       Faculty Development Program

In response to ongoing changes in health care
  delivery and the distribution of our
  programs, our mandate is:

     “to aid faculty in attaining the knowledge and
        skills relevant to your role as educators,
       researchers, administrators and scholars”.

11                              Faculty of Medicine
     Faculty Development Program
It is our belief that a strong faculty
development program will:
“sustain the vitality of the
Faculty of Medicine,
both now and in the future”
