Subha Ramani, MBBS, MMEd, MPH, is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and a faculty member in the Division of General Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), Boston, MA. She is a general internist with interest in complex clinical problems, practices primary care at the Phyllis Jen Center, and supervises and teaches residents in outpatient and inpatient settings. As the Director of Evaluation and Educational Scholarship for the Internal Medicine Residency Program, she leads a few educational initiatives in the Department of Medicine, aiming to increase educational research and scholarship among residents. Dr. Ramani leads the assessment redesign in the residency program which includes implementation of a milestones-based assessment system, improving the feedback process within the department and faculty development in these areas. Her other educational leadership roles include serving as a course director for the Department of Medicine Medical Education day and the Research in Medical Education course for the HMS MMSC in Medical Education. Dr. Ramani has long been a champion of bedside clinical teaching to enhance clinical skills and clinical reasoning among residents. She is currently participating in an initiative to implement regularly scheduled bedside teaching rounds for residents by expert bedside teachers in conjunction with a teaching resident. This initiative will not only engage expert clinicians in directly teaching residents, but also motivate residents in improving their own clinical skills as they participate in the teaching of these skills. She is a member of the HMS Academy and participates in and presents faculty development sessions for educators. Finally, she is enrolled in a PhD program in Health Professions Education at the University of Maastricht, Netherlands. Her research aims to explore the institutional feedback culture and improve the giving and receiving of feedback within the department of medicine.
