Benefits of Joining a Mastermind Group for Medical Educators
There are many benefits to joining a mastermind group. Here are just a few:
- Learn from the “collective wisdom” of the group
- Develop as an educator with support from like-minded individuals
- Utilize a powerful network of invested medical educators who want to help each other and improve medical education
- Be held accountable by the group
- Brainstorm ideas and get immediate feedback from a diverse group of medical educators
The Disrupt Mastermind Group (creativity and innovation in medical education) will be FREE for any interested medical educator (anywhere in the world) for the 1st 12 month. The purpose of this mastermind group is to discuss innovation and creativity in medical education and to learn how to truly make a difference in the lives of learners. This group will meet once a month via video call.
Disrupt aims to bring together motivated medical educators from around the world to discuss the best ways to be effective “learning choreographers” for our learners. This group will discuss creative and innovative ways to be an effective, motivational, and inspirational medical educator.
Format of the Disrupt Mastermind Group
The Disrupt Mastermind Group will meet once a month for 1-2 hours on a video conferencing platform called MasterMind Manager. Once the 10 members are chosen we will choose a meeting day and time, and we will provide specific details (as well as a welcome manual) to group members.
Disrupt will be FREE for a 12 month trial period. After this time, the cost will be $100 USD per month.
Monthly video calls will serve as the main structure for the group. Each month, group members will take turns on the “hot seat,” in which other group members will take turns offering advice and solutions for some of the struggles YOU face as an educator. One of the beautiful things about a mastermind group is that you get advice/resources from the whole group.
Medutopia will keep track of each meetings discussion, the readings, and other assignments.
In order to have a successful mastermind group, each member needs to be a contributor and not sit in silence as the rest of the group talks and gives advice. Mastermind groups work best when all are working in harmony to help everyone in the group.
Here is a sample of what our agenda might look like (from the Mastermind Toolkit):
In this mastermind group we will discuss relevant podcasts, blogs, websites, courses, and books related to medical education. There will be reading assignments for all members of the group, and assignments will be given out at each meeting. This will include books that are relevant to medical education and professional growth and development.
