Medical Student Education SIG
The Medical Student Education SIG will still be dedicated to be a home for all people who are interested in medical student education. It will disseminate information for faculty development and career development of members. It will partner with other SIGs or other organizations to enhance approach to education and training.
Happy New Year! The Medical Student Education SIG is a home to all with a passion for teaching and for learning new educational techniques.
For this year's session at PAS 2013, the Teaching in Community Settings and Medical Student Education SIGs plan to join forces to present a unique program geared toward teachers of medical students across settings. The first part of the program will focus on techniques to enhance teaching during time-limited clinical settings (such as community/outpatient preceptorships and inpatient rounds). Reflection as a means to enhance and enrich teaching in the domains of clinical reasoning, professional development/empathy, and evidence-based practice will be emphasized.
The second part of the program will highlight best practices and challenges of community medical student education from the perspectives of community teachers and clerkship directors at academic centers. An interactive panel discussion featuring SIG chairs, clerkship directors, and recent graduates will engage audience members to work through community teaching challenges faced by educators of all levels.
We look forward to an interactive session that we expect will meet the needs of all who attend see you there!
