RAE Course on Feedback: Theory & Practice

UA CoM Policy Requires Ongoing RAE Training

UA College of Medicine (UA CoM) faculty instructional development (FID) policy requires all residents who teach medical students to participate in instructional development activities. Residents as Educators (RAE) activities begin with an orientation for new interns immediately before starting residency and continue for each subsequent year of residency. All residents as educators program activities and resources are also available to fellows who teach medical students. More on RAE policy

RAE Feedback Training On Demand!

Dr. Spear Ellinwood has developed and launched a self-directed learning course on feedback. Completion of the course will satisfy the UA CoM policy requiring ongoing residents as educators training. Residents and residency programs can utilize the course as follows:

  • Self-regulated Learning - Residents who teach medical students can access the course as an iBook or interactive PDF and complete the course in their own time.
  • Flipped Classroom Materials - Residency program directors can assign residents to review course sections that teach and review key concepts, and provide opportunities in a facilitated session to apply the concepts through course feedback scenarios or role-play.
