Educational Scholars Program

APA Educational Scholars Program

The mission of the APA Educational Scholars Program is to assist pediatric educators in developing themselves as productive, advancing and fulfilled faculty members and to increase the quality, status and visibility of pediatric educators in academia. This faculty development program targets academic pediatricians who wish to build their skills in educational scholarship. We aim to teach scholars how to develop, implement, evaluate and disseminate educational interventions or evaluation methods by a creative, planned and rigorous process.

The curriculum includes didactic sessions, self-directed learning modules, development of an educator portfolio, and a mentored project. Scholars are expected to complete the full curriculum, including projects, over 3 years. ESP Graduates earn a Certificate of Excellence in Educational Scholarship.

Applications will be accepted on or before September 10, 2018. Applicants will be notified on about December 1.
