minute read

Matthew Rustici, MD, associate professor of pediatrics at CU School of Medicine, has been named a Macy Faculty Scholar for 2021.

The Macy Faculty Scholars Program is a highly selective program for educational innovators in medicine and nursing. Scholars receive salary support up to $100,000 per year over two years to implement an educational change project at their institutions and to participate in a program of career-development activities.

Rustici works clinically at Denver Health Medical Center in the Pediatric Emergency Department and Urgent Care, and he is co-director of a Transition To Residency (TTR) course at the CU School of Medicine. He works to foster collaboration between TTR course directors and coordinators nationwide with an annual TTR symposium and a bimonthly TTR Grand Rounds.

As a Macy Faculty Scholar, Rustici will create a curricular materials compendium for TTR courses, providing free and open access to TTR teaching materials. These resources will be curated and edited from existing TTR courses and provide a complete set of materials to run a new or existing TTR course.

“We are delighted to welcome Dr. Matthew Rustici to the 2021 class of Macy Faculty Scholars,” said Holly J. Humphrey, MD, president of the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation. “Dr. Rustici’s work developing and disseminating standardized, high-quality Transition To Residency course materials will help better prepare new residents to provide high-quality healthcare for all communities.”

Rustici’s mentor for the Macy Faculty Scholars Program is Rita Lee, MD, professor of medicine and director of health systems science and health equity education.
