Residents as Teachers

At UBC, we recognize that there’s a growing need to support residents in becoming effective teachers. The Office of Faculty Development and the Postgraduate Medical Education Office assists programs in teaching their residents how to teach. We work with Program Directors to provide RaT curriculum and facilitation materials. Programs are encouraged to adapt the curriculum materials to fit their context. We also help programs directors to identify facilitators and train them to conduct RaT sessions.

Benefits

Integrating RaT into your residency program will:

  • Ensure that residents are ready to teach students and patients effectively.
  • Fulfill the CanMEDS scholar role of the competency framework required for accreditation.

Implementation

The RaT curriculum can be easily adapted and incorporated into individual residency training programs. We support each residency program through the process of establishing its RaT program. We will also help to organize and evaluate the learning sessions.

Evaluation

RaT requires monitoring for quality improvement and effectiveness. We ask that all residency programs share their RaT evaluation data with the Office of Faculty Development.
