The Medical Education Discussion Group Series

The Teaching and Learning Center is delighted to host The Medical Education Discussion Group (MEDG) Series. These are monthly sessions when faculty and staff involved in medical education come together to learn and share with one another. Our facilitators include members of Yale faculty as well as guests from other schools who are experts in their field. Each session held in an informal and interactive format. Typically the facilitator will begin with a brief presentation on the topic and then the session is open for questions and discussion among the participants.

MEDG sessions are free to everyone committed to medical education at Yale and accredited by the ACCME for 1 AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credit.
