Peer Coaching

The VCU School of Medicine Peer Coaching Program is a confidential and collaborative process that enables medical educators to reflect on practices, experiment with new instructional strategies (ie. flipped classroom, team-based learning), and discuss results with a trusted colleague.  The program’s goal is to encourage the development of new skills, build faculty relationships, and solve challenges related to medical education, while promoting a culture of collaboration, cooperation, and teaching excellence.

This program is NOT for the purpose of faculty evaluation is NOT intended to remediate or “fix” teachers.
