Abstract

The educational scholarship track represented 1 of 3 tracks of the Ambulatory Pediatric Association/Health Resources and Services Administration faculty development initiative. Two cohorts of participants (N = 38), selected via a peer-review process, took part in series of three 2-day workshops presented over an 18-month period designed to assist experienced pediatric faculty in becoming more proficient educators. The program was developed through an iterative needs assessment process and consisted of 7 major areas of study and skill development: principles of adult learning; teaching skills; feedback and evaluation; the workshop as a teaching and faculty development tool; curriculum development, implementation, and evaluation; research in medical education; and scholarship and promotion. At program completion, 35 scholars rated themselves on their pre- and postprogram competencies, demonstrating improvement in most areas. Scholars were required to lead educational workshops and reported having led a total of 118 local and 64 regional or national workshops as a part of their program participation. There are objective indications that scholars in this track were successful in furthering their careers in medical education.
