The Academy of Resident Educators (ARE) is a resident-driven initiative within the Ob/Gyn department that supports education beyond the core residency curriculum. ARE fosters the growth of residents as clinician educators by encouraging involvement in medical student education, educational leadership, and professional development.
We facilitate opportunities for residents through guest lectures, teaching resources, and teaching skills labs. We also host education journal clubs, actively participate in clerkship didactics/sim sessions, and support the medical student interest group (GOBIG). Our efforts have resulted in local and national presentations and found their way into publication. Residents who complete hours in direct teaching, educational activities, and other professional development are eligible for certification as a Distinguished Resident Educator at graduation.
