Teaching Faculty

Join the program

Our program depends on the contributions of our esteemed faculty and preceptors. There are many opportunities for physicians, academics, and other public health professionals to participate in the program.

Teaching

You’ll present at resident Academic Half Days and in additional workshops/courses, such as the PHPM National Review Course.

Public health rotation supervision

You’ll supervise both core and subspecialty rotations. Rotation supervisors formally assess residents, lead learning activities related to milestones or competencies, and guide resident and related reflections and further learning.

Exam preparation

Public health physicians facilitate mock oral exams and written exam review sessions, which are scheduled multiple times per year, often as part of the formal Academic Half Day curriculum.

The Competence Committee

Join the committee. Meeting every other month during the academic year to discuss resident progress and promotion, it includes the program director, faculty advisors, clinical supervisors, academic faculty, and other members of the interdisciplinary public health team. The committee monitors the progression of each resident semi-annually, identifies successes and gaps, and makes recommendations for future learning specific to that resident. It also makes decisions regarding promotion of a resident to the next postgraduate year.

The Residency Program Committee

Join the committee. Meeting every other month during the academic year to discuss program operations and policies, it includes the program director, rotation site leads, the chief resident, and an elected resident representative. The committee is responsible for the high-level objectives and direction of the PHPM Residency Program, and supports the design, planning, implementation, and evaluation of educational activities that contribute to a resident’s learning experience over the course of the program.

Assessing residents

Formative and summative formal assessments are a core component of the PHPM Residency Program, and are carried out by teaching faculty supporting residents in academic and training settings. These include mid-rotation and end-of-rotation evaluations, sent through the One45 platform.

Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) maintains several policies related to assessment, evaluation, remediation, probation and appeals, including:

  • PGME Resident Assessment Policy
  • Resident Evaluation of Faculty
  • Resident Evaluations of Educational Experiences
  • Resident Appeal Policy
