Creating a Faculty Development Program

Creating a Faculty Development Program – Building on Opportunities and Overcoming Challenges

  • Yvonne Steinert, McGill University, Canada
  • Ivan Silver, University of Toronto, Canada
Building a faculty development (FD) program can be a challenging yet exhilarating experience for health professions educators and administrators. A systematic approach that is based on theoretical assumptions, trends in health professions education, adult learning principles, clear goals and objectives, an explicit design strategy and programmatic evaluation, can help to overcome the many challenges inherent to implementing a FD program. The goal of this Masterclass is to provide participants with an opportunity to review the available evidence, discuss a suggested design framework, and exchange experiences in creating a FD program, using their own challenges and opportunities to guide the conversation.
