Improvement in CREOG Scores Through Focused Review Sessions
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
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.
findings support the hypothesis that focused review sessions improved resident
comprehension as reflected by CREOG scores.
