Course Brochure

Upon completion of this in person course, scholars will:
  • Discuss and apply theories of learning to their own teaching practice
  • Adapt their teaching practices to further the achievement of intended learning objectives
  • Use feedback for both teaching and learning improvement
  • Reflect on their own and others’ work in medical education with a scholarly focus 
  • Use a scholarly approach to educational project development
  • Broaden their own community of clinician-educators within medical education

This three-day intensive program is focused on post-graduate trainees (residents and fellows) who seek to enhance their teaching skills and scholarship in medical education as future academic clinician educators. Learning formats rely on small group project work and problem-solving, interactive small group activities with individualized feedback, and large group case-based discussions. Faculty members are drawn from the community built from this program, now in its 11th year, bringing leadership and expertise in health professions education.

Participants will be encouraged to apply in trainee-faculty mentor teams, with explicit project support expected from the faculty mentor. The course learning is built around the scholars’ educational project development. Therefore, each scholar must apply with a medical/health professions education project that is of interest to the scholar and of benefit to the current or future training program in which he or she works or teaches.
