Cathy’s teaching experience is career long. A former midwife, she taught residents and medical students clinical Family Medicine for 18 years in Maine with a focus on procedural skills teaching, obstetrics, women’s health, and innovation in design of clinical teaching methods. She has been Predoctoral director for the Department of Community and Family Medicine since 2008 here at Geisel, concentrating on curricular innovation, distance learning methodology, and student support and mentoring. She has strong interests in active learning and enjoys helping facilitate the transition from more traditional teaching methods into more active modalities. She has extensive experience in advising and mentoring of students and leads several groups designed to support and promote students’ physician identity transition and formation. She is particularly interested in the humanistic and psychological development of students into physicians, and believes deeply in facilitation as a skill that can be taught to physicians.
Cathy would be happy to mentor faculty in the areas of teaching in primary care, student advising, active learning principles and practice, Balint teaching and training, and small and large group facilitation.
