A Virtual, Interactive Quiz-Show Curriculum In Reproductive Endocrinology And Infertility For Residents

Purpose: To survey residents in OB/GYN at a single academic institution before and after implementing a virtual, game-based didactic highlighting key concepts in reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI).


Background: REI subspecialty exposure is often limited during residency, and many demonstrate poor performance on the REI section of the CREOG in-training examinations. Studies show that quiz-show-based lectures improve learners’ post-session knowledge, retention, and satisfaction. Given the uptake in virtual learning from COVID-19, we assessed the impact of a virtual interactive didactic on REI knowledge.


Methods: We conducted a prospective cohort study with a REDcap survey of residents before and after introduction of a 1-hour REI lecture utilizing a virtual game-show based format (similar to Jeopardy). A pre- and post-lecture survey was administered to all residents who were present for the didactic. The primary outcome was mean knowledge-based performance. Chi square/Fisher exact tests and two-sample t-tests/Wilcoxon rank-sum tests were used for categorical and continuous variables, respectively.


Results: Of 10 eligible subjects, 9 completed the pre-lecture survey while 3 completed the post-lecture survey. There were no differences among the pre- and post- groups with respect to age, gender, or ethnicity. The mean pre-lecture score was 38.9% ± 0.11%, while the post-lecture score was 73.3% ± 0.15% (p=0.001). A similar but not significant trend was observed when stratified by training year. 100% of respondents noted higher satisfaction, more engagement, and increased learning, as compared to standard virtual lectures.


Discussions: A virtual, game-based didactic can improve resident knowledge in key REI concepts while also increasing satisfaction and engagement.
