interventions and tests. Although most medical schools provide some level of training in EHR use, it is unclear whether the training is robust enough to meet the needs of postgraduate programs. To further explore the depth and breadth of training, the American College of Physicians Education and Publication Committee—with collaboration from the Internal Medicine Education Advisory Board (IMEAB) of the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM)—conducted a survey of U.S. allopathic and osteopathic accredited medical school curriculum deans.
