Foundational to the practice of medicine is the role of educator. Be it teaching our patients, our medical students and residents, or our professional colleagues, we engage each other to push ourselves as we pursue excellence in medical care and expand the breadth and depth of our fields. Integral to that goal is the development of strong educators in our field. I have the expertise, leadership, training, and motivation necessary to successfully carry out the proposed research project designing, implementing and assessing a two-week course that will provide the pedagogical underpinnings for residents to develop their skills as educators. My academic career focus has been undergraduate and, to a lesser extent, graduate medical education. During my tenure at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, I have either led or served on every major medical education office committee and have over the last four years assumed the role of Director for the Core Clinical Curriculum. During my four years, I led the integration and restructuring of our traditional nine clerkships into four longitudinally structured clinical courses which focus on scaffolding clinical practices, professional development and basic science knowledge across our 250-mile statewide campus. The current application builds logically on my prior work in curriculum design, implementation and assessment.
