The Faculty Development Core Program is a foundational program to equip teachers in all contexts with core knowledge and skills to teach effectively. The core program comprises five topics with set learning objectives that are key to teaching in Medical and Health Sciences Education.
The five topics are:
Optimizing the Learning Environment: Small Group, Clinical, and Large Group Setting – Attend to context, teacher, learner and content factors in small group, clinical and large group settings.
Feedback and Reflection – Advance learners through effective educational alliances, feedback and reflective processes.
Clinical Reasoning – Facilitate clinical reasoning appropriate to the learner’s stage.
Assessment and Direct Observation – Provide formative and summative assessment with attention to validity and reliability.
Learner Relationships & Learner in Difficulty – Optimize learner and teacher relationships and support learners in difficulty.
These topics will be available this fall in the VFMP area. More locations to come.
The Master Teacher Certificate Program is designed to support medical educators wishing to enhance their teaching and mentoring skills. The program consists of a monthly lecture series, small group discussions, a longitudinal project, and a peer teaching assessment. The program starts in September and runs till next May.
The monthly lecture series features speakers with a wealth of teaching experience and carefully chosen to demonstrate masterful teaching techniques in their presentations. Topics for the lecture series have been selected after a detailed needs assessment and will build on foundational teaching skills that are taught in the ABC Primer Series offered through the UBC Faculty of Medicine Faculty Development Program.
The lecture series is open to all Interior Health staff, while all other program components are designed for registrants only. Both the lectures and small group sessions are videoconferenced from the Clinical Academic Campus at Kelowna General Hospital to Vernon Jubilee Hospital, Royal Inland Hospital, Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, Kootenay Lake Hospital, Castlegar, Grand Forks and Penticton Regional Hospital. Maintenance of Proficiency (MainPro) and Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credits are awarded for participation.
The program consists of 5 in-person workshops covering core topics in health professionals’ education. Each session is 1.5 hours and will accumulate toward a certificate of completion. To learn more about the objectives for each session, click on the registration links below. Active Learning
