Abstract

Both professionalism and interpersonal communication are core competencies for emergency medicine residents as well as residents from other specialties. The authors describe a weekly, small-group seminar lasting one year for emergency medicine residents that incorporates didactic materials, case studies, narrative expression (stories and poems), and small-group discussion. Examples of cases and narrative expressions are provided and a rationale for utilizing the format is explained. A theoretical model for evaluation measures is also included.
