Clinician Educator

Fellows pursuing advanced training as clinician educators have the opportunity to develop skills in medical education through participating in coursework such as the BIDMC Fellows Clinician Educator Track or the Harvard Macy Educators program (by application). Fellows develop an educational project with mentorship, and hone their teaching and curriculum development skills. Recent projects include curriculum development and assessment for the Harvard Medical School Aging and End of Life Theme, as well as peer-to-peer and interprofessional teaching and learning opportunities.
