The CET is available to a select number of residents who wish to develop critical skills necessary for a career path as a clinical teacher in academic medicine. Applications go out in the late summer and are open to all Categorical, GIM, and Med-Peds residents. Track participants are assigned a mentor, create a teaching portfolio, develop a scholarly project in medical education, participate in observed teaching sessions in a variety of venues, have the opportunity to teach learners at the medical school, and attend educational seminars. These seminars and other resources are open to all residents!
