Medical students on their clinical rotations work closely with physician preceptors and other medical professionals.  The students have access to many opportunities for learning that include instruction from non-physician providers.  However, being taught in the clinical setting by other disciplines is not ingrained in the culture and not aggressively sought by most medical students on their own initiative.


To promote interdisciplinary learning by medical students on their Pediatric Clerkship.


Results will not be available until February 2017, but will be analyzed prior to the COMSEP annual meeting.


Our intervention is simple and hopefully will be effective in promoting interdisciplinary learning. If successful, it could easily be adopted and implemented by any clerkship program. Each program can tailor the BINGO grid to suit their local learning environments and program’s educational priorities.
