Educator Community Committees

NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s Educator Community comprises several committees to inform our efforts related to faculty development, engagement, peer-mentoring support, and recognition. We also collaborate with identified partners to facilitate educational innovation, research, and scholarship in undergraduate, graduate, and continuing medical education.

The Faculty Development Committee’s objectives include the following:

  • promote sustainable approaches to achieve educational excellence, innovation, and scholarship

  • facilitate the development of educational skill programs that are aligned with faculty needs, as well as undergraduate medical education and graduate medical education curricular goals
