In this workshop, members of the Haile T. Debas Academy of Medical Educators demonstrate the use of an educator'€™s portfolio to document evidence of the quantity, quality, and scholarly contributions of educator activities. As a supplement the traditional CV, the educator'€™s portfolio can benefit UCSF educators in securing academic advancements as well as strengthening their applications to the Academy of Medical Educators. During the last hour, representatives of the School of Medicine Academic Affairs office will present general information about successful academic advancement.

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

Describe an educator's portfolio and the rationale for using one.
Identify the five components of the educator's portfolio and the criteria for judging each.
Explain how a portfolio can be incorporated into advancement and promotion considerations.
Initiate writing own portfolio.
List tips for applying to the Academy of Medical Educators using a portfolio.
Review UCSF promotion processes and how a portfolio relates to Advance.

Advance Preparation

Because this is a working session, each participant must bring a portable computing device to use to work on their own portfolio during the session.
