"Medical Education Day makes a statement of how important we value the educational mission here at Feinberg. Without the excellence of medical educators who work every day with our students and residents, we would not be producing high-quality physicians — so I appreciate that we pause and recognize educational excellence."
Walter Eppich, MD, PhD, Director of FAME

"Medical Education Day provides an opportunity to showcase our educators and their scholarship and expertise while celebrating the unique medical education environment that we are privileged to have at Feinberg."

Faculty/Speaker Disclosure Statement
and
Disclosure for Discussions of Off-Label/Investigational Use of Pharmaceutical Products

In accordance with ACCME Standards for Commercial Support of Continuing Medical Education and the Feinberg School of Medicine’s disclosure policy for CME activities, all individuals who contribute to the content or the identification / resolution of potential conflicts of interest must disclose any relationship they may have with any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients within the preceding 12 months of the activity. Such disclosure is intended to provide participants with sufficient information to evaluate whether any given presentation has been influence by the faculty’s relationships(s) or financial interest with said companies.

Circumstances create a conflict of interest when an individual has an opportunity to affect CME content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship. The purpose for identifying and addressing potential conflicts of interest is to ensure a proper balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor of the medical school’s educational activities. The medical school does not view the existence of a financial relationship as necessarily implying bias or decreasing the value of participation in CME activities, but must ensure that a financial interest is not a conflict of interest. Identifying Conflict of Interest: A six-tier peer review system has been developed to identify possible conflicts of interests.

What do we find difficult to talk about, and why? In this interactive keynote workshop, we will explore the barriers that prevent medical professionals from talking about social justice and their own well being as educators and as practitioners. And we will consider pedagogies for dialogue and "unsilencing" what medical professionals, educators, students, and patients can find difficult to talk about with one another.

Coaching is increasingly being recognized as a useful tool in medical education. While we often think of coaching as involving an "expert" and a "learner", peer coaching - coaching between colleagues with similar experience levels - is becoming more prominent as a form of faculty development. In this interactive workshop, participants will become familiar with the concepts of coaching and peer coaching ("what"). Facilitators will then guide the group in exploring barriers to and benefits of peer coaching ("why"), and how peer coaching aligns with adult learning theory. Finally, participants will learn coaching techniques and have the opportunity to practice peer coaching in a variety of scenarios (“how”). After completing this workshop, participants are encouraged to incorporate peer coaching in their clinical and educational practice.

Learning Objectives
At the completion of the lecture, participants will be able to:

  1. Define peer coaching
  2. Understand the benefits of peer coaching
  3. Practice peer coaching techniques in a variety of scenarios

 TIME Keynote Lecture & Awards Announcement – Promoting Competency through Rapid Cycle Deliberate Practice: a Paradigm Shift in Health Professions Education

Co-Chair of the Johns Hopkins CPR Advisory Committee

With the advent of competency-based medical education, we need efficient and effective strategies to support clinical learners. This session explores the origins and outcomes of a novel approach to simulation-based education called rapid cycle deliberate practice (RCDP). RCDP focuses meticulously on skill acquisition and development. Essential to this process is deliberate creation of a “learning lab and excellence environment” that enables the learner to not only receive, but ideally crave direct feedback and opportunities for repetitive practice. These opportunities allow learners to rapidly improve and experience success at targeted skills and behaviors. RCDP was designed to diagnose performance gaps and rapidly close those gaps with targeted feedback and “prescriptions”, and ensure that the learner meets a specific level of performance such that RCDP can be considered a learner-centered, “precision education” instructional strategy.

Learning Objectives
At the completion of the lecture, participants will be able to:

  1. Define RCDP and discuss the evidence that supports use of RCDP.
  2. Describe why RCDP is a learner-centered, “precision education” instructional strategy
  3. Identify opportunities to apply principles of RCDP in your educational setting

Clinical educators must often facilitate difficult conversations that demand honesty while also preserving effective working relationships. Although these difficult conversations never become “easy”, educators can employ a number of learner-centered strategies to share honest feedback in ways that support clinical trainees and maintain relationships. During this session, participants will receive brief interactive didactic inputs, group discussion, and role play to learn key skills.

Learning Objectives
At the completion of the lecture, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify specific challenges associated with difficult feedback conversations
  2. Demonstrate strategies to manage learners’ reactions to critical feedback
  3. Share honest feedback while preserving relationships

Omari Keeles, PhD

Assistant Director for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

This workshop offers a foundation for defining diversity, equity, inclusion and other related concepts/constructs (e.g., climate, context) meaningful to inclusive teaching. During this workshop, participants will explore national trends, specifically from other highly selective medical schools/colleges, related to students’ learning experiences in these distinct educational contexts. Participants will also be introduced to theoretical and empirical literature that delineates factors that promote and inhibit inclusive classroom and learning environments. The workshop aims to answer the questions: What is DEI? Why should I care about it? What is an equitable and inclusive learning environment and in what ways does it benefit all of my students? What are my first steps toward becoming a more inclusive educator?

Learning Objectives
At the completion of the lecture, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify factors that influence classroom and learning environments climate
  2. Reflect on principles of inclusive teaching
  3. Identify actionable strategies for fostering equitable and inclusive learning environments and curricular experiences for all students
