Clinical Educator Pathway

Fellows pursuing the clinician-educator pathway can identify expert mentorship in hospital and ambulatory medicine and quality improvement education. Faculty members will work with fellows to identify and support their interests, and tailor a balanced plan of clinical teaching, coursework, curriculum development, large and small group teaching, and guided self-study. Precepting at both University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics and the Iowa City Veterans Affairs Medical Center, fellows will enjoy the opportunity to teach residents and medical students in acute care and continuity clinics, on the surgical co-management service, on the Medical-Psychiatry service and in both attending-directed and traditional team-based settings, as best suits their career focus. Fellows will participate in the Fellows as Clinician Educators (FACE) program, and can pursue additional coursework through the Master’s in Medical Education offerings, as well as through formal and informal faculty development sessions.
