2013 Program for Educators in Health Professions
Application Deadline: September 21, 2012
Current Dates: 1/13/2013 - 1/23/2013 & 5/5/2013 - 5/10/2013

Program Objectives
The goal of this Harvard Macy Program is to enhance the professional development of physicians, basic scientists and other healthcare professionals as educators. The program will combine five major themes: Learning and teaching, curriculum, evaluation, leadership, and information technology. The program provides a select group of 60 healthcare professionals with the knowledge base and skills to enhance their expertise in both conducting an educational project of their own design and taking a leadership role in the educational activities at their home institutions.

Program Description
The program consists of two sessions in residence at Harvard: an 11-day winter session and a 6-day spring session. Learning formats include large-group presentations, interactive exercises, problem-based learning, observations, reflective use of journals, and discussion in large and small groups. A variety of faculty-facilitated small-group formats are used to support learning from observation, to draw together scholars with common interests, and to further the development of each scholar's back-home project for educational change.
