The TEACH certificate program was developed by SGIM’s Education Committee to address the needs of junior clinician educators. The program focuses on Teaching Skills and offers quality instruction and assessment with tangible outcomes. Participants will leave the program with an interactive Teaching Portfolio to document their teaching performance and feedback obtained as well as reflections on strengths and weaknesses. Participation in the program also provides learners with life-long access to a community of medical educators. The TEACH Certificate is affordable, accessible, and can be completed in just one year.

Who Should Apply

SGIM TEACH Certificate is ideal for junior clinician educators with teaching responsibilities, new faculty, or seasoned clinicians changing focus to include a teaching role. Both hospitalists and outpatient general internists are encouraged to apply. Attendance at the SGIM Annual Meeting is mandatory for the successful completion of the program.

SGIM continues its journey to becoming an anti-racist society that is committed to promoting and championing diversity, equity, and inclusion as a strategic priority.  All applicants will be given equal consideration by a diverse panel of reviewers.

Program Highlights

All participants will be required to attend one full day core content session in Year One and 3 hours of selective content spanning Year One and Year Two at the SGIM Annual Meeting. In addition, both independent and online study (including direct observations and an ePortfolio) is required. Access to an online community of educators is a valuable component of this program. Connection with this community is extended to all TEACH alumni. Participants attend a Welcome Reception in Year One and a Certificate Reception in Year Two. TEACH graduates are welcome to attend these receptions to reconnect with alumni and network with the new class.
