Fellowship in Medical Education

This faculty development program focuses on developing medical educators who are skilled at creating, implementing, leading, and evaluating educational initiatives. While faculty members have generally taken on these roles without special preparation, the Fellowship in Medical Education is intended to enrich your knowledge, skills, and attitudes for making informed educational decisions.

Professional Development Speakers Bureau

The Professional Development Speakers Bureau is a list of faculty members at Dell Med who have indicated their willingness to work with programs across the institution to provide presentations that can be tailored to meet a variety of learner needs and time frames, from more formal lectures to workshops or resident conferences.

Please note: The list is restricted to Dell Med employees only. You must have an UT EID to access our speakers list.

Certificate in Clinical Teaching

The Dell Med Certificate in Clinical Teaching is designed to support faculty members in the Education Leadership and/or Clinician Educator track in enhancing their skills in exceptional clinical teaching, mentorship, performance assessment, and outstanding role modeling of person-centered care.

Residents-as-Teachers Program

Physicians entering residency training may not have learned these important skills during their four years in medical school. Preparation for teaching medical students is also necessary for other non-faculty instructors, such as graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and advanced practice providers.

Learning Technology Quick Help Sessions

Live 30 minute online sessions to assist faculty and staff.

Women's Leadership Conversation Series

An informal discussion with visiting female faculty. All faculty are welcome. Please email Tyler Rhoads if you have any questions.

Coaching for Performance Improvement
Facilitating Small Group Discussions to Promote Learning

Faculty development resources and programs are designed to assist Dell Medical School faculty members in the continuous quality improvement of their work as teachers and scholars.

We facilitate programs to stimulate innovation, build capacity, promote scholarship, support well-being and help faculty members achieve their academic goals. Many of the programs and resources are available to individuals who have a teaching role in a health care organization or the community — regardless of whether or not they have a faculty appointment.

Members of the Department of Medical Education provide leadership for the program, collaborating with faculty and staff from across Dell Medical School and Seton Healthcare Family in the design, delivery and evaluation of faculty development. Together, they work to expand the knowledge base for how to best support educators.
