About Faculty Development Core Programming

Our core FD programming (with approved study credits) is offered monthly throughout the year, excluding July and August.

T-TIME is part of the core curriculum for the Clinician Educator Diploma Program.  It is open for anyone to attend (you do not need to be enrolled in the fellowship program). 

T-TIME occurs monthly on the second calendar Thursday from 6:00-7:30pm (excluding July & August).  Sessions consist of two 45-minute workshop presentations and will take place virtually via Zoom (we hope to have some in-person sessions in the future). 

T-TIME will cover the core topics within the CEd program.  Presenters will be faculty from each core Unit.  Topics include:

  • Education theory made simple
  • How to do a curriculum needs assessment
  • Performing an Education Consultation
  • Tips for reading a MedEd paper

Asynchronous Learning

Online Canvas Programming - Since 2022 Faculty Development has been focused on developing longitudinal programming on Canvas that can be accessed by faculty asynchronously throughout the year. These courses are based on areas of need and include an orientation for new faculty, clinical teaching skills, professionalism, EDI, and other topics specific to UGME, PGME, and so forth. These programs are offered for free to all faculty, staff, residents and students. Learn more.

Timely Topics in Medical Education (T-TIME) archived recordings

Medical Education Grand Rounds (MEGR) previously occurred monthly in Faculty Development from 2017-2020. Sessions involved either a discussion around a medical education article of interest or a presentation of current research followed by discussion. While the focus is medical education, these sessions were open to all and the topics were usually applicable to other areas of health science education or education in general.
