The Resident as Teacher Interest Group aims to provide guidance to faculty and chief residents in creating formal curricula to help train residents and fellows as teachers. Our goals are to: (1) create a best-practice curricula for Harvard training programs so all house staff receive formal training and evaluation in teaching skills; (2) ensure all trainees understand the goals and objectives of Harvard Medical students in the various rotations.

Resident as Teacher Academy Interest Group Symposium: Resident/Fellow as Teacher Leadership Curriculum Showcase
Thursday, September 7, 2017 ~ 3:00 - 5:00 PM 


The Resident as Teacher Leadership Curricula Showcase was an opportunity to learn about the leadership curricula for trainees currently being offered in Harvard-affiliated residency programs and fellowships. Leadership skills are increasingly recognized as vital to being a good educator and clinical manager, and training programs aim to help trainees become leaders in medicine. Area faculty and trainees were invited to present some of their best offerings in leadership training, curricula, and other programing with other residency program directors, fellowship directors, and core faculty in order to provide programs with ideas and tools to implement formal leadership instructions for trainees.  

Resident as Teacher Academy Interest Group Symposium: Teaching and Learning from Consultation 
Thursday, February 25, 2016- 3:00-5:00 PM

The frequency of consultation in inpatient medicine is increasing. Therefore, the specialty consultation represents an important opportunity for resident work-based learning. Teaching in the setting of inpatient consultation may also have a broad reaching impact by improving patient care, enhancing critical thinking by our learners, empowering the primary team to participate in care decisions and improving the teaching skills of future faculty. However, teaching in the setting of consultation can be challenging due to multiple factors.

This symposium will examine factors affecting the consult interaction, propose interventions to enhance the consult interaction, particularly between residents and fellows and focus on two skills important for teaching during consultation 1) how to ask effective questions to engage and assess the learner and 2) utilize a framework for teaching in the time-limited setting of consultation.

The symposium will provide participant trainees skills that can be used to teach during consultation and will help program directors and consultants teach such skills to trainees.
