Our Curricula

Professional Formation; Humanities and Ethics

This fellowship will work with faculty to enhance their abilities to be institutional leaders in promoting professional formation in their trainees.

Participants will be encouraged to evaluate the goals of their own health care system, professionalism curricula, and create programs to strengthen faculty skills to successful curriculum implementation at the UME, GME and practicing physician level. 

Organizational Professionalism

Over the course of medicine’s modern day professionalism movement, professionalism largely has been framed as an issue of individual motives and behaviors. We will explore how organizational professionalism will shift this framing.

Scholars are encouraged to explore individual or systems perspectives on resilience related to clinical practice, education and training, or the wellbeing of practitioners and communities of practice.

Social Justice & Advocacy

Participants will be encouraged to evaluate the goals of their own health professions, clinics, hospitals, and health systems curricula in order to effectively engage local and disadvantaged communities to create trust, promote health and foster accountability.

Participants will evaluate ways in which interprofessional education experiences within their own institutions can improve teamwork, communication and collaboration in order to improve the health of patients and their communities.  

Assessment and remediation will focus on the importance of comprehensive and longitudinal assessments of professionalism competencies (Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes) across the continuum of learning.
