BUSM+ Medical Education Badge Program

BUSM+ Medical Education Digital Badge Program provides you with the opportunity to learn the fundamentals about teaching and learning that you may have missed in your professional career or now want to review to enhance your teaching. The online, asynchronous program is conveniently offered 24/7 in 10 sessions available in a flexible schedule and is designed for busy practicing and retired health care professionals who also teach other professionals, students, and patients. Take a session or sign up for a competency badge and join the BUSM+ learning community.

Two programs were offered in 2015 and we took 2016 to review all the results and feedback. BUSM+ Medical Education Digital Badge Program is now retired and a new digital badge program will replace it soon.
