Faculty development is a process by which medical school faculty, including preceptors teaching in the clinical setting, work systematically to improve their skills in the following areas: (1) educational skills, (2) leadership skills, (3) skills necessary to engage in scholarly activities, (4) personal development, and (5) skills in designing and implementing a professional development plan.
Faculty development activities are successful when individuals' goals in these five areas are being met and when simultaneously the goals of the organization are being met.
Author, Donald Finkel proposes a model to facilitate significant and lasting learning. Memorable learning experiences, he believes, occur when students discover knowledge for themselves.
