Policy on Educational Skills Development for Residents
At the Zucker School of Medicine, residents and fellows must be familiar with the learning objectives of the course or clerkship (“course”) and are expected to participate in activities that prepare them for their roles in teaching and assessment of medical students.
Residents and fellows receive a list of the course learning objectives annually and are informed of their role as teacher. Additionally, residents and fellows involved in teaching/assessment of medical students are required to review and sign-off on their obligations as an educator via the Educator’s Pledge or its equivalent. Residents and fellows are expected to participate in a Resident as Teacher Series sponsored by the Associate Dean for Educational Skills Development and the Office of Academic Affairs. Chief Residents are expected to participate in the Chief Resident: Leader, Manager, and Mentor sessions sponsored by the Associate Dean for Educational Skills Development and Office of Academic Affairs.
Compliance with this policy is monitored by Northwell Health’s Office of Academic Affairs and the Associate Dean for Educational Skills Development.
