Full course description

Course Introduction

This course aims to support learners and clinical educators in developing foundational knowledge and skills to be effective and inclusive teachers in the clinical learning environment. Resident teachers are important members of the team of faculty and leaders who support learners in thriving in medical education. Our ability to support each learner in thriving depends on our efforts to ensure equitable access to success. This course emphasizes practices for fostering inclusive learning environments to reduce barriers to succeeding in clerkships and other learning activities. Creating inclusive learning environments is also part of our broader institutional efforts to advance anti-racist practice, promote inclusive excellence, and ultimately strive for health equity.
