Rachel Goode, MD, and Jeffrey Hine, MD, are the recipients of the 2021 Geoffrey David Chazen Faculty Award for Innovation in Medical Education.
This Award was established by the Chazen family in memory of Geoffrey David Chazen, a Vanderbilt University School of Medicine alumnus. The award recognizes a faculty member or members who have made special contributions to the educational programs of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine through the development and implementation of effective innovation in educational approach.
Goode is a development-behavioral Pediatrician and an assistant professor in the Division of Developmental Medicine. She is an active clinician educator across the continuum of learners as well as a leader for many clinical and educational programs.
Hine is a clinical psychologist and an assistant professor in the Division of Developmental Medicine, where he serves as the director of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center/TRIAD Primary Care Outreach program.
Goode and Hine are receiving the Chazen Award for their innovative curriculum that introduced e-learning modules, asynchronous learning activities, and active, hands-on experiences targeting enriched learning in autism spectrum disorder in the developmental-behavioral pediatrics rotation. They designed and implemented a curriculum on screening and testing for autism that residents learn during the rotation.
“The applicability and transferability of the curriculum ensures that future health care professionals are equipped to effectively play their part in the early identification and treatment of individuals who may have autism. One of the most impressive elements of the innovative curriculum that Drs. Goode and Hine designed is that within one week of the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, they converted it to an online, fully remote educational intervention,” said Joseph Gigante, MD, professor of Pediatrics and director of the Academy for Excellence in Education.
“This innovative approach has had a huge impact on Vanderbilt pediatrics residents and is being rapidly adopted into developmental behavioral pediatrics curricula across the country. This award was established to recognize a faculty member who has made special contributions to the educational programs of the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine through the development and implementation of effective innovation in educational approach.”
