Faculty Development

Building capacity in UCSF faculty and learners as educators and educational scholars.

Get started with improving your education skills with these CFE programs that are open to faculty, residents, fellows, and volunteer clinical professors at UCSF and at affiliated institutions. UCSF staff who find the program relevant to their work may participate: 

Med Ed Grand Rounds
Short, up-to-the-minute lectures focused on education research, often with visiting scholars

Educational Skills Workshops
Use our interactive calendar to find information about upcoming workshops and register. NOTE: Priority in workshop registration is given to those who teach UCSF learners and those participating in the Teach for UCSF Certificate Program or CFE longitudinal faculty development programs.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Champion Training 
This free training includes education on implicit biases and microaggressions, coaching in skills related to addressing these issues, and training in how to apply thoughtful, active listening and empathy to support a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment.

Teach for UCSF Certificates
The program creates defined educational paths in 8 areas so that individuals can develop the focused teaching skills they choose and receive a certificate in recognition of achievement. 

TOP - Teaching Observation Program 
The Teaching Observation Program (TOP) is for faculty to find a peer who can give them feedback on their teaching in a safe, supportive environment.

ESCape - Education Scholarship Conference 
ESCape is a weekly lunchtime “brown bag” group scholarship consultation session that provides the opportunity to consult with education researchers and other colleagues in a friendly group setting.

EJE - Equity and Justice in Education (EJE) 
Pronounced (“edge”), the EJE Works-in-Progress meetings empower educators, educational researchers, and learners to utilize rigorous educational research methodology to identify bias and unequal power distribution to advance equitable and inclusive solutions in opportunity and achievement across the continuum of health sciences education.
