Institute for Medical Education

Program for Post-Graduate Trainees

The Harvard Macy Institute brings together health care professionals, educators, and leaders to discuss critical challenges and to design innovative solutions that have a lasting impact on the way medicine is practiced and how students are educated. Co-sponsored by the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai’s Institute for Medical Education (IME), The Program for Post-Graduate Trainees: Future Academic Clinician-Educators is offered annually in Boston, MA.

“It was a privilege to engage with so many bright, like-minded physicians. The program was an invaluable experience that helped me both sharpen my project and shape the image of the future academician I hope to become.”—Randy Sorge, MD, PY-3, Icahn School of Medicine

  • Discuss and apply theories of learning to their own teaching practice
  • Adapt their teaching practices to further develop focused learning objectives
  • Use feedback to improve their teaching and learning aptitude
  • Reflect on their own and others’ work in medical education
