A hands-on comparative physiology-based faculty development program aimed to equip clinician educators with the confidence and ability to integrate physiology and mechanistic thinking into their daily clinical teaching and medical decision making. Participants will conduct actual comparative physiology experiments using aquatic species, designed to enhance understanding of basic physiologic principles in humans. They will use this experience as a springboard for developing their own physiology teaching scripts, with the goal of leaving the course with renewed confidence in, and tangible products for, incorporating pathophysiology into teaching on the wards.
Applications are now open (rolling admission)
Applications due by August 31, 2016
- To inspire clinician educators to teach physiology on the wards and incorporate mechanistic thinking into their clinical decision making.
- To give clinician educators the time and the space to re-familiarize themselves with basic concepts of physiology applicable to the internal medicine wards using hands on comparative physiology experiments.
- To give clinician educators durable tools and resources so that they are able to locate and review the physiology and mechanisms of disease processes in their ongoing clinical and teaching roles.
Teaching Hospitalists and General Internal Medicine Inpatient Educators
Faculty development will be integrated throughout the course in order to enhance participants’ ability to translate new knowledge into effective teaching.
