Partners Healthcare - PHI Hosts Three-Day Intensive Course for Future Academic Clinician Educators

PHI recently hosted its first professional development program for postgraduate fellows and residents seeking to enhance their skills as future academic clinician-educators.

 – February 24, 2014  –– 

The program draws on the Harvard Macy Institute model requiring each participant to apply with a medical education project that is of interest to him or her and of benefit to the current or future training program in which he or she works or teaches. Participants also had to identify a faculty mentor at their academic institution who could support them in their endeavors. "We chose to build this in given the critical importance of mentorship and guidance in a trainee's career development. Having the support and commitment of a faculty member at the scholar's home institution is also critical for project success" noted Dr. Reena Karani, a program director for the course, associate dean for Undergraduate Medical Education and Curricular Affairs and director of the Institute for Medical Education at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York.
