Inquiry Immersion Mini-Course Leader
The central goal of Inquiry Immersion mini-courses is to help students in the healthcare professions shift from the concept of medicine as a series of facts to be learned from textbooks or didactics, to a vision of medical practice as engagement with an ever-evolving and imperfect body of knowledge.
Develop and teach a two-week mini-course in January 2017 for 8-12 students centered on a current challenge or controversy in healthcare. Mini-courses require 12 hours of afternoon class (after 1pm) time spread over 2-4 days/week (length and location of class at faculty discretion)
Each course should have a capstone component that may take the form of a presentation, debate, group project, or proposal.
- Opportunity to design and lead a new course on a healthcare topic that you are passionate about
- Get to know a group of medical students, develop new collaborations and recruit students to your project in the future
- Receive credit towards promotions/advancements for being a course director
- Develop new collaborations and recruit students to work on your research project in the future
- Learn new teaching skills
