Training Future Physician-Educators

The Education Academy for Clinical Housestaff (TEACH) Pathway fosters the careers of future physician-educators, or those who otherwise wish to include medical education as an integral part of their professional lives. 

The TEACH Pathway provides the rigorous skill development you need for successful teaching and scholarship in medical education.

These skills are transferable across the continuum of medical education and benefit anyone who wishes to work with medical students, postgraduate trainees, and/or practicing physicians.

Program Development

TEACH residents have created enduring educational programming for medical students and residents.

Examples include our POCUS curriculum and Health Equity Pathway.

Dr. Sara Johnson teaches residents at the UW Health Simulation Program


All residents are welcome to join the TEACH Pathway at the end of their intern year.

Our community of curious educators meets quarterly for journal clubs and during Z blocks. Educational sessions focus on:

  • Theories in adult education
  • Education research methods
  • Inclusive teaching practices

You'll also complete a capstone project to springboard your academic career. TEACH capstone projects often result in national presentations and provide a foundation for a publication in a top-tier medical education journal!
