Manager for Educator Development

In my role as Manager for Educator Development, I oversee programs to enhance education for all of the departments at the Yale School of Medicine (YSM) as well as a diverse range of Yale New Haven Hospital interprofessional health care providers.

I will highlight a few of these programs:

  • The Medical Education Fellowship, a year-long interactive course where participants have the opportunity to read educational literature, discuss principles of learning and create an educational project. Their work is presented at the Poster Session at Medical Education Day at Yale when they graduate as Fellows.
  • Clinical Teaching Educator Development Program, a series of small-group educational sessions for faculty and residents designed to develop their skills as teachers in clinical settings.
  • The Humanism in Teaching Interprofessional Education Program, a longitudinal program led by interprofessional facilitators to bring health care team professionals including Physicians, PAs, Nurses, Social Workers, etc. together to enhance their humanistic approach to patient care.
  • Educator Development Sessions on a wide variety of topics including clinical reasoning, observation and feedback, educational scholarship, effective teaching, lecturing and small group facilitation, to name a few. These sessions, which are designed constructed to meet the specific needs of the attendees, are often taught by TLC faculty as well as YSM leaders in medical education. They are CME accredited.

I would be delighted to help you or answer any questions you might have about educator development programs either that we currently provide or one that you are interested in creating. Please email or call me at the contact information above.
