Faculty Development Program


What follows is an outline of the program intended to prepare California Northstate University College of Medicine faculty members (both in-house and community-based) for their academic roles and to improve their skills in the areas of teaching and learning, assessing students, research and administration.


Each of the following faculty development sessions is structured to last approximately two hours. Meetings will be held approximately three times per month and in most cases will also be associated with a workshop.
