Resident Teaching Scholars Program

This year, Kaiser Permanente East Bay and Highland Hospital launched a joint Resident Teaching Scholars Program.  The purpose of this program is to develop an immersion experience for senior residents interested in further development of their teaching skills, partly based upon the Clinical Teaching Model developed by Kelley Skeff and Georgette Stratos at the Stanford Faculty Development Center.

Objectives:
-        Practice interactive teaching skills
-        Develop understanding of adult learning theory
-        Reflect upon teaching style, strengths, and weaknesses
-        Collaborate with residents across disciplines

Details: Four 3-hour sessions:
-        September 2: Introduction to Adult Learning and Learning Climate
-        October 14: Control of Session and Teaching Efficiency Models
-        November 4: Communication of Goals
-        December 2: Assessing and Evaluating Your Learner and Giving Feedback

Candidates for participation are R2 and above in any residency program at Highland Hospital and Kaiser East Bay Medical Center.
Sessions involve pre-reading, intrasession video recording and feedback, reflection pieces and an observed teaching interaction with feedback.

Instructors: Davida Flattery, DO, Lindsay Mazotti, MD, and Rebecca Chasnovitz, MD
