Register to attend the Education Showcase

The Center for Faculty Educators (CFE) is proud to present UCSF's 18th Annual Education Showcase, an event that highlights the scholarly work of UCSF faculty, residents, and students, and encourages continued evaluation and dissemination of this work. This event is filled with opportunities for faculty development and to see the variety and quality of the work in which our UCSF colleagues are engaged throughout the year.

Our visiting scholar will be Cees van der Vleuten, PhD, UCSF Presidential Chair 2018-2019. Dr. van der Vleuten will deliver a keynote address, Work-based Assessment and Programmatic Assessment, on April 2 and will moderate a Presidential Chair Task Force panel on April 3.

The Showcase program will feature peer-reviewed oral presentations and workshops. All UCSF educators are invited. We encourage those involved in medical education, especially those new to educational scholarship, to review the abstract instructions carefully and consider submitting an abstract.

All submissions to Education Showcase are also eligible to receive the Cooke Award for the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning, which recognizes one or more outstanding projects presented at the event.
