Family Medicine

Faculty Development

Welcome to Faculty Development in the Department of Family Medicine.

As the discipline of Family Medicine is continually evolving, our department strives to ensure all department members remain at the leading edge of knowledge and innovation. To this end, Faculty Development provides high quality education in the areas of teaching, research and scholarship, and administration.

How are Faculty Development Sessions Selected?

The content of faculty development sessions for our teachers is determined by periodic needs assessments, the department's strategic direction, and suggestions from department members.

How is Faculty Development Delivered?

Faculty development is delivered in a variety of ways"
  • Seminars, workshops, lectures, and peer coaching are delivered in-person throughout the year.
  • Information and resources are distributed via newsletter announcements, emails, and online modules.
  • We make learning fun through the use of games and activities such as our Amazing Race-inspired education session and Easter Egg Hunts.
We share information about professional development and educational opportunities on our website Education Sessions and Conferences pages.
