SCRANTON — Two members of Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine’s leadership team, alumni of the Harvard Macy Institute’s Program for Educators in Health Professions, were invited to return to Harvard as faculty for the next offering of the educational program.

Harvard Macy’s Program for Educators in Health Professions is designed to enhance the professional development of physicians, basic scientists and other healthcare professionals as educators.

Tanja Adonizio, of Clarks Summit, associate dean for student affairs, will serve as a faculty facilitator of a portion of the program, called Journal Club. Michelle Schmude, of Mountain Top, associate dean for admissions, enrollment management and financial aid and assistant professor in the School of Graduate Studies, will facilitate a Journal Club group, in addition to a project group. Adonizio and Schmude will also each “micro teach” a group of five to six attendees to help them hone their teaching skills.
