Medical Education Fellowship Program
September 2020 - June 2021
The Medical Education Fellowship Program is a monthly, cohort-style program for College of Medicine educators who seek additional preparation for teaching across the medical education continuum. The program is sponsored by the Teaching Academy and open to all Larner College of Medicine faculty. Participants will review principles of learning and development, discuss teaching and learning issues with colleagues, and develop instructional and assessment strategies. Participation in the program will also include mentorship for a scholarly project in education suitable for presentation and publication. The program consists of interactive, seminar-style sessions and readings. A flipped classroom approach will be used, i.e., materials will be available in advance of each session and participants will be expected to draw upon the materials during the sessions. Participants will also have the opportunity 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 scholarship may also apply. Participants are expected to undertake a curriculum development initiative or other teaching-related project suitable for presentation and publication. 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 are advised to complete the Essentials of Teaching and Assessment course on September 17-18, 2020. This
