New Year’s Resolution | Post-It Pearls – Back to basics with bedside teaching

Michelle Lin, MD |

post-it notesHappy new year! With so many exciting new blogs and podcasts out there producing wonderful clinical and professional development content, it strikes me that we may be overlooking the critical value that our star bedside clinician-educators provide for medical students and residents. Inspired by the #WhiteboardTeaching photos which Dr. Amal Mattu tweets from his ED shifts, I too started tweeting my own Post-It Pearls (#PostitPearls). In doing so, it has curiously reinvigorated my passion and dedication for bedside teaching. It has also allowed other learners and nurses to share in the teaching and learning. We are constantly on the lookout for something to add to a post-it note. Sometimes low-tech can be the answer in a digital world. Let’s make a new year’s resolution to get back to basics — bedside teaching. Anyone want to join me? Check out some recent photos.
