Resident as Teacher (RaT)

The ability to effectively teach is important for physicians to practice and master. Physicians are not only responsible for educating their peers, the next generation of health care providers, and community members, but are responsible first and foremost for teaching their patients. Every clinical encounter is an educational encounter.

We are committed to supporting Resident-as-Teacher (RaT) curricula through the Graduate Medical Education Committee in the following ways:

  • High-quality resources to support your program's RaT efforts. On this page, you will find relevant articles, videos, and podcast episodes to integrate into your curriculum.
  • Consultations regarding development and assessment of RaT curricula. 
  • Centralized opportunities for trainees interested in education. We will be offering RaT workshops throughout the year for interested trainees.​
