Fellows and faculty of the 2008 CMCL-FAIMER Regional Institute

On January 16, 2008, the Christian Medical College, Ludhiana (CMCL) welcomed a new class of 16 Fellows at the CMCL-FAIMER Regional Institute. Fellows learned about a variety of teaching techniques for medical education such as the one-minute preceptor (OMP) and the mini clinical examination (mini-CEX) and worked extensively with faculty advisors on their own curriculum innovation projects. After an intensive four days, they were joined by the returning class of 2007 Fellows for a two-day combined program. The two classes converged with Mentor-Learning Web assignments and celebrated their new relationships by exchanging co-mentoring bracelets. The 2008 class presented their project plans followed by the 2007 group’s poster presentations on their completed projects. When the 2008 Fellows returned to their home institutions to begin implementing their projects, the 2007 class remained for an additional two-day program to further their knowledge and skills in research, scholarship, and sustaining change.

The hard work of participants was interspersed with a varied program of social and recreational activities. Highlights included a bonfire dinner with traditional dancers in glorious costumes providing entertainment, a day trip to the Golden Temple of Amritsar, and the sunset ceremony at the Indian-Pakistani border. Fellows and faculty alike will have wonderful memories of these experiences.

Director Dr. Tejinder Singh was ably assisted in the organization and presentation of the institute by a talented team of local faculty at CMCL, including Drs. Dinesh Badyal, Jugesh Chhatwal, Harpreet Kapoor, Gagandeep Kwatra, and Sheena Singh. They were joined by a number of visiting Indian and international faculty, as well as a guest observer from Bangladesh, Dr. Anwarul Azim of the Holy Family Red Crescent Medical College in Dhaka.

CMCL Hosts First Regional Institute Faculty Development Workshop

Faculty development workshop participants at Christian Medical College, Ludhiana

In August 2007, the Directors and key faculty members of FAIMER’s five Regional Institutes came together in Philadelphia for the first time for a five-day Directors and Faculty of FAIMER Regional Institutes (DAFFRI) program that included strategic planning activities and teaching skills development sessions. One of the outcomes of this meeting was a decision and an action plan to provide further faculty development opportunities in the regions. The first realization of this goal took place in December 2007 at Christian Medical College, Ludhiana (CMCL) in India.

Director of the CMCL-FAIMER Regional Institute, Tejinder Singh, and his team initially planned a one-day workshop to provide opportunities for teaching practice and constructive feedback to session presenters from the faculties of any of the FAIMER Regional Institutes in India. However, the idea generated so much interest that the format was expanded to give other faculty who had not previously been exposed to a FAIMER program an opportunity to participate. A total of 33 faculty members from six medical schools enrolled in the workshop, 11 of whom presented teaching practice sessions on topics from the regional institute curriculum over the course of two days.

Throughout the sessions, presenters made deliberate attempts to showcase a number of adult learning principles and interactive teaching techniques. Methods employed included a variety of discussions, role-plays, and group work formats. The scope of the feedback covered not only the presentation skills of the session leader but also the syllabus, reading materials, and visual aids that accompanied the presentation.

Director Tejinder Singh commented that he was particularly impressed by the superb time management that characterized the execution of the program, as it finished exactly on time at the end of the second day. According to Tejinder, this remarkable achievement had nothing to do with the planned shopping excursion immediately following the workshop. The event was such a great success that CMCL is already planning an encore faculty development workshop for the spring of 2008.
