APA Educational Scholars Program

Are you interested in educational scholarship, building a network of educational colleagues or working with national leaders in pediatric education?

The Educational Scholars Program (ESP) is now recruiting 30 new scholars for ESP Cohort 9 and the submission deadline is September 10, 2018. The ESP is a competitive national faculty development program for academic pediatric educators who wish to build their educational scholarship and leadership skills.

If you missed the TweetChat on Tuesday July 17th feel free to review the discussion and follow us on twitter at #BeAScholarESP.

We will be recruiting national faculty advisors for each of the scholars in the fall, so consider if you would like to help talented and eager junior educators reach their professional goals by being an advisor.
Congratulations to our ESP scholars and faculty!

We are proud of our 16 scholars who graduated at PAS 2018 after completion of the program requirements and successful dissemination of their educational scholarship.
We would like to thank Lindsey Lane, MD for her years of service to ESP as a faculty advisor, Cohort leader, ISM facilitator, Chair of Curriculum Committee and Co-Director of the program. We will miss her and wish her best of luck in her retirement.

The Educational Scholars Program (ESP) is excited to review the highly competitive applications submitted for Cohort 9.  We would like to thank the 37 reviewers who volunteered to review the applications! These roles are critical for selecting our next cohort of scholars so we greatly appreciate your time, effort and expertise.

We will be recruiting National Faculty Advisors for each of the Cohort 9 Scholars. The National Advisors will work closely with Leora Mogilner and Donna D’Alessandro, Cohort 9 Leaders and Wendy Hobson-Rohrer and Priti Bhansali, Faculty Development Leaders.  If you would like to help talented and eager junior educators reach their professional goals by being an advisor please apply!  We are recruiting both junior and senior advisors to help create a variety of mentoring relationships and expand our network of scholarly educators.

Congratulations to Becky Blankenburg, Priya Garg, Liz Hanson and Jean Petershack who will be taking on new leadership positions in the ESP.  We are confident they will help us expand the capabilities and reach of ESP in the future, especially related to strengthening our curriculum and technology tools, enhancing our evaluation methods and educational research capabilities, and building a strong and engaged alumni community.
