Faculty Teaching Development

Jump to: Activity List | Resources

Welcome to the new on-line home for all of us with a commitment and passion for medical education.

Medicine is taught in diverse settings (classroom, simulation center, clinic, ICU, and procedure suite to name a few) to a diverse set of learners (students, residents, fellows, and colleagues) with different abilities and life experiences. As teachers our task is to reach each of them at a different place in their education to help them become the best physician they can be. It is through this role that we impact the care of every patient our trainees will ever see or the interaction with every colleague our trainees will ever have – be it in a clinic, an operating room, a research lab, or anywhere else their path leads.

In the same manner in which we work to stay current in our respective fields, we should strive to improve our teaching methods. On this site we will connect to local events and on-line resources to create a community of engaged faculty focusing on our continued development as excellent educators.
