The Pimped ACE Program
ACEs are Advanced Clinical Educators who use pimping as the effective teaching tool that it should be! ACEs are nominated by their students and recognized by Pimped with a Pimped Pin and Certificate.
We all know an amazing teacher who has spent countless hours honing their craft so students can learn faster and retain info longer. During residency and beyond, this can be a thankless, exhausting task when so many other aspects of clinical care also demand their attention. These teachers rarely get rewarded or even acknowledged for their extra efforts – they simply do it for the internal satisfaction of the “lightbulb moment” they provide students.
Let’s take a few minutes to celebrate, and thank, these amazing teachers who helped us all survive the insane learning curve of clinical clerkships.
