OCRME offers several options to learn about teaching and education, both brief topic-based sessions and more comprehensive training. Each year we invite a well-known medical educator to visit our campus to conduct workshops or seminars. Current offerings can be found through the Workshops and Seminars link
For learning at your convenience we maintain a collection of on-line learning resources on teaching topics, including clinical teaching.
For those who wish to help others develop teaching skills we offer the Teaching Scholars program. Participants selected for this program attend monthly training sessions for 10 months and then work with us to develop a teaching improvement project for their department or the College at large. A similar program provides advanced training for faculty from regional education sites and community-based workshops.
Our consultants will also work one on one with faculty members to improve aspects of his or her teaching. We can create an individualized program to help you assess your current skills, identify areas you would like to improve, and create a program to help you achieve your goals.
