Remediation of the Struggling Medical Learner
In this well-organized, insightful, and practical second edition of her book, Jeannette Guerrasio, MD, generously shares her experience working with underperforming medical learners. Weaving real life examples of struggling learners with genuine faculty reactions, the author creates guidelines for identifying these learners, diagnosing their specific difficulties, and remediating their deficiencies. The experts agree that Remediation of the Struggling Medical Learner will benefit those who teach at all levels of medical training, from students through attending physicians. Similar to the Guide, this publication is available electronically in the Members Area of the AHME Website and the print edition can be purchased through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Remediation Case Studies: Helping Struggling Medical Learners
A companion to Dr. Guerrasio’s earlier work, this book provides detailed examples of faculty helping students and residents to overcome obstacles. Based on her practical framework for diagnosing difficulties and improving performance, this volume features 24 real-life cases. Contributors describe the students and residents who needed remediation and the strategies used to help these learners. Instructors share what worked/what didn’t work and, in hindsight, what might have worked better. By adding her own insightful comments about each case, Dr. Guerrasio has created a valuable resource for both new and experienced remediators. This publication is available electronically in the Members Area of the AHME Website and the print edition can be purchased through Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
