Residents as Teachers
Welcome to the Residents as Teachers website constructed in collaboration with the Educational Ground Rounds campus-wide effort to promote effective teaching and educational scholarship. Currently listed as resource materials for residents as teachers are:
The LCME standard
and annotations explaining the requirement for training residents to teach.
A Resident as Teacher Powerpoint
presentation that you may use in its entirety or any portion thereof. Feel free to modify, add appropriate information, allow the residents to view online themselves or through formal presentations, etc.
The ability to print off a hand-out of the Residents as Teachers modules. A detailed handout is available below under "Technically Speaking."
Each presentation must also include a review or copy of the educational objectives for that particular clerkship or rotation.
Please ADD to these resources by providing information via email to Nancy Hall, Ph.D., Associate Dean for Academic Affairs (firstname.lastname@example.org) or John Zubialde, MD, Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education (email@example.com).
The LCME Standard
Educational Program for the MD degree – Teaching and Evaluation ED-24.
ED-24. Residents who supervise or teach medical students, as well as graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the biomedical sciences who serve as teachers or teaching assistants, must be familiar with the educational objectives of the course or clerkship and be prepared for their roles in teaching and evaluation.
The minimum expectations for achieving compliance with this standard are that: (a) residents and other instructors who do not hold faculty ranks (such as graduate students and postdoctoral fellows) should receive a written copy of the course/clerkship objectives and clear guidance from the course/clerkship director about their roles in teaching and evaluating medical students; and (b) that the institution and/or relevant departments provide resources such as workshops/written materials to enhance the teaching and evaluation skills of residents and other non-faculty instructors. There should be central monitoring of the level of resident/other instructor participation in activities to enhance their teaching/evaluation skills. The LCME encourages formal assessment of the teaching and evaluation skills of residents and other non-faculty instructors, with opportunities provided for remediation if their performance is inadequate. Assessment methods could include direct observation by faculty, feedback from students through course/clerkship evaluations or focus groups, or any other suitable method.
