Clincal Educator Track

The goal of the Clinical Educator Track is to prepare residents to take on academic and educational leadership roles. We aim to give residents access to both the theoretical knowledge and the practical training necessary to be leaders in the field of academic medicine. The track is specifically designed for residents who intend to pursue clinician educator and/or academic administrative careers after graduation.

Residents apply for the Clinical Educator Track at the beginning of the PGY2 year. Selected residents work with a faculty mentor to develop an educational project designed for medical students or residents. Projects are scholarly - that is, they are set up to generate or test hypotheses regarding effective educational interventions. Each resident graduating from the track will have completed a project and will have presented a poster or participated in a workshop at a national conference or will have submitted a paper for publication. Residents in the track may set aside elective time in the PGY4 year for their educational projects, and are eligible to receive travel funds for presentations at academic meetings.
