What Does Physiology Teach Us About Assessment and Evaluation?

The educational process in medicine leads to eventual independence, a time when the faculty need no longer be physically present. It’s hard work for students and also for faculty, and maybe we need simple principles to get students and teachers on the same page. Physiologic systems, for instance, support homeostasis, an internal process of trying to maximize or protect something important and avoid threats, in which self-monitoring or self-regulation is essential.  In their progress toward progressive independence, what in our students are we trying to maximize (some notion of competence) and what are we trying to avoid (unsafe or unprofessional behaviors). How do we foster this and what are simple ways to describe the process of internalizing a promise of expertise and duty? And, what are effective and efficient ways of observing it?


Join us for the Poster, Recognition, and Awards Reception on October 27, from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm (with poster viewing to begin at 4:00 pm) to view TEACH Education Day posters, listen to the selected podium presentations, and hear the announcement of the 2022 annual TEACH Award winners!
