Not Your Father’s (Nor Your Mother’s) Presentation: Teaching the Newest Generation of Medical Students & Residents

They have grown up with MTV, cable and the Internet. How they learn, how they interact with their world and how they search for information is vastly different from how their instructors and teachers do it. These differences are creating some interesting tensions (and even, dare we say it, some hostility!) in the classrooms and on the wards as this newest generation (labeled Gen Y, the Millennials and ME) enters our medical schools and residencies.John Molidor

So how should you teach these days? How might you approach these learners? How can you reach them where they hang out? The answers to these questions will be covered in this session. This video presents a fast-paced, practical and informative look at how we can teach in this new day and age.

The presenter is Dr. John B. Molidor, professor of Psychiatry and OMERAD, and community assistant dean for the Flint campus. Dr. Molidor comes to use from a family of 10 children, 23 nieces and nephews, and 17 great nieces and nephews, where, he says, he is getting a first-hand look at the newest generation of learners.


Presentation length is 58 minutes
