Partners HealthCare International (PHI), in collaboration with the Harvard Macy Institute, Boston Children’s Hospital and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, recently hosted its first ever intensive three-day professional development program for postgraduate fellows and residents seeking to enhance their skills and scholarship as future academic clinician-educators. Held at a teaching space generously offered through the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute for Health Professions (IHP), the competitive program accepted only half of all 95 applicants from across the country and Canada. Of 47 accepted applicants, 13 were Partners-associated residents and fellows.
