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.
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.
