Default My opinion

Most PDs will laugh at people including these skills in the CV.

For 2 reasons:

1) Residents should not be expert in these bedside procedures, you are there to learn these procedures, so if you include them, they'll "Oh, well, why you are coming here then?!"

2) If you say that you have done residency and/or internship somewhere then everybody know what those rotations entails, we don't need you to tell us what residents do in their residency!

Now the only exception is:
If you apply to community (low profile) programs then you might include these procedures. Reason is that these programs are not looking for people to teach, they are looking for people to run their unbelievably busy service so they'll be happy when you tell them that you know some procedures.

Are community programs not teaching oriented?

Not all of them.
Those programs located in inner towns with lots of prematches usually do not care about teaching, all they care about is to run their busy services.

Is teaching essential for a resident? How important is it?
