The UK COM is dedicated to developing the teaching and assessment skills of our residents and fellows. We begin introducing teaching skills during Housestaff orientation with a session dedicated to setting expectations and providing feedback. We offer further opportunities throughout training to prepare all trainees for their teaching roles.
To prepare for their roles in medical student education, intern orientation provides didactic sessions dedicated to teaching skill development.
Chief Resident Retreat
The UK COM sponsors a retreat for rising chief residents each spring. This retreat provides a foundation in educational leadership and mentoring, skills essential to a chief resident’s success!
