Improvement in CREOG Scores Through Focused Review Sessions

Purpose: To determine if focused review sessions lead to improvement in CREOG scores.

 

Background: In 2013, faculty at the University of Kentucky developed a Gynecologic Oncology (GYO) review aimed at improving resident scores.

 

Methods: Each year, residents voluntarily participated in five review sessions on major topics in GYO.  Sessions consisted of a pre-test (approximately 15 questions) followed by a discussion that emphasized the key concepts for that subject. From 2014-2017, GYO scores were compared between residents who attended (A) over 50% of the sessions and those who did not (NA). Scores from 2010-2013 were collected as a control group (C). SAS (9.4) was used to analyze the data via ANOVA with repeated measures and least square difference pairwise comparisons. Significance was defined as p <0.05.

 

Results: Data was collected on 153 tests from 55 residents (80 from 2010-13 and 73 from 2014-17). The mean scores for GYO and overall test increased with each resident year (p<0.0001). Attendance revealed a statistically significant improvement on GYO scores when compared to NA (p=0.0001) and C (p=0.0008).  There was no difference between C and NA (p=0.3875). Those who attended also scored significantly higher on overall test scores compared to NA (p=0.0002). There was no difference between A and C (p=0.1747). For those residents who attended multiple years of review sessions, there was no significant improvement in GYO or overall scores compared to less frequent attendees. 

 

Discussions: Our findings support the hypothesis that focused review sessions improved resident comprehension as reflected by CREOG scores.
