This program aims to support residents who seek to establish a career in academic medicine or need mentoring or other support for engaging in education research or QI projects.
Who can apply?
Residents should apply as they enter their second or subsequent year of residency.
Resident Scholars will participate in one-on-one mentoring activities to enhance teaching and assessment knowledge and practices and work with a mentor on an education research project.
Mentored Teaching Practice
The FID Director can also serve as a teaching mentor. This means the Director will shadow the resident as they teach, and offer one-on-one feedback to help the resident scholar identify areas for improvement.
Commitment to Change Project
The FID Director will serve as an Education Research mentor to guide the resident in designing, implementing and preparing presentation of the Commitment to Change project.
Open Application Process
Residents may submit an application at any time since most or all activities will be one-on-one with the mentor and resident.
Submission Period: Open
Residency Program Directors
Participation in the RAE Scholars Program can provide support for residents who are preparing QI projects addressing education issues. Given the substantial time commitment, an applicant's Residency Program Director should submit a letter in support of the application.
