The Medical Education Fellowship Program is a monthly, cohort-style program for Larner College of Medicine faculty who seek additional preparation
for teaching and educational scholarship across the medical education continuum. Topics include constructing learning goals and objectives; educational program design and evaluation; the science of learning; approaches to educational research; and more.
Participants also initiate an education project and receive peer feedback and educational research consultation throughout the program. The program consists of interactive, seminar-style sessions and readings. Participants may also elect to observe teaching
sessions and receive feedback on their own teaching.
Approximately 8-10 faculty members will be selected for participation in the Medical Education Fellowship Program. While designed for early to mid-career faculty members, faculty with
teaching experience who are interested in expanding their teaching skills and educational scholarship may also apply. Participants are expected to undertake a curriculum or assessment project or other teaching-related project suitable for presentation
and publication. Scholarly project presentations will occur at the final session. The primary facilitator is Katie Huggett, Ph.D., Director of the LCOM Teaching Academy. Additional faculty and staff will co-facilitate or share resources and expertise
at individual sessions.
Prerequisite: Applicants without previous preparation for teaching (e.g., course offered by a specialty society) must complete the Teaching Academy’s Essentials of Teaching and Assessment certificate course on
the afternoon of September 29 and the morning of September 30, 2022.
