Physician as Educator – Signature Program

“Physician-as-Educator” is an innovative program developed to provide online, self-paced career development training for physicians holding a faculty appointment from the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix. Topics covered include: approaches for teaching effectively when time is limited; setting expectations; giving and receiving feedback; education theory; improving communication in a team-based environment; learning styles; approaches for challenging teaching environments and more!

A hybrid option with in-person, interactive case-based reflective discussion sessions to deepen and enhance learning is available. This can be facilitated at the site of practice — during faculty meetings. Content can be completed flexibly over nine months, either individually or in cohorts. A facilitator guide will be available upon request for use by program directors, department chairs or other clinical leadership at a participating site.
