Faculty Development Program

Faculty Development Program

The mission of the Faculty Development Program (FDP) is to facilitate and promote the development of skilled teachers within the University of Wollongong (UOW) Graduate School of Medicine (GSM) through scholarship, leadership, and innovation.

The intended audience of the Faculty Development Program is all GSM faculty members who are involved in the design, delivery and assessments of the UOW MBBS. GSM full-time, part-time and casual staff are expected to complete the Orientation to Medical Education module and any curriculum-specific presentations or workshops relevant to their assigned teaching responsibilities. Honorary clinicians are invited to participate in FDP activities relevant to their needs and interests.

In addition to the FDP, the GSM has developed an Academy of Clinicians to support the clinicians involved with the University of Wollongong.
