Medical Education Research
The Fellowship in Medical Education is a research program offered by the Center for Excellence in Medical Education (CEME) that aims to introduce clinicians and scientists to the issues of thinking about and conducting research and scholarship in medical education.
Educational scholarship and research are quite different from their equivalents in science and clinical practice. This means that anyone with a clinical or scientific background will need support in making the transition. The fellowship program provides that support.
Participants will develop an individual project in medical education which they will present their final projects during the annual William Davidson Medical Education Week, May 18-20, 2015. The FME program participants will meet one Friday per month to attend a MERCshop offered by AAMC. They will also have some online requirements where they will participate in the online classroom to discuss their projects and share ideas.
- Plan a scholarly or research project in medical education.
- Critique research reports in Medical Education.
- Utilize a range of research methods in Medical Education.

Teaching and Curriculum
Why participation is important? Medical education is an exciting but rapidly developing field. The medical education certificate introduces clinicians and scientists to both the theory and practice of medical education. A range of issues will be covered, varying from the practicalities of running classes to the underlying theories that inform and guide what we do in the classroom.
The CME faculty will generally, meet face-to-face twice a month on Fridays from noon - 2 p.m. Faculty will also be expected to participate in a weekly online discussion forum (about 30-60 minutes per week) focusing on a range of topics to support their development as teachers. This program will begin August 28, 2015 and conclude June 10, 2016.
The course provides a basic knowledge of medical education, including but not limited to teaching large or small groups, using technology and audiovisual aids, curriculum theory, pedagogy, transformative learning, and mentoring. Scholarship and research of medical education will also be introduced.
The core objectives of the OUWB Certificate in Medical Education are:
- Demonstrate the foundational, practical and theoretical knowledge needed to participate as a teacher in medical education in the early twenty first century.
- Identify current trends and debates in the field.
- Develop techniques as a teaching practitioner.
Approximately 25% of a resident’s time is spent in supervising, teaching and evaluating medical students. However, many residents may not have experience in formal teaching roles or they may have insufficient teaching skills.
The Resident as Teachers Program will provide residents exposure to medical teaching concepts and provide them with an opportunity to improve their teaching skills through role-play and other activities. Residents attending 100% of the sessions shall receive a certificate of Advanced Training in Medical Education.
This program has been divided into two sections. The first section will consist of the Stanford Faculty Development Clinical Teachers curriculum. This will be taught by seven Beaumont physicians who attended a month long training program to become facilitators for small group sessions (6-8 residents). These seven bimonthly sessions will include videos vignettes and role-plays. These sessions will be offered either 7-9 am or 5-7pm to accommodate residents’ schedules. The second portion of the program will consist of interactive plenary sessions on the third Wednesday of every month from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. Invited guest speakers who shall address medical education topics not covered in the small group sessions will deliver the plenary sessions.
Core ObjectivesThe program will cover topics including:
- Learning Climate
- Control of Session
- Communicating Goals
- Understanding and Retention
- Self-directed learning
- Teaching Clinical Reasoning
- Navigating Academic Promotion
