The CFDC is a recognized leader in faculty development throughout the country. In addition to regular educational programming, the CFDC consults at the institutional level with the aim of integrating faculty development into the "culture" of medical and health care professions education. Faculty Development Consultations provide guidance and on-site implementation including training workshops, professional and organizational development, allowing institutions to save resources while responding to individual institutional needs.
The UMass CFDC has and continues to provide programs, curriculum and training to medical schools across the country. In the most recent past, we have conducted programs for and in collaboration with Brown, Baylor, Dartmouth, Mercer University, New England School of Acupuncture, NYU, Sophie Davis School of Medicine, Southern Illinois, SUNY Upstate, Temple Dental School, University of Kentucky, University of New England, and the Virginia Commonwealth University, to name a few.
"Due in no small part to your hard work and impressive contributions, this may be the beginning of a better faculty development project than I ever thought possible."

"We are genuinely pleased with the quality of educational experiences you facilitated for our community preceptors and hope that you will be able to work with us on future faculty development experiences."
