  • Create a best-practice curricula for Harvard training programs so all house staff receive formal training and evaluation in teaching skills
  • Ensure all trainees understand the goals and objectives of Harvard Medical students in the various rotations

To date we have:

  1. Created a slide deck for orienting all Harvard Medical School housestaff to their roles as educators in clinical medicine, which is being implemented at all the major Harvard teaching hospitals.

  2.  Created a best-practice checklist for Resident-as-Teacher programs for Departments to utilize in enhancing their training in medical education for residents.

  3.  On February 14, 2013 the Academy Resident as Teacher Interest Group held a symposia, “Residents as Teachers: Training the Next Generation of Medical Educators.”  


Implement best practice check list in Harvard training programs and use it to serve as a national model
