The curriculum of the General Pediatric Master Educator Fellowship will be divided into four major components:
The Professional and Leadership Development 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, 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 and/or the inpatient hospital medicine service. Teaching in these areas will include supervised precepting/teaching utilizing an observed structured teaching evaluation (OSTE), curriculum development, feedback and milestone evaluation with residents and medical students. In addition to clinical teaching, fellows will have regular opportunities for presenting 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 Scholarship Team, 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:
