Faculty who attend 10 workshops over a two-year period will receive a Certificate of Commitment to Faculty Development in Medical Education. The certificate can be included as part of the Teaching Portfolio, which in turn can be used for purposes of application for membership to the Academy for Excellence in Education and/or as part of the portfolio for promotion and tenure.

Education Grand Rounds

This series features lectures from invited speakers, usually from outside of the University of Virginia, who are specialists in various topics related to medical education. Attendance during workshops in this series counts toward the attendee receiving a Certificate of Commitment to Faculty Development in Education.

Excellence in Education Presentations

Each year, authors of the six of the most highly rated poster abstracts are selected for oral presentation during the Education & Research Innovation sessions as part of Excellence in Education Week

Education Journal Club

The School of Medicine revised its education curriculum. To prepare faculty to teach to the revised curriculum, a series of faculty development programs were developed, including this monthly series of discussions about pertinent journal articles. Please note that attending the journal club meetings does NOT count toward earning a Certificate of Commitment to Faculty Development in Medical Education. Journal Article citations reviewed during these meetings are located here.
