The School of Medicine and the Department of Pediatrics offer several levels of training courses for leadership in academic medicine as well as teacher training programs.
Some of these programs require nomination by the Department.
Department of Pediatrics Teaching Center
Effective teaching is important to success in academics, and a clear requirement for promotions at UNC. Our Department has established a Teaching Center with resources for faculty to improve their teaching skills.
Academy of Educators
The UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine Academy of Educators was founded in October 2006 as a part of the School's strategic plan to enhance research and scholarship towards excellence in teaching.
Department of Pediatrics Leadership Development Program
The Department offers many opportunities for leadership development training, ranging from reading resources to free campus programs to off-campus courses requiring fees.
For courses requiring fees, the Department of Pediatrics has a limited amount of resources available. Funds available for support of these training opportunities vary year to year.
