What is it?
In this section, you have the opportunity to explain your roles in managing or implementing educational activities with others.
How do I start?
Thanks to Dr. John Matthews for these excerpts from his dossier:
- membership on curriculum or educational policy or planning committees
- membership on committees for evaluation or improvement of teaching
- delivery of formal faculty programs such as serving as a peer consultant
- work as a department head, course chair, or other educational leadership position
2. Director, Queen's University Training Program in Adult Hematology (Feb 1997-Sep 2003): I chaired the residency program committee which is responsible for all aspects of the program, including the selection of residents, the program content, creating the goals and objectives, and the evaluations. I organised the timetable, and the basic science course, and I ensured the smooth running of the program. I took the program through one mandatory internal review, and in 1999 successfully prepared the program for external review by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons.
3. Chair, Task Force on the ethical conduct of clinical teaching, Queen’s University Faculty of Health Sciences, (2001): I undertook a survey of ethical transgressions which
were then suspected of occurring during clinical teaching encounters. I reported to the faculty on this issue, and developed a code of conduct. Since then I have conducted an annual survey.
8. Kingston General Hospital Bioethics Committee Member (1994-2003): This committee is responsible for promoting bioethics education, providing ethics input into hospital policies, and is the parent group for bioethics consultations. I have participated in setting the ethical framework for the hospital policies on Futility as it relates to resuscitation, and Withholding or Withdrawing Nutrition and Hydration. I also have substituted for Dr Sandra Taylor in performing ethics consultations as a member of a small team set up to cover her absences. I have coordinated one session in the Ethics for Lunch series, which is given to interested hospital staff as an educational session.
