Develop a Program of Graduate and Continuing Medical Education by Selecting and Training a Faculty of Practicing Physicians. Final Report.
Wadsworth, W. J.; Michael, Max, Jr.
The development of a faculty of practicing physicians for use as peer teachers was investigated by the Jacksonville Hospitals Education Program (JHEP) in this 3-year study. The participants initially consisted of approximately 30 physicians selected on the basis of contribution to graduate education and apparent interest in medical education. Participation developed to expand the faculty to 15 practicing physicians. The faculty participated in most continuing education activities in Jacksonville. Their contributions ranged between moderating a panel of outside experts to developing and teaching solely at a conference, to actively teaching house staff and medical students. Opinion surveys, statistical analyses and other studies indicated a significant and favorable impact on medical education and the community. Appendices include related program material. (MJM)
