Teach and Learn

Our PCCM fellows participate in a broad-range of educational experiences. We conduct our core didactic series during protected education time on Tuesdays 12-3 PM with participation from PCCM fellows and faculty and subspecialty services. Revive Initiative for Resuscitation Excellence provides mobile simulation education for our fellows in the PICU and hospital-wide throughout the year. Additional critical care simulation education occurs during Boot Camp and on simulations days in the first and second years of fellowship training. 

We value education and provide opportunties for our PCCM fellows to become leaders in education through participation in the Stanford Medicine Teaching and Mentoring Academy and other medical education programs available on Stanford campus.

Educational Opportunities for Fellows

Fellow Advanced Educational Opportunities


Stanford Health Professions Education and Scholarship

A year-long development program in medical education designed to introduce clinical educators to fundamental concepts in education. The seminars are high-yield, relevant, and interactive, providing practical tips for bedside teaching, curriculum development, and education research. The program also offers an honors certificate for those that attend at least 7 seminars and complete a scholarly project. Seminars are held 5:15-6:30 PM on the first Wednesday of every month from August through June.

CHRI Grant Writing Club

Interactive grant writing workshop designed for all fellows in the Department of Pediatrics.  The goal is to teach the fundamentals of grant writing with a completed CHRI grant designed to meet any major grant deadline submissions. Contact Bonnie Halpern-Felsher with questions.

ICCR: Intensive Course in Clinical Research

ICCR provides a one week immersion course for new clinical investigators, senior residents, fellows, and junior faculty interested in pursuing careers in clinical and translational research. Nomination deadlines ~ July each year and courses are held ~ September.


Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign offers both one-year fellowship and semester courses.  

Simulation Instructor Course

The Stanford Center for Immersive and Simulation-based Learning Simulation Instructor Course is a 2-day interactive primer for novice and intermediate instructors as well as individuals who are currently using or plan to use immersive and simulation-based learning techniques in their teaching. Enrolled participants will have the opportunity to design, develop and implement their own simulation scenarios in small groups, followed by practice debriefing skills and techniques with direct feedback and coaching from CISL experts.

Advanced Airway Management and Fiberoptic Course 

The Stanford Advanced Airway Management Program (SAAMP) of the Department of Anesthesiology offers comprehensive, multidisciplinary airway training to a national and international audience. The course is ideally suited for anesthesiologists, critical care, emergency medicine, and ENT physicians.

Learn new, up-to-date information and instantly improve your advanced airway skills in this unique, intense 2-day course. We teach all aspects of advanced airway management in the operating room, emergency department, intensive care unit, and in adult and pediatric patients.

Essentials of Clinical Research

Over an 11 session series, this course, broken into four modules, provides a step-by-step model for how to design and conduct clinical research at Stanford. Upon course completion, attendees will have an introduction to how to

(1) design and analyze clinical studies and prepare protocols,

(2) comply with “Good Clinical Practice” guidelines for study conduct, data management, and relevant regulations,

(3) understand principles and practices underlying ethical and reproducible research, and

(4) deal with special issues that arise in cancer, pediatric, surgical and cardiovascular research.

The Department of Pediatrics at Stanford University creates a comprehensive research training program designed to provide outstanding training to prepare our fellows to excel as sub-specialty clinicians, researchers, teachers, and become leaders within the field of pediatrics. More information regarding these programs can be found on the Department of Pediatrics website:
