Teaching of Tomorrow (TOT) is a nationally recognized and highly acclaimed Faculty Development Program for preceptors of medical students and residents. First offered in 1994, this program is presented by UMass faculty from the departments of Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and Pediatrics; over 1,000 clinical faculty and preceptors throughout the Northeast have participated. Two tracks are offered: Track 1 is an introduction to teaching in the clinical setting; Track 2 is a competitive advanced program for faculty who have completed Track 1 and who wish to deepen their knowledge and skills in teaching and learning.

"Thank you and all the faculty for a wonderful course. For me it serves both to instruct and to allow me to interact with wonderful, caring, smart faculty who are not only teaching but modeling, consciously, professionalism... I am especially grateful for the observed small group sessions with expertly facilitated discussion of role played clinical scenarios, taught and reinforced viscerally the skills fundamental to student-focused teaching, guidance, feedback. The comments from those sessions and from the last large group meeting, are still vivd. So, Thank You, very much."
