Learning From Teaching
Learning from Teaching (LFT) represents a range of activities in which an accredited provider can facilitate practice-based learning and improvement – where the ‘practice’ could be the person’s professional “teaching practice” or “clinical practice” or “research practice”. The American Medical Association has authorized academic CME providers to certify a new category of American Medical Association (AMA) Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA)Category 1 Credit(s)™. “Learning from Teaching” is a descriptive label for this type of CME activity used for reporting to ACCME. Learning from Teaching credit may be claimed for academic endeavors in both undergraduate medical education (UME) and graduate medical education (GME), or for learning gained in the experience of being a CME speaker. IUSM has established the attached policy for tracking self-directed and individualized Learning from Teaching activities. The online submission form provided below will document the associated ACCME Criteria for Accreditation and associated learning outcomes. Physician faculty may be awarded credit at a 2-to-1 ratio to teaching/learning time. For example, faculty may be awarded 2.00 credits for 1 hour of learning. Credits should be rounded to the nearest one-quarter credit.
