Thank you for your interest in the APEX Teaching Program. Participants will be chosen via a thorough peer-review process. The applicant must be committed to attending two consecutive Pediatric Hospital Medicine conferences, beginning with the PHM Conference scheduled for July 19-22, 2018, in Atlanta, Georgia. The applicant must also be prepared to participate in both independent and online instruction during the months between the conferences. The applicant must identify a local mentor, or request assistance in finding one. Upon acceptance to the program, the applicant is expected to meet with the identified mentor on a quarterly basis, either in person or via
phone/web-conference, to discuss progress towards meeting teaching goals. In addition, the mentor will observe and provide feedback for at least two of the applicant's teaching sessions. If necessary, teaching sessions can be video-recorded and shared with mentor at a later date.
Application materials will be available in November 2017. The deadline for applications is January 15, 2018, and applicants will be notified of the review committee’s decision by the end of February, 2018.
