The Department of Medicine is now accepting applications for the September 2019 start date of the 2019-2021 cohort of the Master Teacher Program. The deadline for applications is June 10, 2019.

The Master Teacher Program is a two-year faculty development program that is designed to meet the learning needs of each participant. Participating physicians attend the program one half-day per week. Classes for the cohort beginning September 2019 will take place on Monday afternoons. The program provides a series of interactive seminars on medical teaching and education topics and opportunities to present participant teaching methods through clinical teaching practica. The core series includes sessions on essential teaching topics: small and large group teaching techniques, bedside teaching, assessing learner needs, promotion of understanding and retention of knowledge, evaluation and assessment, feedback, teaching in difficult situations, competence by design, equity, diversity and allyship, along with many other teaching and education topics of relevance. Participants may also elect to take additional relevant graduate courses offered at the University.
