1/ I'm taking a break from #COVID19 infographics and my planned #VirtualTeaching thread this week to provide some concrete #MedEd recommendations for things that all of us can DO to create equal opportunities for black trainees and faculty.
2/ #DEI is the bare minimum. As white faculty, fellows, residents, and students, we are privileged and need to speak up to ADVANCE black individuals.
3/ Here is one concrete recommendation today (which hopefully is already a part of ALL programs who interview students, residents, fellows, and faculty):

✅Require all interviewers to complete implicit bias training.
4/ This article in @AcadMedJournal by @DrQuinnCapers4 demonstrated that implicit bias training intervention led to:

1. Faculty recognizing their bias and considering it during interviews
2. The most diverse incoming class at OSUCOM the following year

journals.lww.com/academicmedici…
5/ There are many additional things that need to be fixed in #MedEd. This is a small, simple step.

If your organization or program isn't already doing this, please start. And my fellow white colleagues - speak up and advocate for this.

1/ On a subspecialty team, we often have students & residents NOT going into our specialty...

...and then fellows who are trying to become experts.

How can we balance our teaching for everyone?

This week: Setting Learning Goals on Consult Teams Image
2/ First, I strongly believe in shared goal-setting, as described in this prior thread by @YihanYangMD


This process is especially important for learners who have CHOSEN the rotation as an elective. They likely have a particular learning need/interest!
3/ And if you have students or residents who are required to rotate in your specialty, shared goal-setting can increase motivation.

For these learners, I use their future career interest to set learning goals in addition to considering what they need to learn for boards.

1/ Have you ever started your day with a great teaching plan...

...then by 12 pm, you've received consult 📟 #10:

"This patient has been hospitalized for 65 days & developed a 🌡️ 2 weeks ago..."
😱

This week: balancing consults & teaching
(w/ principles for primary teams too!) Image
2/ Last week when we asked about your biggest challenge to teaching as a consultant, you answered:

#1: Time constraints
#2: Unpredictable workload

I feel this. This is what makes the day difficult to plan.

3/ Before I move forward, I want to mention some benefits I have that may not be universal:

1⃣ I minimize non-urgent meetings when on service
2⃣ I get some say re: when I'm on service to avoid overlapping with other commitments
3⃣ Our clinics are canceled when on service

1/ Do you want to know tips & tricks for incorporating technology into teaching?

Here are the take home points from my presentation today at #iMed2022. Image
2/ First, remember that technology can *augment* teaching but can't replace good instructional design.

Just like a good stethoscope is helpful to hear a murmur but can't replace the skills and knowledge necessary to diagnose valvular dysfunction. Image
3/ So before you think about what technology to use, first think about:

*⃣ WHAT learners should able to do afterwards (i.e., learning objectives)
*⃣ HOW you should teach it to achieve your goals (i.e., teaching methods)

Then, and ONLY then, should you select a tech tool. Image
