Educator Programs & Events

The Center for Medical Education provides a synergized and centralized approach to educator development and professional development. These programs support the Yale community educators and those engaged in medical education, research, and teaching our students and trainees. The Center carefully selects topic experts from Yale as well as guests from other institutions to share their expertise with our educators. These sessions are offered via Zoom, accredited for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s), and are free of charge to anyone at Yale.

Yale Medical Educator Series – YES!

This year-long series of CME accredited, bi-monthly Zoom workshops is run by the Center for Medical Education, for everyone involved in teaching our students and trainees. The sessions are designed for Yale educators, from novice to expert, with up-to-date, practical ways to engage and inspire learners in lab, workshop, clinical, and classroom settings.

Medical Education Discussion Group (MEDG)

The monthly CME accredited MEDG sessions are held via Zoom for anyone at Yale involved in, or interested in getting involved in, medical education. These sessions are designed to address a timely topic of interest and engaging discussion among participants.

Medical Education Day at Yale

The Center for Medical Education is excited to host the 12th annual Medical Education Day at Yale in-person on June 6, 2024. This is the first time we are in person since 2019. We heard from an overwhelming number of attendees that they want to gather and learn together in 2024.

Developing Faculty Competency in Assessment

Yale collaborates with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) to co-sponsor a regional three-day faculty development course for academic faculty concentrated on assessment skills. This highly interactive course will address learner assessment skills (such as direct observation and feedback) as well as tools and strategies to help faculty best meet their programmatic requirements (clinical competency committee input, multisource evaluations). The target audience includes program directors, associate program directors, fellowship directors, clerkship directors, chairs, heads of clinical competency committees and other core faculty with major responsibility for assessment of students, residents and fellows.

This course will be offered in September 2024.
