In the event that you are looking for some reading over the holidays, we highly recommend the annual Medical Education issue (12/6/2016) of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). You can listen to the Editor's Audio Summary by Robert M. Golub, MD, Deputy Editor of JAMA or read full articles using the online JAMA reader app.

A few articles of interest to us here at Firecracker:

1. A study by Denson et al that explores the relationship between end-of-rotation resident transition and care of patients. One of the biggests areas of concern is communication between the various members of the care team.

2. A research letter by Meeks and Herzer on the performance of medical students with disabilities. The most prevelant disability was Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

3. A systematic review by Wasson et al to identify the best practices for undergraduate medical education learning environment interventions.
