Fellows as Clinician Educators

We offer interested fellows the opportunity to obtain their Masters of Education in the Health Professions or related certificates during their fellowship training. Fellows would identify a clinician educator mentor within the first month of their fellowship. The Masters of Education program is 2 years long or a certificate can be earned in 12 months.

In addition to formal education, the clinician educator focus also offers qualified candidates to pursue hands on experience and teaching skills development. Our curriculum includes:

  • One-on-one teaching with residents and medical students during daily clinical activities
  • Preparation and presentation of lectures for didactic and research conferences
  • Assisting in teaching the nephrology curriculum to first year medical students in our University of Utah School of Medicine
  • Authorship of medical literature reviews and book chapters
  • A curriculum development project and/or education scholarship project
  • Attend seminar series on educational theory and curriculum development
  • Attend relevant medical education workshops
