ECFMG President Emeritus and FAIMER Senior Scholar James A. Hallock, M.D., recently contributed the Foreword to A Practical Guide for Medical Teachers, now in its third edition. Since its initial publication in 2001, the book has strived to “provide a bridge between the theoretical aspects of medical education and the practical delivery of enthusiastic teaching.” Dr. Hallock has described the work as “an outstanding contribution to the medical education literature which should have significant global appeal.” Also contributing to the present volume are FAIMER President and CEO John Norcini, Ph.D., FAIMER Research Scientist Danette W. McKinley, Ph.D., and FAIMER Faculty member, Stewart P. Mennin, Ph.D. Drs. Norcini and McKinley coauthored the chapter on “Standard Setting.” Dr. Mennin contributed the chapter on “Academic Standards and Scholarship.” Edited by John A. Dent and Ronald M. Harden, A Practical Guide for Medical Teachers was published in June 2009 by Elsevier. For more information, click here.
