The curriculum of the General Pediatric Master Educator Fellowship will be divided into four major components:
The Online Master’s Degree in Education (MEd) for Health Care Professionals will offer the formal part of the curriculum. This curriculum includes a) 12 core courses (each 3 credit hours) focusing on adult learning, curriculum and instruction, and educational measurement and research; b) a 3-credit-hour practicum with supervised teaching and an electronic educational portfolio project; c) a 3-credit-hour independent project (capstone project) which will be a project based on a specialty area ( caring for the underserved, innovation educational methods, population health, health literacy and medical informatics/technology); and d) the 3-hour master’s project, an educational research project. Fellows will have approximately 40% protected time to accomplish the requirements of the MEd program.
The Professional and Leadership Development Series component of the General Pediatric Master Educator Fellowship will be an ongoing seminar which spans both years of the program. The seminars will emphasize competencies necessary for today’s clinician educator: 1) educational scholarship (e.g. formal poster and platform presentations, manuscript and grant writing), 2) academic leadership (e.g. administrative and managerial skills, strategic planning, change theory healthcare organization and delivery, coaching and mentoring, models for community-based education); 3) personal career development (e.g. strategies for life-long learning, job/salary negotiation, career trajectories, work-life balance, advocacy and professionalism); and 4) specialty areas of focus (e.g. caring for the underserved, innovation educational methods, population health, health literacy and medical informatics/technology).
The professional development seminar will include monthly meetings for the fellows to present and receive feedback on work in their specialty areas of focus, critique medical education literature, utilize electronic resources for medical education and participate in interactive learning sessions, topics described below, with content experts. Professional and Leadership Development activities will account for approximately 15% of the fellows’ time in the program. Potential topics for the series are listed below.
Topics for the Professional and Leadership Development Series include:
Leadership and Administration
Supervised Teaching will occur in general pediatric sites including the hospital-based outpatient PPCC, the community-based HSHC and FPPCC, and the inpatient GIS. Teaching in these areas will include supervised clinic precepting and inpatient rounds, general pediatric curriculum development (part of our online primary care curriculum), regular feedback with the residents and medical students, and resident and medical student evaluation. In addition to clinical teaching, fellows will have regular opportunities for supervised teaching in more formal arenas, including the Primary Care Series noon conference, the Primary Care Track Roundtables, the four-day Basic Faculty Development Workshop (bi-annual), the two-day Regional Educator Faculty Development workshop (annual), the Resident Advocacy rotation including the Surviving Poverty in Cincinnati curriculum, the Medical Education Research Group, and community education programs (school health programs for teaching staff, parenting classes, and health fairs). Supervised teaching activities will account for approximately 20% of fellows’ time in the program.
Patient Care Activities are included as an integral part of the overall fellowship program to help fellows build their clinical experience in general pediatrics. Although the fellows’ primary role in these settings will be patient care, there will be a senior faculty present for advice, questions, and consultation, which will enhance this experiential learning aspect of the fellowship. Because the senior faculty are experienced in the needs and evidence-based care of underserved populations, these clinical sessions will provide the opportunity the fellows to learn how to provide for these needs in a primary care setting.
Fellows will provide care in several diverse general pediatrics sites that all care for patients from underserved populations:
