Stanford Faculty Development Center for Medical Teachers  

Teaching Workshops at Stanford University School of Medicine

Purpose: To assist medical teachers at Stanford across all levels of medical education, including undergraduate, graduate, and continuing medical education
Programs: To meet this goal, we conduct a number of programs at Stanford with support from the Dean's Office at the School of Medicine.
  We provide periodic teaching improvement workshops and consultation tailored for basic science and clinical faculty, medical residents, and teaching assistants. Previously trained SFDC facilitators assist Center Co-Directors, Drs Kelley Skeff and Georgette Stratos in presenting the workshops. These include Stanford faculty members, Drs Peter Pompei and Sallie DeGolia.
  Each year at the end of October, faculty from other institutions who are attending the SFDC's facilitator-training course teach the Clinical Teaching seminars to local faculty and residents.
  As part of a new Stanford initiative focused on improving teaching in CME, we are expanding our curriculum to address the challenges of teaching in this context.
Results: Program evaluation results demonstrate a positive effect of the teaching workshops on participants' knowledge, skills and attitudes related to teaching.
