Weatherly returns from month-long education course at Stanford

Dr. Lyssa Weatherly recently returned from Stanford where she attended the Stanford Lyssa teachingFaculty Development Program for training as a Clinical Teaching Facilitator. The program was four weeks in duration and located in Palo Alto, California on Stanford’s main campus. Weatherly was one of six educators chosen from a very competitive application process worldwide. She was selected along with faculty from Georgia, Toronto, Australia, Connecticut and Michigan.  The course provides participants with background knowledge and seminar leadership skills to deliver a series of seven 2-hour seminars to their colleagues and to residents. The core curriculum of the course included topics such as learning climate, evaluation and feedback, and promotion of self-directed learning.  At the completion, Lyssa was granted certification as a Stanford Clinical Teaching Facilitator, which means she is now trained to lead courses for the development of clinical teaching skills both for faculty development and residents as teachers. The course was developed by Drs. Kelley Skeff and Georgette Stratos in 1986 and now has 215 alumni of the program. Dr. Weatherly is the first faculty member from UMMC to participate in Stanford’s Clinical Teaching Facilitator Program.
