In an article in Family Medicine, authors Cristy Page, MD, MPH, Linda Myerholtz, PhD, and Hannah Baker, MPH enlisted an expert panel to identify elements of feedback culture that foster learning and growth for educators and learners in medical student education.
Experts in medical education have hypothesized that programs with a robust culture of feedback foster learning and growth for learners and educators, yet literature has shown no consensus for what defines a feedback culture in graduate education. In a recent study published in Family Medicine, Cristy Page, MD, MPH, Hannah Baker, MPH, and Linda Myerholtz, PhD, enlisted an expert panel who endorsed essential elements that can be used to assess feedback culture in graduate medical education programs. Seventeen elements were identified and include faculty serving as role models on how to seek, receive, and use feedback, developing a culture where everyone receives feedback, emphasis on support rather than blame, and more. In identifying these elements, authors look to incorporate feedback culture as a standard in medical student education.
