Program for Educators in Health Professions Offered Annually in Boston, MA

The goal of the Harvard Macy Institute Program for Educators in Health Professions is to enhance the professional development of physicians, basic scientists, and other healthcare professionals as educators. The program is built around 7 major themes: the science of learning, teaching skills & strategies, inquiry and evidence in education, curriculum design, examining your assumptions, leadership development, and innovations in education.

The program consists of two sessions in residence at Harvard: a 6-day spring session and a 6-day fall session. Learning formats include large group presentations; interactive exercises; case-method teaching; problem-based learning; observations; reflective use of journals; and discussions in large and small groups. A variety of faculty facilitated small group formats are used to support learning from observations, to draw together scholars with common interests, and to further the development of each scholar’s back home project for educational change.

HUCOM has funding for two faculty members to attend this program with a priority given to projects that have a focus on improving medical student education. In order to receive funding, we ask that you submit your proposal to swati.goel@howard.edu no later than Oct 31st, 2019. The committee of the Office of Faculty Development will review all received proposals and determine which will be funded. Our office can also put you in touch with previous Harvard Macy scholars from the COM who can assist you with proposal development and be a valuable resource. If you submit directly to the Harvard Macy program without first reaching out to the Office of Faculty Development, we will not be able to assist you with funding.

Next Course:

Part 1: May 11 - 16, 2020

Part 2: October 11 - 16, 2020

Please note that there is a change to when this course has been traditionally held.
