We are thrilled to have a formal clinician-educator track. Our fellows can participate in activities during their second year to guide them toward careers as educators. These activities include a formal curriculum with monthly interactive sessions.
Fellows also have the opportunity to teach students during pre-clinical years (as part of the introduction to clinical medicine course) and to teach students and residents during their rotations on the ID consultation service and the inpatient ID team. Fellows can also participate in curriculum design and evaluation as well as other scholarly projects around education. They will work with seasoned clinician-educators.
- There is the opportunity to pursue a variety of scholarly projects with mentoring
- Types of projects range from developing curricula and workshops (for residents, and students) that can lead to MedEd portal publications; to QI projects related to education; or scholarly activities that result in peer-reviewed publications
- There is the potential for assistance with biostatistics as well as qualitative analyses
- Projects can be jointly developed with residents also working on curricula (e.g. LGBTQ, DEI, wellness curriculum committees).
There is a curriculum with lectures/workshops covering topics for clinician educators that our 2nd-year fellows on this track may participate in. Fellows have a broad range of teaching opportunities during the 2nd year of fellowship, across the spectrum of medical education. In addition, fellows work with a faculty mentor to develop a scholarly project in medical education.
