Dear Fellow Students,
We welcome you to join the Yale School of Medicine (YSM) Medical Education Interest Group (MedEd). We are an organization comprised of medical students and esteemed faculty members with an interest in developing our skills as medical educators and teachers. Janet Hafler, EdD, Professor of Pediatrics, Associate Dean for Educational Scholarship and the Director of the Teaching and Learning Center is our faculty advisor.
Our esteemed faculty members are actively involved as learners and teachers throughout this process. Our group serves as an umbrella organization to connect members to medical education opportunities throughout the 4+ years of medical school, to facilitate interactions between students, residents and faculty mentors, and to develop formal and informal medical education programs. MedEd collaborates closely with the Office of Education, the Teaching and Learning Center, the Yale School of Medicine, and the Yale-New Haven Hospital. Through the encouragement of skill development, scholarship, leadership, and mentorship, MedEd hopes to contribute to the increasing status of medical education at Yale.
Thank you for taking the time to check out website and please feel free to contact any of us with any questions or comments.
The MedEd Interest Group Leadership Team
