I attended all 42 hours of classes in the Cardiovascular System Course in order to help the course coordinator set the examination. What makes this unusual is that I am not a physician. As a PhD educator supporting faculty and the educational programs at our medical school I became a learner as well as a co-course co-coordinator. Attending all the classes has led me to discover what might become the future of faculty development and course renewal. I now know who teaches what and how so I can approach them to talk about any changes they may want to make in their teaching. I have also learned what the specific content of the course is which will allow me to connect with coordinators of concurrent and of supporting courses from earlier years in the hope of achieving some higher degree of integration. Taking the course with medical students has been one of the most interesting and professionally valuable tasks that I have ever undertaken, one that will be repeated.
