How might a pure competency-based curriculum change residency interview season?
OHSU is one of several schools that recently received an AMA-funded grant to push medical educational innovation.  Our new curriculum, YourMD (yeah it has a cool marketable name), is in many ways a test lab for this grant (to be clear, most of what I'm goin...

What does your academic rank have to do with how much you teach?
I've had this conversation a few times in my time as a clerkship director/ course director in medical school.  I have a spot that comes open for some one to do a lecture or teach a session, or I want to start a new educational activity.  I ask around to see...
