The Stanford Faculty Development Program in Medical Teaching is a longstanding nationally-recognized teaching improvement effort. Since 2007, the School of Medicine has invited teaching faculty members to participate in this intensive faculty development program to help faculty enhance versatility in teaching, better analyze and improve teaching encounters, and engage in collegial discussions about approaches to teaching. The course is held on the WSU SOM campus and is facilitated by an instructor who has been trained at the Stanford Faculty Development Center.
