Description: Attendees may pick up their breakfast outside the classroom between 7:00-8:00am and bring back to the room for breakfast, connect with your colleagues, and small group discussion. Neurology Clerkship and Program directors share a common interest in medical education and their skills as clinician educators are likely to be assessed during the promotions process. The theme of this year's program focuses on what steps a clinician educator can take to demonstrate his or her impact on their learners, their program, their department, and their institution. The course will start with an overview of the steps one can take to develop an education career from the faculty and chair's perspective. Participants will then participate in breakout sessions with the themes of "Explore" and "Expand." During the "explore" session, participants will reflect on their educational philosophy and current roles. During the "expand" session participants will discuss what new roles they are contemplating and what the next steps might be. The breakout sessions will be facilitated by peers with track records of success as clinician educators. This course is open to anyone interested in building their career in neurology education – it is not limited to Clerkship and Program Directors only.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to to demonstrate their impact as medical educators to help them advocate for their professional needs, the needs of their learners, and their career development.
