Residents and fellows are important in the development and education of medical students and their participation at all of our partner institutions is valued deeply. Resources listed below are meant to enhance the "residents as teachers" program throughout our community.

Clerkships

All sites where students rotate and may be supervised by residents and/or fellows must provide training on how to locate the UA College of Medicine – Phoenix Educational Program Objectives and specific clerkship learning objectives, required clinical encounters and the assessment methods. These can be found in the syllabus for each clerkship.

Development of Resident Teaching Skills:

Residents benefit from additional instruction on how to best teach students. This is addressed at the College of Medicine – Phoenix in several different ways:

  1. In-person sessions sponsored by the College of Medicine – Phoenix onsite or elsewhere at other teaching sites.
  2. Sessions that exist as part of their residency program curriculum. Residency programs are requested to submit this information annually so that the college can assure that all residents are receiving training.
  3. College of Medicine – Phoenix sponsored web-based training.
  4. Other faculty development resources.
  5. See Additional Resources (Below).
