Faculty Development

Faculty Development graphicWhat is faculty development?
Faculty development is a broad range of activities to renew or assist faculty, supervisors, preceptors, instructors, teachers and clinical educators. These activities are designed to improve an individual’s knowledge and skills in areas considered essential to their performance as teachers, educators, administrators, leaders and researchers.

Who should attend faculty development activities?
These events and activities are aimed at anyone at North York General Hospital who has a role relating to teaching and education. You do not need to actually hold a “Faculty appointment” at a university or college to participate in these activities.

Opportunities available:
The Centre for Education offers physicians and health professional staff many opportunities for faculty and professional development. These include:
  • Enhancing Clinical Teaching

    Enhancing Clinical Teaching is an interactive three-evening teacher development series for physicians at North York General Hospital on how to be a better teacher and supervisor in the clinical setting. We encourage you to attend all three sessions for the complete experience, as concepts will build on each other. However, we also realize that life gets in the way. So each session is designed as a stand-alone workshop if you can't attend all three.

  • ESSNCE — Introduction to Education Scholarship
    ESSNCE is a longitudinal faculty development program at North York General Hospital for staff and physicians to develop knowledge and skills in the area of “Education Scholarship.” Through a series of monthly 90-minute workshops, participants will be mentored through the process from an idea to completion of a scholarly project related to education.

  • Preceptor Workshop (foundational teachings skills)
    This is a one-day workshop designed to offer clinical teachers the opportunity to share their teaching experiences and build their teaching skills and abilities together.
