Congratulations to the UVA School of Medicine faculty who received a Certificate of Commitment to Faculty Development in Medical Education yesterday!
This medical education series is presented in collaboration with the Academy of Distinguished Educators. Faculty who attend 10 workshops over a two-year period will receive a Certificate of Commitment to Faculty Development in Medical Education. The certificate can be included as part of the Teaching Portfolio, which in turn can be used for purposes of application for membership to the Academy of Distinguished Educators and/or as part of the portfolio for promotion and tenure.

UVA School of Medicine is intentional in striving to grow as a diverse, welcoming place to learn and work. In the past two years, we have doubled the percentage of our medical residents who are underrepresented minorities - racial and ethnic populations who are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population - from 7-8% to 15%. This is also double the national average.
