Competency Based Faculty Development

Our Clinical Faculty Development Program is a key part of the TUCOM Competency Based Faculty Development Program. We believe the clinical portion of our program is essential to support our clinical and adjunct faculty in their roles as teachers, mentors, and leaders to our students.  Our program promotes professional advancement in educational and leadership skills, as well as personal development. Many offerings in our Clinical Faculty development include both AMA and AOA CME credits for participating faculty. We offer live, remote and asynchronous learning opportunities. Faculty interested in further developing their academic skills are also welcome to attend our Core Faculty academic sessions on campus and remotely when offered. Additionally, we actively strive to help clinical sites meet ACCGME Common Core guidelines for faculty development, systems based practice and quality improvement, practiced based learning and improvement, professionalism and leadership and academic learning.

Core Competencies for medical Educators

The faculty development program, like our medical student training, is based on a curricular framework of six core competencies. Topics of learning are divided into four main learning areas. The key learning areas are aligned with the 6 core competencies of faculty development.
