Faculty Teaching Opportunities

The delivery of outstanding education remains a fundamental goal of the Department of Medicine. The Department has a rich heritage of educating medical students, graduate students, residents, and fellows. 

This portion of the website provides details for each teaching role in the Department of Medicine-sponsored courses and clerkships. It is intended to provide all site visitors with the breadth of involvement in all phases of undergraduate medical training. Also, this site encourages recruitment by allowing faculty members to learn more about faculty teaching roles. Other valued teaching, not mentioned on this part of the site, include roles in residency training, fellowship training, and elective student programs.

Faculty members are encouraged to contribute to areas for which they are best suited.
