The aim of the Phase 3 Teaching Thread is to provide an active experience as a medical educator that allows senior students to build the necessary skills in evidence-based teaching, mentorship, feedback and self-assessment aiding them in the transition to residency. Additionally, the Teaching Selective provides FSM graduates an opportunity to differentiate themselves from other institutions’ applicants because FSM is one of the few institutions that requires a teaching as a graduation requirement in their curriculum. Students have the opportunity to teach first- and second year-medical student small groups and are paired with junior students to practice mentorship and provide feedback. Students receive feedback on their teaching in both the clinical and small group settings. In preparation for residency, students review their feedback, reflect and create a teaching improvement plan.
