Mentoring and Professionalism in Training (MAP-IT)
Presented By: Alice Fornari, EdD, RDN, Zucker School of Medicine, Hofstra/Northwell
According to ACGME guidelines, professionalism and "interpersonal communication skills that result in effective information exchange" are core competencies of residency training. To address this, Hofstra/Northwell developed the Mentoring and Professionalism in Training (MAP-IT) Program as a unique project to implement an interprofessional curriculum incorporating humanism as a core value in the professional development of health-care professionals throughout the Northwell Health System. The curriculum teaches team building, conflict resolution, and feedback along with strategies to balance well-being with professional commitments and growth. Initial research results indicate that it is an effective educational tool that can satisfy the ACGME professionalism curriculum requirement. Join Dr. Alice Fornari and Ms. Cicy George as they describe this innovative curriculum and the impact it has had at Hofstra/Northwell.
