Faculty Development

One of the missions of the Academy of Medical Education Scholars is to design and oversee faculty development programs in educational principles and techniques. This is accomplished in part by presenting faculty development workshops. Additionally, links to faculty development sites and literature can be found on this site. Also, AMES works in close collaboration with the College of Medicine Office of Medical Student Education (OMSE), which hosts faculty development workshops. The OMSE website lists these workshops and can be found here. A list of resources for faculty development provided by OMSE can be found here.
