July 16, 2012

Two Assistant Professors from the Department of Psychiatry have been selected to participate in the UNM Medical Education Scholars Program  (MES). Drs. Snehal Bhatt and Anilla Del Fabbro will dedicate time weekly for the next two years to develop their academic leadership skills and educational expertise through:  

  • reviewing and discussing the evidence base of important education principles
  • learning about and developing leadership skills
  • developing a curriculum plan
  • identifying a research question for a scholarly project – ideally collaborative in nature

According to the Medical Education Scholars website, “The MES Program is designed for faculty who see education as a significant part of their professional development.” This honor is granted to up to ten faculty from the School of Medicine each year.

Also currently participating in the program is Pamela Arenella, M.D.

Other Department faculty who have completed the two-year educational experience include Jeanne Bereiter, M.D.; Jonathan Bolton, M.D.; Deborah Dellmore, M.D.; Greg Franchini, M.D.; Kathryn Fraser, M.D.; and Cynthia King, M.D.
