GIM Faculty Development Program

Goals

Benefit from the experience and expertise of colleagues throughout the division and institution.

Seminars will be offered at inpatient and outpatient sites throughout the year. Most seminars will be discussions led by colleagues from within the division and throughout the institution.

Speakers will address:

  • Teaching students during a busy clinic day
  • Creating and updating a teaching portfolio
  • Writing letters of recommendation
  • Mentoring junior faculty

Upcoming Seminars

October 5, 2017

Not many of us are really comfortable with the idea of a Teaching Portfolio. It can be unclear if you’re actually supposed to have one, what goes into it, and just how important it is for promotion. Next week, Dr. Berger and Dr. LaMotte will tell you everything you need to know about this mysterious but important document.

October 11, 2017

In this seminar, Dr. Fainstad will discuss how to maximize the effect of feedback by creating a new conceptual model of feedback in medical education.

October 19, 2017

As medical educators, we try to teach our students and residents to be comprehensive and thorough clinicians. But for some learners, trying to meet these ideals can become maladaptive and actually hinder their effectiveness.
