Teaching & Presentation Skills

A competent psychiatrist effectively imparts knowledge and skills to others—including students, physicians, other medical professionals, or lay people of all backgrounds—in one-on-one, small, or large group settings.

Portfolio Entry Requirements:
Select a situation from residency training that provides evidence of your skill for teaching and presenting information. In your cover letter, describe the context of the teaching situation or presentation, such as the number of learners and characteristics of the audience, and a description of how you prepared for it. Provide supporting documents such as handouts, literature reviews, copies of slides or notes, or other material relevant to the presentation. If available, provide a summary of didactic evaluation forms (scores and comments) completed by the audience. If the presentation occurred at a professional meeting or in a setting outside of the routine teaching settings of residency, provide relevant material and discuss that in the cover letter.
