Educational Resources

The Office of Faculty Development (OFD) and The Institute for Excellence in Education (IEE)

The OFD and IEE offer several sessions for medical educators to build skills including half day workshops on teaching skills and educational scholarship. Technically the courses are for faculty, however we always hold a few spots for trainees to participate free of charge. IEE website also has free online modules to improve teaching skills.

Longitudinal course in Teaching Skills

The goal of this course is to develop master educators and leaders in medical education. Each year we provide a scholarship for a clinical fellow to participate. The course begins in September of each year. We have our clinical fellow scholars for this year already but it is a great resource for the future.
