Growing Teachers: Using Electives to Teach Senior Residents How to Teach
Martins, Alexandra R.; Arbuckle, Melissa R.; Rojas, Alicia A.; Cabaniss, Deborah L.
Academic Psychiatry, v34 n4 p291-293 Jul-Aug 2010
Objective: Many physicians teach but few are taught how to teach, particularly through pedagogical interventions. The authors describe a method for teaching curriculum development and classroom skills to psychiatric residents using an elective in the fourth postgraduate year. Methods: An elective in pedagogy provided a framework for the planning, teaching, and evaluation phases of developing a new course. Results: The elective resulted in four new, well-received courses and encouraged two participants to pursue careers in academic psychiatry. Conclusion: The elective helped residents achieve essential teaching skills, foster mentoring relationships with senior teaching faculty, and develop as future junior faculty members.
