Learning from Teaching—Moving Beyond Credit: An Approach to Faculty Development

Learning from Teaching is a means of awarding AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ to faculty members engaged in teaching, supervising, precepting, or evaluating medical students and residents. This webinar explores how various institutions have implemented the program and how Learning from Teaching offers other benefits beyond preceptor credit.

In this webinar, Leslie Doering, Director of CME, Oregon Health and Science University, presents her institution’s experiences with engaging in the program. Jack L. Dolcourt, M.D., M.Ed., Associate Dean of CME, and Brad J. Halvorsen, Director of CME, both of the University of Utah School of Medicine, offer their reflections on the process and lessons learned. Kim M. Denny, M.S., Assistant Director of Education and Quality Improvement, Division of CME, Indiana University School of Medicine, will address the uses of Learning from Teaching for preceptor professional development, with a focus on volunteer faculty. Barbara E. Barnes, M.D., M.S., Assoc. Dean for CME and Assoc. Vice Chancellor for Continuing Education and Industry Support, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, explores other value outcomes, including changing teaching and engagement processes, an assessment tool for clerkship and program directors, and helping to highlight faculty as a visible asset to the institution. The webinar concludes with the panelists responding to questions posed by the participants.
