About the course

The apprenticeship model is at the heart of medical education--all doctors-in-training must also become teachers. Yet medical education generally provides very little training on how to be an effective educator. This course, developed by the Stanford Faculty Development Center for Medical Teachers, provides practical approaches for improving teaching practice among medical teachers including clinicians, basic scientists, and postdoctoral scholars. For over 30 years, the curriculum has been refined and disseminated, through a train-the-trainer model, to academic institutions around the world.

The course takes a non-prescriptive approach that you can apply, regardless of the teaching philosophy you use, to a broad range of learners, content areas, and instructional settings. You will strengthen your ability to establish a positive learning climate and communicate goals. You will master effective techniques to promote understanding and retention, give feedback and evaluate learners, and promote self-directed learning.

What you will learn

  • How to analyze and improve your teaching using a conceptual framework and behavioral suggestions
  • How to incorporate course concepts and behaviors into your preferred teaching philosophy and method
  • How to formulate personal plans for teaching improvement
