Core Faculty Development Program

Much of the faculty development calendar is made up of programming designed to target 7 core faculty domains of faculty identity that we seek to cultivate in our faculty.

Include Sessions that

  • review teaching and learning fundamentals, including learning session design and assessment, active learning, teaching with technology, and flipped classroom approaches,
  • support faculty service work and leadership development, including committee leadership orientations, optimal operation in shared governance structures, working in and leading teams, presentation and communication skills,
  • support scholarship development, including research and scholarship agenda development, team construction and alignment, and collaborative projects,
  • review contemporary trends in medical education,
  • provide training in educational technology, including instructional podium technology, Canvas, Camtasia, and other instructional tools.

The Faculty Development Program at CUSM supports faculty to be effective:

  • Independent, emotionally intelligent and creative servant leaders who build effective and collaborative teams;
  • Effective administrators capable of making and executing plans, strategies, and policies, skillfully managing people and resources;
  • Antiracist, development- and growth-focused, compassionate educators who engage in inclusive teaching, transformative pedagogy, and continuous improvement;
  • Researchers who actively engage students and the community in research projects and scholarly work that advances medical science;
  • Communicators who actively listen, facilitate open discussion, and demonstrate clear speaking and writing skills;
  • Global citizens who recognize and promote the diversity of background and beliefs among faculty, staff, students, and the broader local and global community in which we live;
  • Compassionate, patient-focused clinicians who demonstrate superior listening, diagnostic, and treatment skills.


We send out a monthly Faculty Development Event Calendar to all CUSM faculty. If you’re not receiving this and wish to, contact any member of our team. We’re working to add an event calendar to this website in summer 2024.
