Faculty Teaching Opportunities

How Can You Get More Involved in Medical Education?

  1. Inviting students to learn about your patients’ care: Our students want to be involved in your patients’ care during their clinical rotations, and they appreciate your teaching during and after the patient encounter.
  2. Clerkship student debate facilitating: Spend an hour as moderator for students as they debate hot topics in Ob/Gyn. These are scheduled on Thursdays.
  3. Facilitating Shared Decision Making workshop with standardized patients for clerkship students: You give feedback to students who attempt to help patient actors make decisions about their treatment options. These are held on Thursdays from 1:30-3:30pm every six weeks.
  4. Facilitating Clinical Reasoning Workshops with clerkship students: People sign up for either two or four one-hour sessions at 4:00pm or 5:00pm during a 6-week clerkship. You are the guide on the side while the students present to their classmates (usually 5 or 6 at a time). These are usually held on Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays at 4:00pm.
  5. Facilitating OSCE for clerkship students: Two-hour (or so) commitment is required. Only held every twelve weeks; several faculty members rotate through the schedule. It requires three faculty members at a time to carry out the simulations and give feedback to the students. These are done on Thursday and Friday afternoons.
  6. Teaching about Labor & Delivery with Simulation: Spend an hour or two with another health care provider teaching small groups of three-five students about labor and delivery with the SimMom and Limbs & Things Simulators.
