A400 Student as Teacher 

The word doctor is derived from the Latin verb docere, meaning to teach.  At many points during a physician's career, from medical school through residency and into practice, he or she will be expected to educate peers, students and faculty.  This elective seeks to provide fourth year medical student-teachers (STs) the opportunity to gain and develop pedagogical knowledge, skills and attitudes.  We will accomplish this through three approaches: a standard didactic curriculum, opportunities for practical application of theoretical learning and, finally, the expectation to work with a faculty member of their choice on a curricular enhancement project (discussed below).


It is important to point out that as recently as a few years ago Dr.Richard Hayes directed a Student-as-Teacher elective that, unfortunately, discontinued after his death.  Currently, many opportunities exist for fourth year students to teach at Einstein.  Between electives assisting in the anatomy labs to leading small group case conferences as part of the MCFM course, students who are interested in education can find opportunities to teach.  This elective seeks to consolidate these opportunities.  Additionally, this elective will create a didactic curriculum for interested students to learn about educational principles in adult education as well as learning environments specific to clinical medicine (i.e. precepting).  The didactic curriculum also utilizes currently-existing opportunities such as lessons from the ongoing Resident-as-Teacher program in the Montefiore department of Internal Medicine.  


The product is an elective that rekindles a discontinued Einstein tradition, materializes learning objectives that are stated within the Physician as Educator curricular sub-competencies, and provides the framework for the growth of medical education innovation at Einstein.
