CCLC Faculty Development Series

The Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine (CCLCM) of Case Western Reserve University is launching a new Faculty Development Series. The aim of the series is to support and provide professional development for the 900 faculty that teach third-year students during their clerkship year. The Faculty Development Series is open to all faculty that seek support in developing, using and assessing effective instructional strategies. We hope that each series course will provide a forum for exploration and foster a teaching community of practice.

    • Target Audience: Over 900 Faculty that teach third year students
    • Delivery: ZOOM/Teams
    • Offering: The series consists of ten eight 50-minute synchronous sessions and 1 online asynchronous module. Each live session will be offered twice each year.
    • CME will be offered for attendance
    • Course Breakdown: The series features 8 core sessions and 3 that are specific to education settings
    • Participants will be eligible to get a certificate of completion after participating in a minimum of 8 total sessions. It is recommended that they complete the 8 core sessions and also the session(s) relevant to the settings in which they engage with students.
