New faculty at all ranks will view or attend an overview highlighting the various teaching venues and opportunities at PENN Medicine. New assistant professors will be required to participate in two additional programs which must be completed prior to review for the first reappointment and which most closely relate to their specific teaching responsibilities, their interests and their developmental needs.

Clinical Teaching at the Bedside

ENROLL NOW

Attaining Teaching Excellence Series class

 

Attending physicians strive for excellence in bedside teaching, but may shy away from the bedside because of lack of training, poor previous experiences, or fear of failure. Yet recent regulatory expectations and hospital initiatives both underscore the fundamental role of bedside teaching in the care of the patient.

Attendees of this workshop will:

-- identify reasons why bedside rounds offer a unique opportunity for teaching, particularly of interpersonal communication skills and professionalism;

-- identify and understand the multiple roles played by the attending physician as a leader of, and participant in, bedside rounds;

-- develop skills and a plan for improving their own practice of bedside rounds.
