Miguel Chavez Concha, MD, was recommended to join the Teaching Scholars Program by excellent clinical educators, including his old program directors. He had always been interested in education and ways to innovate and improve teaching.

The Teaching Scholars Program is a 12-month certificate program designed to enhance knowledge and skills, and develop future leaders in healthcare education with a focus on core components of educational scholarship and curriculum development. The program consists of twice-monthly seminars held on the Washington University Medical Campus during the academic year, a curriculum development and/or education scholarship project completed under faculty mentorship/guidance, and a capstone presentation event. Topics covered include curriculum and instructional design, educational program evaluation, educational research/scholarship of teaching & learning, and leadership/change management in education. There is no cost for the program. A submission letter is required from the Department Chair, Division Head, or Program Director that states that the clinician is able to attend twice monthly sessions (roughly 4 hours each session), complete the project, and attend the Kick-Off and Project Presentation Events. Any faculty are eligible to apply.
