This workshop is open to faculty and staff.

The Medical School STRIDE Committee provides information and advice about practices that will maximize the likelihood that diverse, well-qualified candidates for faculty, fellowship and residency positions will be identified, and, if selected for offers, recruited to the University of Michigan. The committee leads workshops for faculty and administrators involved in selection, recruitment and hiring. Much of the information is also relevant to retention and promotion of these individuals as well. 

Inclusive Principles for the Clinical Teaching Context

Making the Most of Hot Moments in Clinical Teaching

11 am, January 13, 2020

This is at times connected to a heightened awareness of the social differences in a room or perhaps a result of patient behavior or at times due to the sensitive concerns unfolding with a patient. What are your choices in such a moment? And how can you take advantage of such moments as opportunities to advance trainee learning?
