Our Expertise

Established in 2008, the Postgraduate Education Program develops each educational resource with a team approach, incorporating varied perspectives and skill sets necessary to achieve effective and successful learning outcomes for all participants and trainees.

To develop our curriculum, content experts, typically faculty, are joined with an educator team focused on the curricular design and implementation. Developers/Designers are professional educators, well-versed in curricular design and varied delivery methods. Media producers create visual assets, including slides and videos, that amplify the content and provide multiple ways to connect with the information. Without thoughtful implementation, the learning experience would be lost, so each team also has an assigned coordinator who translates the design and curriculum to the user experience, be it in a classroom or online.

Utilizing their strengths and working together, staff and content experts ensure that every program, course, and resource is grounded in a sound educational model designed toward achieving desired student outcomes.

PGE is led by faculty director Elliott Antman, MD, professor of medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and faculty associate director Niteesh Choudhry, MD, PhD, professor of Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, along with more than a dozen staff members who support the work of the program. In any given year, faculty with expertise from academia, industry, and government agencies teach in courses, workshops, and trainings, created through the curriculum design process outlined above.
