Medical Education Grand Rounds.
Students as Teachers: Creating Opportunities for Senior Medical Students to Teach Junior Medical Students in Courses and Clerkships
Wednesday, April 9, 2014 – 4:00-5:30 pm - TMEC Walter Amphitheater - RSVP
David Furfaro, Jeffrey Cohen, Kimberly Kopecky, Kent Garber, and Michael Lester, HMS IV
An increasing number of courses and clerkships have created opportunities for senior medical students to get extra training and become involved in teaching junior peers while still in school. This moves the "resident as teacher" paradigm downstream, and presents many advantages for both the students who are teaching and the students who are learning. In this session, fourth year students who have been involved in course and clerkship teaching at HMS will share their experiences and advice about how to incorporate these opportunities into more of the curriculum.
Team-based learning: Re-thinking the Concept of Small Group Instruction
Friday, May 2, 2014 – 7:30-9:00 am - TMEC Walter Amphitheater - RSVP

Jeremy B. Richards, M.D., M.A., Assistant Professor of Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
Amy M. Sullivan, Ed.D., Associate Director of Education Research, the Academy, Harvard Medical School
Medical educators who have sought new methods of active learning for students have turned to Team-based learning (TBL) as an alternative to Problem-based Learning (PBL). In this session the logic and methods of TBL will be reviewed, and outcomes data will be presented based on modifications of the TBL model used in the Human Physiology course at HMS.
A Pathway to Culture Change in Medical Schools
Friday, June 6, 2014 – 7:30-9:00 am - TMEC Walter Amphitheater - RSVP

C - Change aims to promote an inclusive, humanistic, relational and energizing working environment for all medical school faculty and physicians in training, at the same time increasing the diversity of leadership in academic medicine. In this interactive session, participants will discuss some of the national qualitative and quantitative data generated by C - Change.
