Mission of Faculty Development

The DHSE Faculty Development Planning Committee creates and delivers effective programs that develop and nurture our diverse faculty as leaders in undergraduate medical education, and research excellence.

Our mission is to facilitate the development of faculty skills in the domains listed above and to help foster an organizational environment in which faculty feel empowered to continually work toward improved educational scholarship. This mission relates directly to the ultimate goal of optimizing education at all levels of training throughout the continuum of medical education at UICOMP. This will maximize every student’s potential to provide excellent and compassionate patient care which is our ultimate purpose.
