Initiatives for Educator DevelopmentThe goals of the Initiatives for Educator Development are to assist faculty in their pursuit of scholarly educational activity; to sensitize faculty to current educational issues; and to enhance the teaching skills necessary for educating physicians in the 21st century. The Initiatives for Educator Development consists of three components:
Workshops and Mini-FellowshipsWorkshops and mini-fellowships are offered in collaboration with Baylor College of Medicine, The University of Texas Dental Branch, and The University of Texas Medical School at Houston. The goal of these programs is to enhance the teaching skills of those involved in health science education. Topics have included team learning, curriculum design, teaching in the ambulatory setting, measuring educational outcomes, small group interaction, portfolio preparation, and technology in teaching. Offerings include stand-alone sessions as well as a series of sessions that extend over several weeks. This series allows faculty the flexibility to choose the sessions likely to be of most benefit.

Graduate Programs for Health Science EducatorsThe University of Houston’s College of Education offers three graduate programs which emphasize teaching and learning for health science professionals online and on the campus of the Texas Medical Center.
Resident WorkshopsThe Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) requires that residents who supervise or teach medical students must be prepared for their roles in teaching and evaluation. The Office of Educational Programs offers one-hour sessions on teaching skills and principles of feedback. Sessions can easily be scheduled within a Noon Conference or other didactic sessions. Other resident workshop topics include test-taking and knowledge acquisition strategies and effective presentation skills.
Health Educators Fellowship Program (HEFP)
Health Educators Fellowship Program (HEFP) is a collaborative
initiative between three schools of The University of Texas Health
Science Center at Houston; the School of Dentistry, the Medical School
and the School of Public Health.
