Medical Education Fellowship 2016 - 2017

 

The goal of this Fellowship is to develop clinician educators who will provide educational leadership in our departments and at the Yale School of Medicine.  In this interactive course, participants will have the opportunity to read educational literature, discuss principles of learning, and design an educational project.  Participation requires protected time to participate in 18 sessions including Medical Education Day.
