The Department of Psychiatry is sponsoring our inaugural
Education Forum on September 17, 2014. We have planned what I hope will be an informative day that will showcase best practices in medical education and faculty development.
We are fortunate to have an excellent faculty comprised of external and internal educators. Our keynote address will be given by Carol Bernstein M.D. who is the Vice Head for Education in Psychiatry, Professor of Psychiatry and past President
of the American Psychiatric Association. She will speak on “ The Future of Psychiatric Education and Confronting the Challenges through Preparation”.
Our second speaker will be Howard Liu M.D. who is the Director of Faculty Development and Education at the University of Nebraska/Creighton Medical School, Assistant Professor in Psychiatry and renown Child Psychiatrist. He will present
on the importance of having a healthy faculty development and mentoring program to support education. He and our own Dr. Geri Fox will then team to lead a workshop on giving appropriate and impactful feedback to trainees. There will be 4 additional such workshops
running concurrently. More information will be forthcoming in the coming weeks. We ask that you reserve the afternoon as we plan what we think will be an enriching educational experience.
