Foundations in Medical Education 

Foundation in Medical Education Request for Application

The Shapiro Institute at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is seeking applications for Foundations in Medical Education. This faculty development course is designed to provide participants with the core knowledge and strategies to initiate a career as a teacher and educator. It is targeted at early career faculty as well as experienced physicians who are looking to take on a more formal role in the education of medical students, residents and/or fellows. 


This 10-session course will be offered during the 2022-2023 academic year beginning in October 2022. Sessions will take place on the second Tuesday of each month from 5:30-7:00pm at BIDMC, in person, to allow for a dynamic and interactive small group discussion structure. Participants will gain an understanding of core medical education topics including adult learning theory, bedside teaching skills, curriculum development, reaching the modern-day learner, providing effective feedback, assessment and evaluation, remediation, and basics of medical education research, among others. Additionally, participants will gain skills and understanding on how to transform daily educational responsibilities into scholarship that can advance their careers and academic promotion. Given the dynamic and small group nature of the course, they will also have the opportunity to network and collaborate with educators across multiple specialties at the medical center.
