It is important for teaching physicians to know what qualities are most valued by learners. To date, only two studies have been published addressing internal medicine residents’ perceptions of teaching faculty [1,2]. We sought to expand on the evidence about this topic through a multicenter study at four geographically diverse academic medical centers. Our study focused on teaching characteristics of intensive care unit (ICU) physicians that learners perceive are most impactful.
