Faculty Development


The Office of Faculty Affairs and Faculty Development provides support for all faculty in the College of Medicine at Central Michigan University. We offer ongoing development opportunities related to instructional methods and evaluation, educational program leadership, mentoring and scholarly activity. Through workshops, campus events, individual and department consultations and certificate programs, we aim to provide outstanding professional development for our medical faculty and to support a high quality patient-centered, evidence-based medical education program within the College of Medicine.

We hope to supply our faculty with resources on teaching, working with learners, research and scholarship, and more.

Peer-to-peer coaching program

Central Michigan University College of Medicine participates in a faculty peer-to-peer coaching program in conjunction with six other Michigan medical schools. The goal of the program is to connect faculty to peers through career development, networking, and social activities, support faculty to improve their ability to articulate and formulate plans to actively pursue and achieve their career goals, enhance faculty self-efficacy and leadership skills, foster a growth mind-set and enhance professionalism that fosters diversity through different perspectives/experiences.
