Vice Chair for Education
Having held the position of Emergency Medicine Residency Director and now as the Emergency Medicine/Internal Medicine Residency Director and Vice Chair of Education, I have the privilege of overseeing our department's education mission. From our roots as one of the first academic departments of Emergency Medicine and one of the earliest residency training programs, our department now includes a categorical EM residency program with 16 residents per year, an EM IM residency program, and multiple fellowship training opportunities.
Our goal for residency education is simply to be one of the top programs in the country and to train the future leaders and scholars of emergency medicine. Our graduates will impact and influence our field at every level. We intend to accomplish these goals through four important areas of focus:

A Culture of Education, Innovation and Excellence

Our core faculty consists of dedicated faculty, who have devoted their entire academic careers to honing their teaching skills, engaging in medical education research, and developing educational innovations. Our faculty have been recognized at both a local and a national level for their educational expertise. Professor rounds, a resident-focused coaching program, and wellness initiatives, are a small sample of some of our innovative ingredients and our department's focus on educational excellence. Looking ever towards the future, we're currently working on developing new technology initiatives and career-focus tracks to enhance our residents' educational experiences. We embrace the John Maxwell quote that "the only thing certain about tomorrow it that it will be different than today."

Curriculum Development and Innovation

We have extrapolated from the best practices of adult learning theory and the medical education literature to blaze new trails and develop an innovative curriculum for our residency training programs. Our didactic curriculum features flipped classrooms and is small-group discussion-based. Simulation and procedure skills labs experiences are included every month. Nationally-renowned speakers, an EBM journal club, and a unique M&M format emphasizing learning through a cognitive autopsy model round out our didactic conferences. Maximizing resident education and achieving expertise and excellence through self-directed learning augmented by high-quality didactics is the goal of our curriculum.

Lead, Contribute, and Influence by Example

Attend our specialty's national meeting and you are likely to experience the impact of our faculty, our residency alumni, or our current residents. Many of our faculty members are regular presenters at national meetings such as ACEP, SAEM and CORD. In addition many of our faculty members hold or have held leadership positions in national organizations such as ACEP, ABEM, SAEM and the AMA. We encourage resident participation in these and other organizations like EMRA, as well.

Win with People

At Ohio State, we believe our people-faculty and residents-are one of our most valuable resources. Imagine a department of over 50 faculty members-many with national reputations-- committed to your educational development. Our faculty offer a wealth of varied experience and interests; whatever your future career intentions, we likely have someone who can mentor you and share the wisdom they've gained through time and practice. Our faculty will become your leaders, mentors and colleagues. In turn, we believe your development as physicians and as individuals is equally important, so we strive to create a community that promotes professional collegiality, personal friendship, and support amongst our residents. Periodic social activities foster development of relationships between faculty and residents. Our coaching program is designed to assist residents in building the professional skills and qualities that will make them successful physicians for years to come. Senior residents also take a special interest in mentoring and supporting our new interns as they begin their journeys toward becoming experts in Emergency Medicine.
Ohio State features a culture of innovation and excellence, an expertise in curricula design, a department with national reputation, and people that foster an educational work environment.
