Medical Education at Childrens National
Professional Development Opportunities
In 2010, Children’s National established a professional group for educators from multiple disciplines that recognizes excellence in educational scholarship and leadership, promotes education research, supports innovation in teaching and serves as a community of practice for health professions educators committed to providing optimal patient care.
The Center for Faculty Excellence at George Washington University focuses on teaching and learning, leadership, education research and career development for faculty members. Learn more about the center on its website
For nearly 20 years, Children’s National has partnered with George Washington University’s Graduate School of Education and Human Development (GSEHD) to sponsor a year-long program to foster teaching excellence. Each “cohort” consists of a multi-disciplinary group of 10-15 individuals drawn from across Children’s National and GWU. The program consists of five courses taken over a 10-month period:
- Adult Learning
- Curriculum Design for Adult Learners
- Assessment of Adult Learning
- Work Groups and Teams in Organizations
- Leadership in Organizations
Graduates receive a Graduate Certificate in Leadership Development from GSEHD. All completed coursework may be applied toward a Master of Arts in Education and Human Development. Graduates of the Program, based at Children’s National, typically join CAPE.
Leadership at Children’s National and the Children’s National Research Institute supports our junior faculty members as they develop into future leaders and mentors.
- Developing leaders is a core part of the strategic plan of GW which maintains resources for Faculty Development.
- The Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Children’s National maintains an inventory of Mentoring Resources for faculty members.
- The Clinical Research Directors are a group of senior faculty members at Children’s National with a strong interest in fostering academic accomplishments among faculty members, specifically the number and quality of grant submissions. Please contact Naomi Luban, M.D., for more information.
- Approximately 20 senior faculty members across multiple disciplines have endowed chairs. This group of leaders is an excellent resource for junior faculty members to consult about their own professional development.
- Faculty Awards: Every year, Children’s National recognizes leaders in mentoring and teaching with awards. Nominated by their peers, these individuals are excellent resources to consult.
