This paper describes an application of Bowen theory in an academic setting. Using data from a previously published paper, the author describes how family systems concepts were used to design and implement a special curriculum for surgical residents who had failed an annual exam testing their surgical knowledge. The curriculum was designed to address these knowledge deficits and to ascertain whether performance on different aspects of the special curriculum would be predictive of the score on the next annual exam. The program director used Bowen theory, particularly the concepts of triangles, reciprocal functioning and ideas about cutoff to develop and administer the curriculum and to relate to the individual surgical residents.
