After spending close to three decades in school, I thought I was an expert on what works and doesn’t work in teaching. But as I started my year as chief resident in internal medicine charged with helping shape and administer our primary care curriculum, I quickly learned that I was no expert. I knew all the ideals and hot topics in medical education, such as patient-centered care, team-based care, inter-professional education and social determinants of health, but found myself facing the same struggles that many medical educators face — how to fit it into an already busy residency schedule in a practical but meaningful way.
