Medical Education Day

The Medical Education & Teaching Distinction Track prepares medical students to be effective medical educators in both academic and clinical settings. This track guides students in developing their interest in academic medicine through the application of learning theory and instructional strategies during a variety of teaching experiences, as well as practical implementation of educational research methodologies.

The first cohort of track Scholars (5 in Class of 2019) has completed its first year of curriculum, including a summer immersion teaching experience. This cohort is currently developing unique medical education research projects which will be implemented over the next two years. Data from these studies will be prepared for manuscript submission prior to graduation. The second cohort of track Scholars (5 in Class of 2020) is slated to begin the track curriculum in May.
