At Yale, we believe a key leadership skill is the ability to effectively communicate information and to teach colleagues, health professional students and the public about SUD prevention and treatment. Throughout training, fellows learn teaching skills by observing faculty teach and by gradually assuming responsibility for teaching functions. Fellows also receive specific instruction and mentoring on presentation content and style. Each fellow presents a clinical case conference after which the group meets to provide constructive feedback using a model based on motivational interviewing.
