Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health: Faculty Development Day

April 9, 2021

As MCW expands training programs across the state, we must ensure that core and clinical faculty possess the necessary skills to provide high-quality education of our trainees.  As such, this conference will provide participants with techniques to effectively teach learners at the undergraduate (medical school) and graduate (residency) levels.  

Through the use of interactive workshop format, this conference will bring together physician and psychologist clinician-educator faculty from multiple sites with the goal of honing educational techniques and improving collaboration across clinical sites.
