Educating the Educators

Our model forum, created by residency program directors, focuses on faculty development and engagement, curriculum development, and resident education. Communicating critical content to medical students and residents requires effective teaching and mentoring skills. Symposia, free papers, small group networking sessions, and poster sessions, provide a platform for exchanging and exploring innovative approaches to training and counseling with an emphasis on evidence based practice and results. Syllabus

Book Club Small Group Discussions - moderated by Jeffrey SooHoo, MD
Plan to join the EE Book Club to discuss the highly engaging and popular book, Mindset, by by Carol Dweck, PhD. Dweck is a psychologist who pioneered the concept of mindset, and in particular, the differences between having a “fixed” versus “growth” mindset. Those with a growth mindset believe that abilities can be developed and are more active, engaged learners compared to those who believe that abilities are static. Importantly, Dweck describes opportunities to apply these concepts throughout multiple facets of our work and lives. The roles we play as educator-leaders in our departments allows us to foster “growth” mindset amongst our trainees and faculty, improving the quality of our work lives and our overall wellbeing.
