Faculty Development

"Faculty development is a systematic process whereby faculty are supported and assisted by institutions to acquire and expand their knowledge and skills in teaching, education, administration, leadership, research, and other areas relevant to their faculty roles. The process is facilitated through informal and formal learning activities and educational programs, as well interventions at the organizational level” (AFMC Faculty Development Network, 2017).

In Continuing Professional Development, our faculty development activities are based on formal needs assessments, ongoing activity evaluations, and evidence-informed health professions education practice. Collaborations across Schulich Medicine & Dentistry education programs and departments contribute to the creation and implementation of faculty development events and resources, and thereby directly support Schulich Medicine & Dentistry curricular and organizational priorities.
