The Teaching Scholars Program aims to promote medical education efforts in the College of Medicine by developing a cadre of faculty with advanced skills in teaching and leadership. The program will help faculty to increase their understanding of the fundamentals of learning and apply them to successful educational programs. As a result of this program, the participating faculty will obtain a foundation in leadership for their future roles in medical education. Teaching Scholars is a program offered through the Office of Consultation and Research in Medical Education (OCRME).

Program Description

The 1-year program allows faculty to participate in the following activities:

  • Monthly training sessions that include multiple learning activities like small-group discussion, written exercises, skills practice, and video review
  • Preparatory activities for training sessions including applying the teaching and leadership skills covered in previous sessions, writing reflections on the effectiveness of the application of skills, and supplemental readings
  • Teaching video recordings where each Teaching Scholar is recorded and receive feedback on their session
  • Program evaluations to improve the program and the activities they participated in

A new class is accepted every other year with the 9th class starting in September 2017. See the list of participants below.
