Residents as Teachers

Residents as Teachers

Residents as Teachers (RATs) is a full day workshop for residents in all specialties to learn about, discuss, and practice the principles of adult education that will help them in teaching medical students, patients, other residents, and of course faculty and staff.

Offered four times during the spring, this interactive curriculum includes small group work supported by clinicians and medical educators as facilitators and standardized patients to help residents practice new instructional skills.
