The Teaching Scholars Program is a 12-month certificate program designed to enhance knowledge and skills, and develop future leaders in healthcare education with a focus on core components of educational scholarship and curriculum development. The program consists of twice-monthly seminars held on the Washington University Medical Campus during the academic year, a curriculum development and/or education scholarship project completed under faculty mentorship/guidance, and a capstone presentation event. Topics covered include curriculum and instructional design, educational program evaluation, educational research/scholarship of teaching & learning, and leadership/change management in education. Other than the time commitment for attending the sessions, there is no cost for the Program. Applicants must submit a letter from their Department Chair, Division Head, or Program Director that clearly indicates that the applicant will be allowed the time to attend the twice monthly sessions (roughly 4 hours each session), complete the project, and attend the Kick-Off and Project Presentation Events.
