The Teaching Scholars Program is designed to promote expertise in medical education. The year-long program includes monthly seminars and individual projects. The latter provide participants with an opportunity to pursue individual educational interests and to report their results to their colleagues at a symposium and graduation at the conclusion of the Program. Graduation from the Program confers recognition as a scholar in medical education and provides the School of Medicine with a resource of talent in education.
This faculty development program is specifically designed for those individuals who have responsibility for educational programs or courses, or whose work includes a focus on teaching and who seek to develop their skills in that area. Ten Teaching Scholars are chosen each year from faculty nominated by their department chairs.
