Some of us (mostly me) are getting a little excited about the upcoming launch of the ANZCEN Clinician Educator Incubator programme. If this sounds like your thing, you need to get your EOI in by February 15th 2020…. That’s less than 2 weeks away!
The ANZCEN Clinician Educator Incubator is a professional development programme for clinicians engaged in health professions education, with a focus on the critical care specialties. This one year programme enrols participants into a mentored digital community of practice. The programme is inspired by the hugely successful ALiEM Faculty Incubator project and, while borrowing heavily from the proven ALiEM formula, adapts it to the Australia and New Zealand setting.
If you are a clinician who wants to develop as a scholarly educator, apply best practices and innovations to health professions education, and help lead critical care education in the 21st century, we invite you to work with us and join our community.
Participants will be chosen for their demonstrated commitment to health professions education and their potential to develop as Clinician Educators. Through collaboration and mentorship they will develop their expertise and engage in education projects that will benefit our community of educators, our learners, and ultimately help improve patient care.
More details about the programme and how to apply are available at the ANZCEN Clinician Incubator webpage. Also, participants who are an active member of any of the ANZCEN partner organisations (ACCCN, ANZICS, CICM, or ANZAHPE) will receive a AUD $100.00 discount on the registration fees.
We are indebted to the creators and faculty of the ALiEM Faculty Incubator project for their inspiration, support, and generosity in sharing resources in the development of the ANZCEN Clinician Educator Incubator.
