Know Your Acronyms (KYA): FAME

At NEOMED, we love acronyms! Here’s the tenth in our series to help you decode them.

Have you heard about FAME? No, not the fame associated with movie stars and Hollywood. Fellowship in Academic Medicine (FAME) is a longitudinal professional development program for health professions educators and administrative leaders. The 10-month program has been in existence for 27 years and now has more than 270 alumni.

FAME has two tracks: the teaching and learning track, for health professions educators; and the leadership track, for health professional leaders.  

Participants in the teaching and learning track cover topics including curriculum design and evaluation; student learning and assessment; and clinical teaching skills. The leadership track focuses on emotional intelligence, conflict management, negotiation, motivational techniques, getting buy-in and personal leadership. 

Class are held monthly, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., from February to December. Sessions include skills- building workshops, one-on-one coaching, journal club and project time.

Information about how to apply for the 2018-19 sessions will be available from in coming months. Watch The Pulse for details.
