UR Warner School of Education

Residency Education Track

We encourage resident participation in an education track that culminates in a department granted certificate or a Master’s degree granted by UR Warner School of Education. Either pathway prepares the resident for the academic role of clinician/educator, making you a highly desired candidate to help lead an educational program at any major academic medical center. Both the certificate and Master’s degree can be completed by the time the resident graduates and provide multiple teaching experiences, formal courses in teaching and learning, feedback on teaching skills development and mentorship in education research. Time out of the clinical environment necessary for these learning experiences is granted to the learner with established clinical proficiency.
