Day 3 Morning

We started this last day with a session on Curriculum Design by Dr. Morgan Soffler (@msoffler). Although other design methods exist, she focused on Kern’s 6 step curriculum design: problem identification, targeted needs assessment, goals &objectives, educational strategies, implementation, evaluation & feedback. Dr. Soffler stressed that this is not a linear process and is iterative.

Next, we had an enthusiastic talk from Dr. Ted James (@tedjamesmd) about leading change in medical education. Dr. James inspired us to go back to the groups or organizations we lead and make some changes! Times are changing and change requires leadership! Medical education should reflect the realities of clinical practice, so change is needed. Leading change starts with vision and ends with impact with strategy and training necessary steps along the way.

We finished off the course with a powerful and inspiring talk on a difficult subject – cultivating wellbeing– by Dr. Charlie Hatem. He shared with us some well-being strategies: taking care of oneself, caring for significant others, valuing work and its satisfactions among others. He also stressed one of the themes of this course – we are leaders and we need to care for ourselves - “Care about people always begins with caring for self.” Self care is not selfish! This last talk was a gift. Thank you all for sharing in this gift.
