Clinician communication skills impact outcomes for patients, their loved ones, the healthcare system and clinicians themselves. Fortunately, a robust body of evidence shows that communication skills are teachable. The Northwestern Simulation Program in Healthcare Communication provides evidence-based communication skills training for Northwestern medical students, residents, fellows and faculty. The program is also the academic home for a robust group of medical educators at Northwestern who are working together to study and optimize communication skills training models. The group specializes in Mastery Learning for Communication Skills training.
