WHO: Any Atrium Health full- or part-time healthcare practitioner engaged in teaching clinical trainees (including: physician, resident, fellow, preceptor, nurse, allied health provider, or mid-level provider).

WHAT: This certificate series is a six session Clinical Teaching Program developed by the Stanford Faculty Development Center for Medical Teachers and will be facilitated by our own Dr. Allen Lloyd, a Stanford-trained Clinical Teaching facilitator and Atrium Health physician.

This program covers seven educational categories:

  1. Learning climate
  2. Control of session
  3. Communication of goals
  4. Promotion of understanding and retention
  5. Evaluation
  6. Feedback
  7. Promotion of self-directed learning

The certificate series is based on the program developed over the past 25 years by Kelly Skeff, MD, PhD and Georgette Stratos, PhD at Stanford University. They have traveled all over the world delivering this seminar to medical residencies and other medical training institutions. Additionally they authored the book, Methods for Teaching Medicine, one of the books of the Teaching Medicine Series of the American College of Physicians. Please visit the Stanford course website for further information.

WHY: Medical faculty today must choose from a wide array of teaching strategies, while also accounting for content, learners, and the context of the teaching environment. Recognizing that the complexity of teaching continues to increase, these sessions encompass a non-prescriptive behavioral approach for improving teaching. This program focuses on the principles, guidelines, and behavioral alternatives that teachers can utilize to increase their effectiveness.

WHEN: 5-7 p.m., March 5, 12, 19 and 26, April 2 and 16; CMC MEB sixth floor 6A and 6B conference room | Please plan to attend all six sessions as a complete course and receive the Certificate in Clinical Teaching.
