Education Scholarship Conference (ESCape)

Covid-19 Update on Center for Faculty Educators (CFE) Events

Given the UCSF, city-wide, and state-wide restrictions on gatherings, the CFE will address scheduled faculty development offerings with a mix of cancellations and online versions of workshops. We will inform registrants about the status of each offering scheduled through the end of May. We will attempt to reschedule canceled workshops as soon as it is safe to have face-to-face gatherings.


Thank you for your patience, and stay well.

What is the Education Scholarship Conference (ESCape)?

ESCape is a weekly lunchtime “brown bag” group scholarship consultation session that provides the opportunity to consult with education researchers and other colleagues in a friendly group setting. Generally, 5-10 education research faculty attend.

Who can participate?
Anyone with an interest in medical education research can participate in ESCape sessions.

When and where do I join?
ESCape sessions are every Tuesday from noon to - 1 pm. There are several ways to participate:


  • Parnassus: University Hall Suite U80 (G Level)
  • Mission Bay: Mission Hall, Room 4800

Remote Access (via Zoom):

We recommend that ESCape presenters prepare a brief (5-10 minute) elevator pitch of their project and propose several specific questions for the ESCape group. The remainder of the session will be spent discussing the questions proposed.

To get the most from your ESCape consultation please send your manuscript, summary of data, questions for consideration, to CFE by the Friday before your session.
