The Faculty Development and Teaching Course is a week-long educational experience that combines didactic sessions, group discussions, and interactive workshops. Great care will be taken to ensure that class interactions are lively and that slides and PowerPoint presentations are not the sole teaching modality. Course faculty members will be onsite throughout the conference, ensuring that the learning environment is rich in discussion and that mentoring takes a central role in participants’ overall experience. Participants will attend part of a 5-hour educational session that is part of our emergency medicine residency and will learn cutting-edge techniques on how to incorporate the use of simulation and procedural education into their own clinical practice and educational programs. Attendees will also tour the adult emergency department at the University of Maryland Medical Center, the clinical areas of the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, and the administrative and operational offices of the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS).
Our goal is to provide course participants with…
- a framework for faculty development that will help you advance in your career and return home, ready to make valuable contributions to your department and medical facility
- cutting-edge information that will dramatically improve your skills as medical educator
- short-term and long-term mentoring in a faculty development and medical education project
- an established relationship with the course faculty for long-term career enhancement
You are in for a treat, because the faculty for the faculty development and teaching course are enthusiastic, energetic, and well-known educators in emergency medicine and critical care medicine. In addition to Amal Mattu, Rob Rogers, Terry Mulligan, Haney Mallemat, and many others, we will have several new guest speakers this year. Michelle Lin will be joining us, and we have one more faculty member we are working on getting here.
The 2012 course was a great success, and we have lots of new and exciting material to add to the 2013 course. More interaction, more teaching labs, more fun educational technology toys to play with, addition of how to teach ultrasound, and lots lots more. You won’t want to miss this premiere event in medical education and faculty development.
The International Faculty Development and Teaching Course is going to be awesome.
