About the Event
This installment of the Extraordinary Learning and Teaching in the Clinical Setting course features LuAnn Wilkerson, Ed.D., and Carrie Barron, M.D., on promoting mindfulness and reflective practice. Wilkerson is the associate dean for evaluation and faculty development in the Department of Medical Education and Barron is the director of the Creativity for Resilience Program.
About the Course
This faculty development course begins with a half-day workshop then meets weekly with the goal of exploring strategies for teaching in the outpatient setting. Sessions include peer-to-peer discussion, case studies, simulations, videos and practice with feedback, drawing on evidence from the medical education literature.
The Saturday workshop focuses specifically on medical student education, but the evening workshops include strategies for teaching both students and residents. Faculty members need not participate in all sessions to enroll in the course; however, participation can be counted toward a Dell Medical School Certificate in Clinical Teaching (requires 24 hours of faculty development).
