Context: Micrometry skills, a combination of visual, cognitive, technical, and spatial expertise, are useful for ascertaining the quantitative research outcomes with concreteness. We conducted a workshop, based on modified Peyton's approach, which is aimed at transferring these skills for optimal research practice. Aims: Our principal aim was to document the perceived learning outcomes and knowledge gained from the focused didactic training workshop on micrometry skills. Settings and Design: In the 1-day hands-on workshop, basic concepts of micrometry skills were taught using ImageJ software. The learning gains of workshop were evaluated using Moore's expanded outcomes framework. Subjects and Methods: To achieve this, we administered pre- and post-tests along with a postworkshop evaluation survey form. Statistical Analysis Used: Descriptive statistical analysis was used to estimate the measures of central tendency. Results: Significant knowledge transfer could be demonstrated by increase in posttest scores. The feedback responses of the participants were overtly positive. Conclusions: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first documentation of the focused didactic micrometry skills training workshop using modified Peyton's approach. The framework might serve as a formidable base for conducting similar workshops in other medical schools.
