Enrolment is limited to those applicants who have been accepted into an existing Fellowship (with a substantial time commitment to simulation) for the upcoming academic year. FEAST sessions (with limited exceptions) will be held on Wednesdays between 8:30am - 12:00pm and the course will run from July 2018 to June 2019.
DIME/uOSSC Healthcare Education Scholars Program (HESP)
Application deadline: April annually
The overall goal of the DIME/uOSSC Healthcare Education Scholars Program is to enhance the knowledge of educators and foster a sense of academic scholarship in health care education. The program provides a theoretical scaffolding to activities our clinician educators take part in on a daily basis and promotes a deeper understanding of how these activities relate to our goal of producing more effective health care providers. We aim to inspire innovation and scholarship among the participants as well as to develop a local community of scholars who can support each other and ultimately provide leadership for the next generation of clinician educators.
We would greatly appreciate if you could share with your colleagues, professors, and students who may be interested.
