Development as an Educator

Neonatology Fellows participating in Simulation Lab activities

Multiple opportunities for development of skills in adult education exist within our program, including:

  • Certificate program in medical education – the clinician as an educator program
  • Brown Bag Lunch series presented by educators in the University Appletree Society of the Center for Academic Excellence
  • Structured formal feedback after conference presentations

Teaching opportunities exist throughout our program, including:

  • Didactics within the division
  • Didactic presentations to the Department of Pediatrics
  • Individual small group opportunities within the College of Medicine
  • The opportunity to present at a national conference hosted by MUSC on evidence-based approaches to neonatal pharmacology
  • The state-of-the-art simulation center at MUSC offers fellows the opportunity to develop the skills to effectively use this exciting and very useful educational tool.  Fellows are currently participating as trainees and instructors in simulations of neonatal care during the first two hours of postnatal life.
