Present: Jane Liebschutz, Chris Shanahan, Sharon Levine, Sonia Ananthakrishnan, Gopal Yadavalli, Tesfaldet Tecle, Emelia Benjamin
|Brainstorming about how to advance education mission of Dept of Medicine:
- What is the articulated mission?
- Learners: Residents & Students and Faculty
- Who is leading?
- No vice-chair for education: Defacto: Warren? Gopal?
- Who is leading education mission in Basic science?
- Master Educators publishing/scholarship
- Well-known place clinician educators thrive/morale
- Let’s outsiders and potential learners judge if BU gives a great education
- Visibility and transparency important for this
- Vitality & retention
- Development of clinician educators, for faculty vitality and retention to create great clinical work & great educator
- Skills development:
- Also assessment skills
- System, structure, metrics, dashboard
- Need for structured way to be a clinician educator – how do you structure contribution?
- Have teachers see evaluation of performance
- (Side note: BUSM has evaluations on all faculty by students- should be sent to Dept Chairs- need to find out and how to get it disseminated; Gopal planning to send three year compilation of resident evaluation to attending physicians)
Education PI who mentor researcher, who allow them to advance and develop
|How can committee be successful
What does path for success look like for clinician educator in these various roles:
- Clinician Educator
- Clinician Scholar
Articulate a Road Map for these paths of success
- Website –> outline
Skill sets that people need to learn, and knowledge to turn teaching into scholarship
- Big idea for Scholarship – project?
- How turn what you do on a daily basis into scholarship
- Create opportunities for scholarship
- If develop a program how do you evaluate it
- If have program evaluated how turn into scholarship – papers, MedEd portal
How to succeed
- Tools for success
- Only question asked when clinician educator interviews for job is “when can you start?” vs. the skill set for investigators
- Educator portfolio – not used here and so CV creation very difficult
How innovate and disseminate
- How to get support to do it
- Need for in house evaluator
- May be too premature for people who don’t even know how to formulate a project
Consider developing a Nationally peer reviewed award (example from Cleveland via Gopal)
- Individual faculty submit what they consider their best educational innovation/curriculum/paper, gets reviewed by internal committee and highest ranked sent to national peer reviewers (anonymous) who will then say whether it ranks nationally as worthy of award; likely to raise the bar at our institution
Disseminate, incorporate feedback
–> Gopal to form a subcommittee to take on development of the paths to success for educators
–> Sharon, Sonia, Warren, Emelia, Rob (Lowe)
–> Need someone from basic science education (desgupta?)
–> Open it up to anyone from faculty
