Inspired Teaching

 Show Your Work Well: Building a Clinician Educator Portfolio

📅 Monday, September 26th, 2022, from 9am-12pm EDT (optional portion from 1-2pm EDT)

💻 Delivered In-Person (DBHSC) & Virtually

Registration is now closed.

Get coaching from the Inspired Teaching Team and the Clinician Educator Program Faculty members Drs. Teresa Chan and Catherine Tong, and build your own Clinician Educator portfolios! You will leave this workshop with a portfolio ready to submit for promotions, awards, and the CE Diploma Practice Eligible program.

In many institutions, being valued and promoted as a Clinician Educator can be more difficult compared to other routes. Articulating your contributions so that others can understand how you help advance your institution’s mission, vision, strategy, and values can be challenging. This interactive workshop will guide practicing clinician educators through a personal audit of their work, with the goal of assessing how their experiences align with the requirements for the practice eligible Clinician Educator diploma. The workshop will be delivered by certified Clinician Educator Diplomates, and will provide the guidance and advice needed to compile the majority of the practice eligible application for qualified applicants. Further, it will support facilitated reflection on gaps in your educational practice that will need to be filled prior to applying for the credential.

Participants can claim up to 2.75 Mainpro+ credits or 2.75  MOC Section 1  hours.
