A user's guide to evaluation instruments and a CHAMP program overview are also available on this webpage, as well as open access to evaluation instruments for other learner levels and all CHAMP teaching materials.
The CHAMP (Curriculum for the Hospitalized Aging Medical Patient) is a multi-tiered educational project with a faculty development program at its core. Hospitalists, general internists, and family practitioners who teach residents and medical students are the targeted audience.
Resident evaluation instruments provide quantitative measures of the following:
- Frequency with which geriatric clinical skills are taught by attending physicians on the general medicine wards.
- Self-confidence practicing geriatric clinical skills
- Importance of practicing geriatric clinical skills
- Frequency practicing geratric clinical skills in the inpatient setting.
- Frequency being taught geriatric clinical skillls in the inpatient setting by physician specialty.
