Introduction: Procedural skills training varies significantly across Canadian medical schools, and there is currently no standardized assessment tool to evaluate its benefits. This project aims to develop a curriculum that teaches 2nd-year medical students to perform and evaluate procedural skills. The goals of this program include decreasing anxiety, increasing confidence, and achieving competence for students and also allowing staff to judge the appropriate level of supervision when delegating learners to perform basic procedures in the team setting. Our curriculum incorporates, near-peer teaching as well as near peer formative assessment. Methods: Each of the twelve 2nd year participants completed a State Trait Anxiety Inventory and self-reported confidence questionnaire related to procedural skills. Students participated in four sessions taught by expert physicians over a five month period. A new skill was taught at each monthly workshop and an opportunity to practice previously taught skills was provided. Skills were assessed in a skills integration simulation OSCE, and the anxiety and confidence questionnaire was repeated. Results: Students who completed this pilot program showed a significant decrease in mean anxiety state (2.48 vs 1.74, p-value <0.001), while the control group did not (p-value = 0.408). When assessing confidence, students who completed this program showed increased self-assessed knowledge and confidence in each of the program's assessed skills. An increased level of competency was achieved in each skill by each student as assessed by the expert physicians. Conclusion: There is evidence to suggest that implementation of this procedural skills training model within the Canadian medical school curriculum may improve student anxiety, confidence, and competency for success in clerkship and could be the foundation for developing milestones for EPAs.
