Clinical educator training program started

Pitt's medical school has approved the new degree-granting Clinician Educator Training Program (CETP), designed for fellows and faculty in general medicine, sub-specialty medicine, pediatrics, family medicine and psychiatry whose career focus is medical education and clinical teaching.

CETP has three components: (1) core courses plus observed teaching activities focusing on adult learning, enhancing classroom and clinical teaching skills, curriculum development, professional development and leadership, innovative strategies in medical education and medical administration; (2) a set of core courses to provide trainees with a standardized set of research skills, and (3) the completion of a mentored research project or a project on curriculum development.

Completion of the core curriculum leads to a Certificate in Medical Education. Completing the core courses and 15 credit hours of electives, along with a predetermined research, curriculum development or thesis project, leads to a master of science in medical education from the School of Medicine.

The CETP is directed by Rosanne Granieri, director, Clinician Educator Track, Division of General Internal Medicine. The co-director is Wishwa Kapoor, chief of the Division of General Internal Medicine.
