Critical Thinking and Clinical Jazz

Description

Although the small group process has been used liberally in medical education for the purpose of increasing critical thinking, many studies of cognitive skills gained in these settings have relied on student self-reports and only a few studies have explored measures of group behavior. This study explored the question, "How does Clinical Jazz (CJ), a novel critical reflection group process, contribute to the development of critical thinking of medical students?" To that end, we adapted a coding structure for the purpose of measuring critical thinking in groups.
