  Purpose

This study aims to compare the clinical efficacy of multimedia audiovisual training to hands on "practice till perfect" training for pediatric and emergency medicine residents' procedural skills. This initial study will explore the success rates on infant lumbar puncture and child intravenous access skills in post-graduate year one pediatric residents.
