  1. *Groups – Cells refer to cells in Table 2. e.g., Cell 2 – Internal medicine and SPE taken in the second rotation. Did not receive PDM training. Cell 3 – Internal medicine and SPE taken in the second rotation. Received PDM training four weeks prior to SPE. Cell 4 – Internal medicine and SPE taken in the third rotation. Received PDM training 12 weeks prior to the SPE. Cell 5 – Internal medicine and SPE taken in the third rotation. Received PDM training four weeks prior to the SPE. Differences in the number of observations between total and the PDM score reflect missing ratings. M. Rank – Mean rank of the observations in the group.
