Clinician Educator Track



Categorical Internal Medicine Program at Rutgers NJMS


The Clinician Educator track activities will provide additional experience to the overall training in categorical General Internal Medicine. The goal of this track is to expose residents to various aspects of teaching Medicine to students and residents at various levels of training, in both inpatient and outpatient setting, in preparation for an academic career, whether in General Internal Medicine or a medical subspecialty.

Residents will opt in the Clinician Educator at the end of their intern year. The curriculum will span the PGY-II and III years, and consists in a 2-year longitudinal didactic structure, practical exercises in teaching medical students and residents under direct observation by faculty, and structured mentorship. Residents are encouraged to engage in a research project applied to medical education. By graduation time, all residents will have built a teaching portfolio applied to medical education.

The residents will receive education on specific topics pertaining to medical education, which will include but are not limited to: adult learning theories and their application to medical education, bedside teaching in both inpatient and outpatient settings, feedback techniques, “flipped classroom” and team based learning methodology applied to medical education
