Clinician Educator Program: Generations in Medical Education: Navigating the Clash of Clan

Thursday, October 22, 2015
1830-2100 (Fairmont Waterfront Hotel)
Fee: $110 (dinner included)

In 2015 we have four generations working and learning alongside in medicine: Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Millennials. Their differences in work-life balance, communication styles, tech-savvy and other characteristics are the subject of much hand wringing. Whether real or imagined, these differences have important implications for the planning and delivery of medical education. With the help of an international panel of discussants, the 2015 Clinician Educators Dinner Program will explore these questions in a highly interactive format.

The Clinician Educator Program is designed for clinician educators (see description below). The purpose of this program is to engage clinician educators in a scholarly discussion about how intergenerational differences should inform medical education. Upon completion of this program, you will engage clinician educators in a discussion of the relevance of intergenerational differences in medical education; identify barriers created by intergenerational differences and strategies to overcome them; and discuss how technology savvy interfaces with intergenerational concerns.

A clinician educator:

  • Is a current or former clinician with experience in the delivery of healthcare as well as the supervision and teaching of health professionals
  • Applies education, psychology, and leadership theory to educational practice;
  • Engages in education scholarship; and
  • Provides consultation and advice regarding educational issues in the health professions.
