Teaching Service

Anesthesiology Faculty are expected to be effective teachers for our students and residents in both the classroom and clinical environment. The OR environment can be especially challenging given the acuity of situations which arise, and time constraints.  All faculty are expected to utilize the link http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/336/7640/384 which instructs on strategies and methods to maximize teaching effectiveness of our students in the clinical environment.  Other online resources to enhance your teaching and assessment skills may be found at http://www.facultyfocus.com/ . On our campus we have courses and conferences that are provided to enhance faculty teaching skills.  They may be found on the Faculty Development Series page.  The department will also offer conferences that focus on teaching skills, and will support efforts to enhance your teaching skills.  You are encouraged to review with your mentor or the Chair available opportunities to enhance your skills.
