Faculty Development Program
The overall mission of this program is to help provide our faculty with the clinical, educational, and research skills needed for academic success and career satisfaction.
Excellence in Teaching
The focus of the program for the 2014-2015 academic year is “Excellence in Teaching,” with most activities addressing different aspects of teaching. This includes sessions to optimize bedside physical examination teaching, expert guidance on how to teach difficult topics such as communication at the end of life, and coaching on using teaching methods which lead to better learning. A common theme that emerged from our 2013-2014 annual survey is continued uncertainty around mentorship and promotion. Several sessions will target this topic, including “Meet the Professor” sessions with faculty in our division, and discussions with section chiefs about promotion.
This page will be kept updated with upcoming seminars and maintain an archive of past presentations. We will also maintain a curated collection of high yield materials targeted to your faculty development needs in the Resources section below.
