Medical Education Day Connects Educators From Across Yale's Health Professional Schools

What are effective teaching strategies in the presence of patients? How can we learn to combat bias and discrimination in medical education settings? Are there ways to structure Team-Based Learning so that it is both highly interactive and instructive?

These questions reflect some of the topics discussed during eight afternoon breakout sessions that were part of Yale School of Medicine’s (YSM) sixth annual Medical Education Day (Med Ed Day), held on May 16, 2018. Med Ed Day, which YSM’s Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) sponsors, provides learning opportunities about medical education for faculty, residents, fellows, students, and staff from across Yale’s health professional schools. It also celebrates the central role of medical education and its scholarship at YSM.
