Academic & Career Development


The Educator's Portfolio & CV Compendium
1st EDITION ©2002
Authors: D Simpson

Traditionally, our Educator's Portfolio sample book has contained only example entries from each of our 10 portfolio sections. Over time however, our portfolios and CV have become interdependent documents with the CVs highlighting the "what" an educator does and the portfolio presenting the "evidence" of excellence as an educator. To demonstrate this relationship, our newest publication presents copies of faculty members' CVs and accompanying portfolios as submitted for promotion to both associate and professor ranks.


The Educator's Portfolio
Authors: D Simpson, A Beecher, J Lindemann, and J Morzinksi

Recognition of the work of educators is increasingly based on their ability to provide evidence of their impact/quality as a teacher, adviser, curriculum developer, evaluator, and/or educational administrator. The Educator's Portfolio has been nationally recognized as a model for documenting one's activities as an educator. However, the EP is an important tool for tracking your professional growth. Nearly 80 pages of examples from actual faculty portfolios, this sample book provides an array of entries. We include a list of references including our publications in: Teaching and Learning in Medicine (6(3):1994; 9(1):1997); and Family Medicine (27(5):1995). With its fourth edition, copies have been distributed throughout the continental US, Canada, Puerto Rico and Europe!



Mentoring Guidebook for Academic Physicians
Authors: D Bower, S Diehr, J Morzinski, and D Simpson

Our colleagues are a major factor in our academic success. Senior colleagues can socialize new faculty to the unwritten rules of academic medicine, assist with career planning, and help them form strong colleague networks. This practical, how-to guidebook is for mentors and protégées focused on topics, strategies, and examples of mentor-protégée interactions. It contains checklists (e.g., behaviors associated with academic success) and an annotated CV review revealing the CV as a ready source of data for the mentor to provide support, challenge and vision in dialogues with his/her protégée.
Length: 69 pgs including references


Clinical Teaching Skills

Critical Teaching Incident Casebook: Advancing the Scholarship of Teaching through Critical 
Analyses and Reflection of ACGME Competency Based Teaching Cases

1st EDITION ©2005
Editors: D Simpson, C McLaughlin 

Building upon Stephen Brookfield's teaching incident technique and the concept of teaching scripts, each case in this book contains a brief description of a teaching situation, the emotional response evoked n the teacher (e.g., anger, elation), the teaching objectives (framed to highlight the ACGME objectives of professionalism and/or systems-based practice), the teacher-learner interaction, and a critical analysis of the incident.  The cases are intended to provoke critical discussion about teaching - from targeted ACGME competencies to teaching strategies - as our goals are to improve clinician educators' ability to teach and to contribute to a scholarship of clinical teaching.



Award-Winning Clinical Teachers Teach: Literature-based ambulatory teaching methods
CD Rom - Run Time: 60 min.
Co-Producers: C Heidenreich and D Simpson

Four award-winning primary care clinical teachers demonstrate methods cited in the literature as effective and efficient clinical teaching strategies: 1-2 focal teaching point, priming, teaching in the patients' presence, and feedback. We also illustrate the use of personal digital assistants and feedback notes as part of the clinical teaching interaction. Each method is first over viewed by a narrator with key features highlighted in text. Then each method is demonstrated by at least two clinical teachers in response to a standardized student. Designed to be used as short 1-2 minute video clips or as an 8 minute continuous teaching interaction for use during clinical teaching workshops with faculty and/or community preceptors.

    • Improving Clinical Teaching Through SATS DVD

    • A Facilitator's Guide to SATS Consultation DVD A companion to the vignette, this DVD provides a demonstration of how to debrief the SATS experience. It includes annotated comments from experienced debriefers.
    • SATS Case Workbook and Samples
