Join us on Tuesday, August 18, 12:00 – 1:00 PM EST for the first virtual faculty exchange webinar “Transforming Academic Activities into Scholarship” with Jeannine Nonaillada, PhD, OTR/L, BCG, FAOTA from the New York University Long Island School of Medicine.
Meeting link will be emailed to you prior to the event AND available here:
In the busy clinical setting, many physicians find it difficult to engage in scholarly activity, especially related to academic activities. Increased institutional productivity demands and the pressures of the ticking clock place hardships on many physicians whose primary responsibility is to provide clinical care. Balancing other life roles can also make it challenging to commit to ongoing professional development activities.
In order to be perceived as leaders in medical education among our students as well as colleagues, it is essential that physicians produce scholarly activities demonstrating lifelong learning and contributing to our clinical knowledge base.
At the end of this session, you will be able to:
1. Identify the essential components of scholarship in academic education
2. Give examples of known or perceived barriers to your own scholarly activities
3. Apply components of scholarship to your own work (planned or in progress) as a physician educator
