The directors of many medical education accreditation bodies have called for an increased focus on teacher training for physicians and other medical professionals. As the role of specialist physicians becomes busier, many of their traditional teaching expectations have been transferred to residents and medical students. Many medical school directors have created Resident as Teacher (RAT) curricula to better prepare their students as educators. In this project, the author reviewed the literature relating to existing RAT programs. After reviewing the literature, the author created a RAT curriculum to be utilized on Medicine in the Wild, a month long, expeditionary medical school elective offered by the Wilderness Medicine Institute of NOLS and the Harvard Associated Emergency Medicine Residency.
