Training the Trainers: Faculty Development at MGIMS

“No bubble is so iridescent or floats longer than that blown by a successful teacher” -Sir William Osler

Teaching, patient care and research are the cornerstones of the medical profession. Quite too often, the roles of the clinician and the researcher overshadow that of a teacher. However if the system is to produce competent doctors, the foremost priority would be to provide good teachers. So then, what makes a good clinical teacher? Does being a good clinician automatically mean that one is a good teacher? Unfortunately, no! Current wisdom demands that medical teachers must be honed in the craft of pedagogy along with their training in the science of medicine.

The Medical Education Unit (MEU) of MGIMS was started in 1994 to polish the skills of medical faculty at MGIMS in the art of teaching. The focus is not only on teaching, but also on developing the complex roles of being mentors, assessors, curriculum designers, facilitators and role models. In order to support clinicians in their teaching skills, a dedicated and enthusiastic group of faculty members at the MEU has been conducting faculty development activities since the last four decades.

The Medical Education Unit consists of over 20 faculty most of whom have completed advanced courses in health professions education such as Masters in Health Professions Education, Fellowships from the Foundation of Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER) and Advanced Course in Medical Education. The team organized a highly successful National Conference on Health Professions Education in 2014. The Unit conducts Basic Workshops in Medical Education Technology twice a year, while workshops in specialized areas are conducted round the year. The basic course workshops are recognized by the Medical Council of India and conducted in the presence of observers from NMC’s Nodal Centre. These workshops use a unique blend of innovative learning strategies and games in a lively environment, where the seniors share their experiences with the newbies. The MEU has organized workshops on Curriculum Innovation Support Programme in the wake of the introduction of a competency-based curriculum. An advanced workshop on MCQ construction was also conducted for the faculty. The evaluation conducted at the end of these workshops show that the immediate response to these workshops has been very positive. Faculty are encouraged to unleash their creativity in their teaching and assessment. and be more interactive in their manner.
