The Office of Undergraduate Medical Education oversees a comprehensive Faculty Development program designed to support professional development across the academic community. This program is also dedicated to building a culture of mentorship, teaching and learning for all faculty and students across the academic continuum. The program has two components: a Faculty Development Workshop program and Medical Education Grand Rounds.
The Faculty Development Workshop Program offers sessions that focus on educational skill development and best practices for teaching to promote learning and the development of scholarly work. Examples of workshops that have been delivered as part of this program include: effective teaching methods; assessment; teaching with limited time; providing effective feedback; use of technology in medical education and writing effective multiple choice questions.
In addition to workshops, beginning in the Fall, 2011 the Office of Medical Education created a Medical Education Grand Rounds series. These sessions take place monthly on the NYMC campus and address best practices in medical education and are given by nationally recognized figures in medical education.
Faculty from the Office of Undergraduate Medical Education are also available for personal consultations for faculty who request assistance. Services offered include: peer feedback on teaching skills in a large or small group settings; curriculum development and delivery of effective feedback. Resource material is also available to faculty in our password-protected Faculty Development page on the campus Digital Curriculum Database (DCDB).
