Pediatrics – General Pediatrics

Fellowship Program

Pedagogy of Teaching and Communication

The majority of academic faculty, including primary care medical researchers, teach and communicate with other professionals. For the past eight years, during their first year, the fellows have participated in the Learning to Teach and Communicate seminar. The seminar focuses on the pedagogy of teaching and the development of communication and teaching skills.  The seminar was significantly modified three years ago. The seminar was shortened from 12 months to nine months. 

The first six months are devoted to specific skills development. The remaining three months are devoted to the planning and implementation a faculty development workshop. The seminar meets 3-4 times per month for two hours.  It culminates in a faculty development workshop for community physicians, junior faculty, and other fellows, with the trainees acting as faculty. The seminar attendees practice their teaching skills as they implement the workshop.
