Bio for Erica Howe, M.D., Course Director
Dr. Howe graduated from the University of Utah School of Medicine prior to completing her residency in Internal Medicine at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. After graduating from Tulane in 2007, she completed a year as chief resident. Her first faculty position was at Johns Hopkins Bayview in Baltimore where she practiced as an academic Hospitalist for three years before arriving to the University of Kansas Medical Center. While at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Howe developed various curriculums for Internal Medicine residents and medical students at Johns Hopkins University. Her interest in medical education continued when she moved to Kansas City and was hired as an academic Hospitalist at the University of Kansas and appointed as a Core Faculty for the Internal Medicine Residency Program in 2011.
In the spring of 2012, she introduced a faculty development series titled Doctors as Educators to the faculty at KU. This course focuses on teaching junior faculty how to improve their clinical teaching through active learning principles that include discussion of the theories of learning, teaching methods, teaching clinical reasoning, motivating the learner, addressing the difficult learner, conflict management and negotiation, giving feedback, setting expectations, and time management, among others.
Her endeavors in teaching and academic medicine have been recognized with numerous awards and honors. In 2013, Dr. Howe was elected as the only M.D. at the University of Kansas Medical Center to receive a Women in Medicine Scholarship to attend the American Association of Medical College's Women's Early-Career Professional Development Seminar. She was also one of five finalists school wide for the Rainbow Award in 2013, a medical student-elected award to recognize "teaching the art of medicine by example."
