The UNC Academy of Educators (AOE) is now accepting applications for the Teaching As a Resident: Highlighting the Evidence and Enthusiasm of Learning (TARHEEL) Program. Newly revamped and piloted in 2020, the AOE TARHEEL Program offers residents the opportunity to participate in a standardized program to improve cross-department collaboration, enhance engagement between faculty and residents, and increase academic scholarly projects and publications, beneficial to enhancing faculty educational scholarship. This curriculum augments the teaching skills of residents in mentoring and educating medical students, physician assistant students, and other learners across the UNC Hospitals and the Area Health Education Centers system. Sessions are facilitated by UNC faculty and the TARHEEL Program Co-Directors Drs. Katie Weinel (Psychiatry), Winston Li (Psychiatry), and Eric Zwemer (Pediatrics).
All residents are eligible to apply. Applications should be submitted here by noon EST on July 22, 2021. Applicants are asked to complete three (3) short essay responses and submit an updated copy of their CV (in PDF format). Before applying, please ensure that you are able to commit to preparing and attending a majority of the in-person and virtual sessions in either the fall session (September – December 2021) or spring session (February – May 2022) on Wednesday evenings between 5-7pm (final time to be determined).
