Electives - Medical Education

    Credit will be given for only 8 weeks of Electives in Medical Education.

    Pre-Clerkship Teaching Electives:

    **Students scheduling these two electives should participate in a three-evening series of teaching skills workshops to be scheduled in mid-April, 2018**

    Dates are: April 18th, April 25th & May 2nd (all Wednesday's) and will be held from 6-9pm each of those evenings. Attendance at all 3-workshops is mandatory.

    This series of teaching-related workshops will immerse students in a supportive learning community where you will explore a number of classroom and clinical teaching mechanisms, practice giving and receiving meaningful and constructive peer feedback, and be personally mentored by enthusiastic faculty while designing and participating in micro-teaching activities.

    Specifically, at the end of these workshops, students will be able to:

    • Explain the fundamentals of teaching and learning in medical settings.
    • Create and implement an instructional session, considering the alignment between learning objectives, assessment, and instructional strategies.
    • Implement the principles and best practices of clinical skills-based education.
    • Provide constructive feedback to students and colleagues that promotes a scholarly dialogue.
    • Formulate a self-development plan for both classroom and clinical teaching.

    ** students not enrolled in a teaching elective, but would like to participate in this three-evening series of teaching skills workshops, should contact Selina Normaly to register**
