Building an Educator Portfolio to Plan and Advance Your Career

The number of clinical educators in academic medicine has grown in recent years, yet no consistent set of standards has evolved to assess the quality, scholarly approach and impact of their contributions.  The educator portfolio (EP) documents educational activities in an organized format to showcase faculty achievements and scholarship.

The workshop leaders are experienced faculty who designed the EP template that has been included recently as an optional component of the application for faculty promotion at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. They have developed EPs for their own career development and promotion, and critiqued the EPs of many other educators.

In this workshop, after a brief didactic presentation covering the first two learning objectives, participants will work individually and in small groups to begin development of their own EP, using established scholarly frameworks (Glassick’s criteria and GNOME).  In small and large group discussions, participants will analyze several sample EPs, and critique elements of their own EPs to apply what they have learned.

Learning Objectives
By the end of the workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe how the educator portfolio differs from the curriculum vitae in its content and use.
  • Describe the qualitative and quantitative components needed to fully document one’s educational efforts and their impact.
  • Begin to develop an educator portfolio using the URSMD template.
  • Analyze key sections of sample educator portfolios and discuss the “value” of this information in the evaluation of educators at academic institutions.
