Coaching Principles for a Diverse Student Body

A core component of health professions education includes the development of a student's professional identity. An increasingly diverse student body brings a wide range of knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors. Thus, health educators cannot rely on their own identities and expertise to impart knowledge, rather they must adapt their coaching skills to focus through the learner's lens.

In this webinar, our certified coaching team introduces participants to fundamental coaching principles and skills to be applied in various health professions education spaces.

Institutional Success Team

Leading this session are two members of the OnlineMedEd Institutional Success team. At OnlineMedEd, Maggie, Rebecca, and their teammates contribute subject matter expertise around curriculum design, faculty and student assessment, and help solve institutional challenges around administration and accreditation. Made up of peer educators, this team works directly with administration and faculty at our institutional partners with a focus on instructional design and implementation of best practices for hybrid learning.
