In early June, the Master Teacher Leadership Development Program celebrated its 10th anniversary. To date, 104 students have graduated from the certificate cohort program, which is a faculty fellowship program in medical education.
Offered by GSEHD in partnership with the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences, the MTLDP enhances medical professionals' teaching skills, develops their educational leadership potential, and helps them to pursue scholarship in education.
About half the medical schools in the U.S. and Canada offer similar programs. "We are among several that have reached the ten year mark. We remain one of the few offered jointly by a medical school and school of education, and are unique in that the graduates earn a university certificate," says Dr. Ellen Goldman, Assistant Professor of Human and Organizational Learning and director of the program.
"I am proud to be working with SMHS to deliver this program. It is very rewarding to see the immediate changes the faculty enrolled in MTLDP make to undergraduate, resident, and fellowship teaching and learning, as well as the ongoing impact that the graduates have," Goldman says.
On June 7th, the program commemorated the milestone with a celebration including alumni, current students, and next year's cohort, along with faculty and staff.
This year's cohort included 13 students; they marked their completion of the program with a celebration on June 13th.
