We are recruiting Family Medicine faculty to teach in the Academic Half Day series. Please contact us ( if you would like to teach or have any thoughts on the series.

Faculty Development Teacher Series: Faculty Advising - Our Roles as Coaches and Mentors:

Drs Christina Cookson and Jamie Wickett recently led a faculty development session that described roles of coaches and mentors in medicine, reviewed accreditation standards for faculty advising, and explored how clinical preceptors in family medicine can fulfill the roles using the new Periodic Review Form. An archived recording of the session can be reviewed on our livestream website.

Faculty Advisor Program:

The purpose of the Faculty Advisor Program is to provide longitudinal mentoring and educational support and guidance for our residents. Residents will have an assigned Faculty Advisor, the Faculty Member who will be supervising during family medicine block training. Residents should contact their Faculty Advisor to arrange to meet three times per year. The first meeting should be scheduled in October/November.

To help you prepare for the Faculty Advisor meeting, residents will be asked to log into MyFM to document their progress in the program using field notes, academic credits, and procedure logs. There will be a tab under “Resident Assessment” where residents can download the Periodic Review Form with associated data from MyFM already populated. Before meeting with their Faculty Advisor, Residents should download the form and reflect on the areas asked within the Periodic Review Form. During the meeting, the Resident and Faculty Advisor will complete the Periodic Review Form together within One45. Residents will receive email reminders three times a year to assist with the process.
