C98 - Faculty Development: Enhancing Your Role in Student and Resident Training

Event Time: Monday May 6, 2019 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Research Methodology, Education, and History, Academic
Director(s): Vicki Shanker MD, FAAN
Description: Clinicians who work with trainees (medical students, residents, fellows) are expected to display excellence in their teaching and to be proficient in many skills related to their roles as educators. The new ACGME common requirements include a requirement that faculty members in residency programs must receive faculty development at least annually. While program directors often receive faculty development, many academic faculty do not have adequate exposure to faculty development opportunities or it is difficult for them to find time to attend local training. This course will assist in the development of key skills that clinicians are frequently asked to perform when working with trainees: writing letters of recommendation, providing trainee feedback, and teaching at the bedside.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to write letters of recommendation that will best convey their trainee and be able to better interpret letters of recommendation when reviewing applications. They should be able to use techniques such as the "One Minute Preceptor" to assess trainees and provide oral feedback to the learner in a short period of time. Participant should learn how to provide useful written feedback to the trainee. Antendees will learn how efficiently round at the bedside while still being able to highlight "teachable moments."
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism, Practice-based Learning and Improvement
