Teaching skills are necessary tools to have to be a successful Osteopathic physician. We teach our patients through patient education, and often help to educate inter professional team members, other physicians, and medical trainees. This track allows you to explore & develop your teaching skills through a variety of possible activities from teaching in preclinical labs, developing & delivering a lecture, creating learning materials for patients/students/etc, and developing curricula.
There are several ways to approach designing a specialty project in academic medicine. One is to use the resources below in a combination that suits your learning needs. A second is to work with the primary care department on a “Taste of the Fellowship” project – described below. Finally, design your own: We’ve had students create elective courses, medical spanish curriculum, attend academic medicine conferences, teach medical topics to fellow third years …..
- AND write an article (it could be a personal opinion piece or a review article on an aspect of medical education) for publication.
