To successfully train the next generation of health care professionals, medical educators must utilize innovative teaching strategies and techniques in both classroom and clinical settings. Training to Teach in Medicine is a six-month online certificate program taught by distinguished Harvard Medical School faculty for clinician-educators, instructors and faculty from across the globe. This contemporary program integrates traditional and novel pedagogic methods, skills-based training, two live virtual workshops, online learning modules, individual and team projects, as well as a final capstone project to benefit your home institution.
Training to Teach in Medicine aims to develop skilled clinical educators who can apply educational theories and teaching best practices to instruct medical students and physicians-in-training, in turn equipping the future medical workforce for career success. Participants will graduate from the program with the skills, strategies and techniques required to educate medical students and adult learners in a variety of settings.
Upon program completion, participants will:
- Master evidence-based justifications for critical clinical education skill sets. Through the study of educational theories, scholars will leave the program with a framework to educate medical learners in practice
- Learn and apply practical teaching skills to diverse groups of adult learners in bedside, ambulatory, classroom and other settings
- Accelerate leadership and professional development in medical education pedagogies and teaching techniques
