The Summer Intensive for New Medical Educators is an annual event that takes place in July. Faculty new to medical education, who began teaching within the past five years are invited to this innovative full-day program. The curriculum covers basic topics in medical education, such as approaching the adult learner, developing and refining teaching skills, evaluating the learner, and giving feedback. The program also includes both morning and afternoon clinical skills workshop sessions, offered by key Einstein faculty and staff.
As a part of this full day, a networking lunch provides an opportunity for the junior faculty to meet senior faculty in medical education and begin networking early in their career. During this day participants are introduced to the leadership structure of the Office of Medical Education and various teaching opportunities available at Einstein as well as at the national level. Dean Allen M. Spiegel joins the group at the end of the day to add his closing remarks at a wine and cheese reception immediately following the full day program.
On Wednesday, July 16, 2014, the Office of Faculty Development held its 2nd Annual Summer Intensive Skills Training for New Medical Educators, from 8:00 am until 4:30 pm. We were excited to introduce junior faculty to the leadership and the structure of the Office of Medical Education as well as the various teaching opportunities available at Einstein. The event continues to be quite successful and well received.
