Drs. Christina Wilson, David Mendoza, and Manonmani Murugappan presenting their poster at the ACGME Collaborative Back to Bedside Meeting in Chicago.

Back to Beside is designed to empower residents and fellows to develop transformative projects that foster meaning and joy in work and allow them to engage on a deeper level with what is at the heart of medicine: their patients. Since the inception of the Back to Bedside initiative, the ACGME has funded more than 80 projects, engaging nearly 200 residents and fellows in innovative projects to enhance their clinical experience and engage more fully with their patients and colleagues.

The project lead is UF neurology resident David Mendoza, MD and the project is titled “Motivational Interviewing (MI) to Improve Outcomes After Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack Attributable to Modifiable Risk Factors.”  This study aims to determine the effect of MI-consistent counseling performed by neurology residents for adults afflicted by acute stroke or TIA attributable to modifiable risk factors, based on (1) patient outcomes and (2) meaning of work and sense of fulfillment for residents.  

Other members of this project include:
