Eliza Bullis first developed an interest in medical education at Tufts University School of Medicine in 2011, where she took a course in Med Ed and took joy in her assignments to teach herself as well as others. She did her residency in combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at Yale New Haven Hospital, where she continued to engage in regular teaching on the wards and reports, enjoying getting students, co-residents, and faculty excited about a culture of joyous and shared learning. She participated in the newly developed Yale Medical Education Interest Group, presented regularly at morning reports, and larger multidisciplinary noon conferences. She contributed 3 chapters to the Yale Primary Care Curriculum. With her enthusiasm for learning and trying different teaching styles during her residency, Eliza was thrilled to take the role of Chief Resident in the Pediatrics Residency Program at Yale. There her experience in hands-on teaching and curriculum design grew exponentially with activities such as teaching on the wards, coaching other teachers, and implementing new residency curricula around Evidence Based Medicine, Clinical Reasoning, and Outpatient Pediatrics. Eliza is excited to continue her journey in medical education in her new role as an MITE scholar and hospitalist in the Internal Medicine and Geriatrics departments at MMC.
