Faculty Development

The Department of Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education (BIME) highlights development of faculty teaching and evaluation skills and focuses in particular on implementing teaching/learning best practices and maintaining work-life balance. The department organizes multiple faculty development workshops annually, many in collaboration with the Center for Leadership and Innovation in Medical Education (CLIME) and the Office of Faculty Development. These workshops are open to all medical school faculty members with appointments at the University of Washington. Workshop presenters include UW faculty both within and outside BIME as well as nationally recognized education leaders from other institutions. Sessions are half-day and are typically interactive and experiential with hands-on activities. Workshops focus on basic teaching, learning, and evaluation skills, as well as special topics.

“Optimizing the Educational Environment: GLEAM WORKSHOP” 
Date: December 20th, 2016 Time: 8:30-11:30 am, Location: South Campus Center, Room 316
(Remote Access available to WWAMI participants on a first come first serve basis). 

Sponsor: Department of Biomedical Informatics & Medical Education.

Goal: This workshop is designed to provide participants with a practical tool to enhance orientation to clinical learning environments.

Description:  Many students do not disclose personal issues (illness, family roles and responsibilities, biases) that may impact their performance on clinical rotations, and most faculty do not proactively ask about these.  There are challenges in choosing to disclose personal matters in environments where students are being evaluated.  We have developed a tool using the mnemonic “GLEAM” that uses concepts analogous to “patient-centered” communication to facilitate the preceptor’s ability to dialogue with students on these topics, and for preceptors to reflect on their own perceptions and biases.

Presenters: Kim O’Connor, MD Associate Professor of Medicine and UWSOM College Faculty Mentor, Genevieve Pagalilauan, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine and UWSOM College Faculty Mentor.

Along with numerous other faculty small group facilitators
