Program Applications

Faculty Development Fellowship Program

June 28 - July 10, 2017
From the Office of Medical Education
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to apply for an innovative new faculty development "fellowship" program in professional identity formation and coaching. The Cura Personalis Fellowship is a program created to serve and nurture the Jesuit ideal at the root of our institution - care of the whole person.

The concept of professional identity formation is of course not a new one. As a developmental process that is constantly taking place, we have made this an intentional thread within our medical education curriculum. With built in space to reflect upon their journeys in medicine, our students will engage how their longitudinal learning experiences affect their growing professional identities. Cura Fellows will play an integral role to this new curricular infusion.

Through our 1-year fellowship program, clinicians will build a strong foundation in current theory and practice of professional identity formation and coaching, specifically related to competencies in leadership, wellbeing/mindfulness, lifelong learning, inter-professional practice, and resiliency. Serving as a Professional Identity Coach, Cura Fellows will have the unique opportunity to engage medical students' professional identity formation through periodic small-group sessions, one-on-one meetings, and a developmental e-portfolio woven into our new Journeys curriculum. 

Upon successful completion of the program, Cura Fellows will receive a certificate of completion, a honorarium, and will be invited to continue on serving as a Professional Identity Coach.

More detailed information can be found in this 1 page overview, and via the program webpage.

A brief application is due by 11:59pm on Monday, July 10th.

We hope you will consider joining us on this exciting journey,

Stephen Ray Mitchell, MD, MBA
Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics 
Joseph J. Butenas Professor and Dean for Medical Education

Workshop with Dr. Carrie Chen, "Planning and Reviewing Test Items: How to Use Test Blueprints and Item Analysis to Create Better Exams"

Successful development of exams depend both on effective planning before and careful review after the exam.  The use of blueprints in planning, to design an exam and develop test items, helps ensure exam content is representative of course content and expectations.  Post hoc analysis of the exam and test items allow evaluation of the exam’s performance and identification of problematic items.  This workshop will introduce the concept of test blueprinting and item analysis in the development of multiple choice exams.  Participants will be able to practice creating and using a test blueprint and interpreting item statistics for questions on a multiple choice exam.
