Longitudinal Program Overview

It is recognized that not all people learn effectively from the same teaching strategy.

This optional Longitudinal RasT Program is designed to further enhance residents’/fellows’ ability to teach medical students, colleagues, staff, and patients by expanding their teaching skills.

UF College of Medicine

Program Completion Requirements

A resident/fellow must attend a minimum of 10 unique topics (monthly curriculum offered approximately twice over three years), to complete the Resident as Teacher Longitudinal Program. For those that are in a 1 year fellowship, you must attend 70% of the sessions (8 sessions) during the year to complete the program. Recognition will be awarded late Spring.

These interactive sessions are approximately one hour in length. Sign in required for workshop credit.

The RasT workshop sessions will be in-person and we will be observing the requirements of the building COVID protocols.
