Academic Primer Series: Five Key Papers for Consulting Clinician Educators



Clinician educators are often asked to perform consultations for colleagues.  Invitations to consult and advise others on local problems can help foster great collaborations between centres, and  allows for an exchange of ideas between programs.  In this article, the authors identify and summarize several key papers to  assist emerging clinician educators with the consultation process.


A consensus building process was used to generate a list of key papers that describe the importance and significance of educational consulting, informed by social media sources. A three-round voting methodology, akin to a Delphi study, determinedthe most impactful papers from the larger list.



Summaries of the five most highly rated papers on education consultation are presented in this paper.  These papers were determined by a mixed group of junior and senior faculty members, who have summarized these papers with respect to their relevance for their peer groups.


Five key papers on the educational consultation process are presented in this paper. These papers offer  background and perspective to help junior faculty gain a grasp of consultation processes.
