Feedback Resources

Feedback is an integral part of development, especially for learners. The Feinberg Academy of Medical Educators (FAME) serves as a resource to assist faculty and trainees to become more effective educators by offering knowledge and tools to improve the giving and receiving of feedback.  

 

New Resource

FAME is excited to announce a new module: Using Coaching to Give and Receive Feedback. Developed by Priya Jain, MD, MEd, this module addresses how to utilize best practices and coaching to provide meaningful feedback that promotes a growth mindset.

JiTT infographics are adaptable to an array of clinical specialties and include foundational teaching principles in areas such as setting expectations, questioning techniques, feedback and coaching, and bedside teaching. Clinically specific teaching techniques include content pertaining to internal and family medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, surgery psychiatry and neurology. Sub-specialties are also included.
