As a participant in prior Harvard Medical School CME courses, we invite you to join us for a comprehensive program designed to improve your teaching and enhance your development as a skillful clinician educator. The course, Principles of Medical Education: Maximizing Your Teaching Skills, will be held on April 7-9, 2011 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

New or experienced teachers, from all specialties, will benefit from this highly-regarded course that teaches the educational principles and skills needed to teach successfully in a wide range of clinical settings. Through dynamic small group sessions, insightful plenaries, and experiential activities, participants will learn how to: assess a trainee and provide effective feedback, present a lecture, lead a case-based discussion, teach at the bedside, balance the needs of students and patients, use educational technology, and challenge learners to move from "knowing" to "understanding."

Participants will network and engage with like-minded educators from across the country to discuss their educational challenges and share successful teaching strategies. Course facilitators are Harvard Medical School faculty members with advanced training in medical education and extensive experience teaching medical students, residents, and faculty.
