This two or three year track is designed for individuals who are primarily interested careers as clinician-educators, and trains general internists to become leaders in medical education. Click to see the specific objectives for the medical education track. Fellows spend the first year at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (JHBMC) where they receive training in teaching, curriculum development and evaluation, academic administration, and time management by participating in the Teaching Skills and Curriculum Development arms of the nationally recognized Johns Hopkins Faculty Development Program (FDP) for Clinician-Educators. They apply these skills in real-life teaching situations, under supervision of the JHBMC faculty, by co-attending with faculty and by teaching in outpatient and inpatient settings. Fellows receive some training in research skills and work to complete research projects related to medical education.
In addition to regular fellowship conferences, medical education Fellows meet monthly with Drs. David Kern and Scott Wright, the track co-directors. During the second and optional third years of the fellowship, which may be based at either JHH or JHBMC, Fellows implement and evaluate curricula developed in year 1, continue to develop teaching skills in the Facilitator Training Program of the FDP, develop research skills, and complete research projects related to medical education.
