Faculty Development Task Force

This task force will examine current faculty-development offerings on education; construct a plan to build a more comprehensive set of activities; and explore the option to develop a certificate program in medical education. This task force will also establish a mentoring program for junior faculty members interested in developing careers as clinician-educators. In addition, this group will develop a system to consult with faculty members who are experiencing an education-related problem (e.g., poor teaching evaluations, poor course evaluations).
