Consult Program

Consult ProgramThis innovative program provides a centralized resource for faculty to request development assistance in five distinct areas: presentations, grant preparation, early career assistance, teaching advisement and manuscript preparation.

Oral & Poster Presentations

Offers the opportunity for one-on-one feedback from experienced senior faculty on oral and poster presentations. We suggest one month’s lead time to allow for scheduling with your consultant. Consultations offered for:

  • Short presentations (10-15 min)
  • Long presentations (45-60 min)
  • Poster presentations

Advice will be provided on presentation style, slide or poster format, and structure. Scientific/clinical content will not be the focus of these sessions.

Other resources including templates, logos and info on where to print your poster.

Offers an opportunity to observe teaching/education experts or to be observed in a teaching session with follow-up feedback.

Consultant Observation

Consultants who have been identified as experts in a particular teaching/education area observe the advisee in teaching sessions and give feedback afterward. The advisee may request feedback on the teaching session as a whole or may ask the consultant to focus on specific aspects of their teaching.

Advisee Observation

An advisee may request to observe a consultant in a teaching session. This observation is followed by a feedback session.

Subjects offered:

  • Bedside teaching
  • Outpatient clinical teaching
  • Small and large-group teaching
  • Curriculum development critique
  • Other education/teaching-related areas
