Eric Gantwerker, MD, MS, MMSc (MedEd), FACS is back for a second interview. He is a pediatric otolaryngologist at Cohen Children’s Hospital at Northwell Health, associate professor of otolaryngology at Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra, and vice president/ medical director at Level Ex, a medical videogame company. In a previous episode, we discussed leveraging video games for skill building. In this episode, we talk about education. As physicians, we are responsible for teaching in a lecture setting, on rounds, in office hours, and for some of us, in the operating room, so we discuss what we know of current educational science and how to apply it to each of those settings.
Dr. Gantwerker holds a Master of Medical Science (MMSc) in medical education with a focus on educational technology, educational research, cognitive science of learning, and curriculum development from Harvard Medical School and a Master of Science in physiology and biophysics from Georgetown University. His clinical focus includes complex aerodigestive disorders, airway reconstruction, children with tracheostomies, persistent obstructive sleep apnea, and quality improvement.
