Clinical Educator Fellowship Program

ADM_Website_CEFP banner

 

The Centre for Health Education Scholarship is offering opportunities for health professionals to develop experience or skills in health education scholarship through the Clinical Educator Fellowship Program (CEFP). This 2-year fellowship is designed for those interested in developing an academic career as a Clinical Educator, which we define as a) a clinician in a health profession who b) actively engages in health professions educational activities AND c) desires to engage in and disseminate health-professions-related educational scholarship AND d) desires to engage in (or currently engages in) educational administration/leadership. All applicants must be Canadian citizens, permanent residents, or WHO refugees.

We currently have funding available for MD applicants. We wish to expand our fellowship program to other health professions and will work with other health professional applicants and their home departments to secure funding for a fellowship position.

Contact the Educational Program Assistant for more information.

Fellows are expected to spend the equivalent of two years with 80% of their time dedicated towards CEF activities. An option for part time participation is available with the approval of the fellowship director.

Under the guidance of the CEF Director, these activities include:

  1. Enrolment in and completion of an advanced degree (master’s level) in education
  2. Completion of a major research project (thesis) under the guidance and supervision of faculty with whom the fellow is expected to meet regularly
  3. Engagement in related health professions teaching in a variety of settings and formats, including participation in distributed and integrated programs.
  4. Participation in weekly academic half-day activities and other CHES events.
  5. Contribution to the scholarly environment of CHES by engaging in collaborative activities and projects with fellow peers, educators, and researchers.

  • Include education and teaching experience in a variety of contexts, including the distributed sites .
  • Allow a 20% clinical commitment.
