Abstract

The educational characteristics of ambulatory morning report were compared with those of the inpatient morning report sessions over a five-month period. Ambulatory morning report had fewer total participants and was more likely to cover general internal medicine topics (p < 0.05), the medical interview (6.8% vs 1.2%, p = 0.02), and social issues (9.6% vs 1.2%, p = 0.02). Morning report conference can be replicated in the ambulatory setting, thus providing an opportunity to discuss general medicine topics not usually addressed in the inpatient setting.
