Excellence in Medical Education: Faculty Development Certificate Program

This series is presented in collaboration with the Academy of Distinguished Educators. Faculty who attend 10 workshops over a two-year period will receive a Certificate of Commitment to Faculty Development in Medical Education. The certificate can be included as part of the Teaching Portfolio, which in turn can be used for purposes of application for membership to the Academy of Distinguished Educators and/or as part of the portfolio for promotion and tenure. Topics presented in this series are located here.

Medical Education Grand Rounds

This series features lectures from invited speakers, usually from outside of the University of Virginia, who are specialists in various topics related to medical education. Attendance during workshops in this series counts toward the attendee receiving a Certificate of Commitment to Faculty Development in Medical Education. Topics presented in this series are located here

Journal Club meetings

The School of Medicine revised its medical education curriculum. To prepare faculty to teach to the revised curriculum, a series of faculty development programs were developed, including this monthly series of discussions about pertinent journal articles. Please note that attending the journal club meetings does NOT count toward earning a Certificate of Commitment to Faculty Development in Medical Education. Journal Article citations reviewed during these meetings are located here.

Certificate Program: Comprehensive Approach to Remediating the Learner in Need

Wednesday, May 23, 2018, 4:00 PM — 5:30 PM
Pinn Hall Conference Center (formerly Jordan Hall), Charlottesville
CME Credits: 1.50

This class is part of the Teacher Development Excellence in Medical Education: Certificate Program. Comprehensive Approach to Remediating the Learner in Need:  Assessment, Coaching and Triage Decisions, Wednesday, May 23, 2018, 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m., Room G1/G2 Pinn Hall Conference Center.  Presented by Karen M. Warburton, MD, FASN, Associate Professor of Medicine, Vice Chief for Faculty Development (Nephrology Division), and Director, GME Professional Development, Department of Medicine and Andrew Parsons, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Hospitalist, and Lead Coach for Clinical Reasoning. Remediation is often an uncomfortable topic.  Struggles may include poor performance on an examination, interpersonal conflicts, or underlying impairment.  To effectively help these learners, we must embrace a culture in which it is accepted that a certain proportion of our trainees will struggle at some point.  This workshop will offer attendees an approach to identifying and coaching learners who struggle across a wide variety of domains of clinical performance.  Attendees will work in small groups in which they will review cases and will work together to assess, and develop a remediation plan for, learners with a variety of deficits.  The presenters will share their experiences in the development of remediation programs at two academic institutions.  The audience will then have the opportunity to brainstorm some strategies for implementing remediation programs in their own departments.  Following this session, participants will be able to demonstrate a process for the comprehensive evaluation of a learner in need; create individualized learning plans for learners who struggle with clinical reasoning, organization and efficiency, and professionalism; and propose an approach to the development of an effective coaching and remediation program. (1.5 CME credits)

Certificate Program: Designing effective surveys

Thursday, May 24, 2018, 4:00 PM — 5:30 PM
Pinn Hall Conference Center (formerly Jordan Hall), Charlottesville
CME Credits: 1.50

Research Series Session 5; Designing effective surveys; Thursday, May 24, 2018; 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.; Meeting Room 1, Pinn Hall Conference Center.  Presented by Lisa Rollins, PhD, Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Director of Scholarship. How often have you or your colleagues enthusiastically uttered “We should develop a survey to ask others about that!”? Surveys are an accessible and often expedient way to gather information. However, the process of creating a survey is far more involved than merely throwing a group of questions together on a page. Come learn about how to create surveys so you can utilize this methodology more effectively in your practice, your department, or in other aspects of your work. This session will be interactive and does not require previous experience. At the end of this session, participants will be able to: describe various considerations when designing a survey; create effective questions, keeping in mind some common pitfalls in question design; describe some helpful hints when developing surveys; and identify procedures that affect survey response rate. (1.5 CME credits)
