Teach the Teacher Program

Equipping Haitian medical and nursing educators with the tools they need to provide quality training

TEACH THE TEACHER (Formation des Formateurs), a training program devised by EqualHealth, is dedicated to helping Haitian doctors and nurses become the best teachers they can be by providing participants with a foundation in the principles of effective education.

The Need

As in many developing countries, inadequate numbers and training of health personnel are important contributors to poor health outcomes in Haiti.  Accordingly, the Haitian medical establishment has identified the expansion and development of training programs as a high priority, and programs like the University Hospital of Mirebalais (HUM) are now giving Haiti’s next generation of health professionals access to new training opportunities.

However, many of Haiti’s medical educators have limited experience with the supervision and instruction of trainees, and if Haiti’s people are to consistently receive the high-quality care they deserve in the future, Haitian medical educators must be prepared to meet the challenge of training this new generation of clinicians and teachers as effectively as possible.

The Program

Developed with input from education professionals, clinician-educators, and our Haitian colleagues, Teach the Teacher is an innovative curriculum designed to provide participants with the skills they will need to optimize their trainees’ learning experiences.

The didactic component of the program consists of a multi-tiered series of lectures and workshops with both introductory and advanced presentations. This is joined by a practical component consisting of direct observation of faculty engaging in their daily teaching followed by feedback sessions.

Topics covered include:

Feedback
Evaluation
Effective small group teaching techniques
How to give an interactive lecture
Strategies for managing teaching rounds
Rules for effective Powerpoint presentations
And more…

Results

Teach the Teacher is currently being piloted at HUM, where reviews from participants have been very positive.  Quotes from participants have included:
