New Program for Residents Interested in Medical Education
Posted: August 21st, 2014
We are excited to announce a brand new program for residents interested in medical education – The Clinician Educator Program, or CEP.
The mission of this program is to prepare residents for careers as clinician educators by offering additional training and mentorship in this area, thus helping residents develop advanced teaching skills, and also pursue academic scholarship in the field of medical education.
The program consists of several components:
- Monthly core didactics (on topics related to teaching skills, educational research, and career development)
- Additional opportunities to teach junior residents or medical students (with the option to receive observation and feedback on their teaching)
- CEP mentor, with whom the resident will meet regularly, and will provide guidance on teaching, educational projects, and career development
- Educational project, which the resident will develop and carry out over the course of their PGY3-4 years
- Quarterly CEP Dinners, hosted at faculty homes, for residents to present and discuss their educational pursuits with colleagues
- Encouraged attendance at any number of local and national medical education-related events, seminars, conferences etc, with travel awards available to support residents presenting their work at national meetings
