The purpose of the Clinician Scholar Educator (CSE) Award is to enhance education in musculoskeletal diseases for future doctors and rheumatology health professionals. Recipients of the award have demonstrated that they want to develop a career in education and are devoted to providing effective and efficient training. Learn about the history of the CSE award.

 

Active CSE RECIPIENTS


FY2020 RECIPIENTS

Jonathan S. Hausmann, MD

Jonathan S. Hausmann, MD
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

This project aims to improve the ability of rheumatology fellows to learn rapidly and efficiently and to develop mastery of basic science and immunology topics essential to the practice of rheumatology. These skills will become increasingly important to physicians in a rapidly-changing environment and will enhance their ability to generate new knowledge and improve the care they deliver to future patients.


Philip Seo, MD, MHS

Philip Seo, MD, MHS
Columbia University

This project will increase patient access to care by improving rheumatology trainees’ understanding of the diagnosis and management of the systemic vasculitides, thereby making it easier for them to receive expert care. By teaching rheumatology trainees about the nuances and the limits of the current standard of care for the systemic vasculitides, trainees will be in a better position to develop future treatments and cures.


FY2019 RECIPIENTS

Drexel University College of Medicine Dr. Arundathi  Jayatilleke

Jane S. Kang, MD, MS
Columbia University

Dr. Kang's research seeks to develop an interactive case-based online ethics curriculum for rheumatology fellows, so they can describe and recall major bioethical principles and apply these principles to analyze and assess bioethical issues in industry-related interactions, industry-funded rheumatology clinical research, and their own clinical cases and research projects.


Drexel University College of Medicine Dr. Arundathi  Jayatilleke

Jay Mehta, MD
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Very little is known about how early career pediatric rheumatologists make decisions about their careers, which makes it difficult to develop programs to advise and support them. Dr. Mehta's research aims to shed light on individual and social factors that impact how early career rheumatologists navigate their careers. The long-term goal of his work is to use these findings to inform recruitment strategies for medical students and residents and to create a framework for counseling early career pediatric rheumatologists.


Drexel University College of Medicine Dr. Arundathi  Jayatilleke

Rebecca Eli Sadun, MD, PhD
Duke University

Dr. Sadun's research involves the design, implementation, and evaluation of three curricula for use in training both adult and pediatric rheumatology fellows in key transition and transfer skills. Specifically, a longitudinal and experiential, a series of interactive web-based modules, and a stand-alone lecture will all be developed, piloted, and rigorously evaluated for their ability to increase rheumatology fellows’ confidence in transition skills, performance on an objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) transition station, and feedback on 360-degree evaluations. Ultimately, this suite of educational materials will enable rheumatologists to better utilize the ACR’s “transition toolkit,” improve the healthcare received by young adult rheumatology patients and enable rheumatology to lead the way in AYA transition care education.


FY2018 RECIPIENTS

Drexel University College of Medicine Dr. Arundathi  Jayatilleke

Irene Blanco, MD, MS
Albert Einstein College of Medicine

The social determinants of health are influenced by the presence (or lack of) resources and wealth both nationally and locally. They are the conditions in which people are born, live and age and are the main source of health inequity. Several populations are more affected than others by the rheumatic diseases where factors such as poverty, race, low level of education and poor access to care influence these disparities. This grant seeks to design and implement a health disparities curriculum to train rheumatology fellows to assess these issues to help improve disease outcomes for patients with the rheumatic diseases.


Drexel University College of Medicine Dr. Arundathi  Jayatilleke

Bethany A. Marston, MD
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

The Rheum4Science curriculum will include a series of web-based interactive tutorials that highlight key principles in basic science and clinical research methodology for rheumatology fellows, to supplement the educational resources that may be available to each fellowship program locally. Understanding how this curriculum is implemented and what factors are most motivating to learners, using self-determination theory, will improve the efficacy and impact of this resource, and help to ensure that graduates have the foundational knowledge and skills needed to understand research results and apply these to practice in an increasingly complex environment.
