Faculty Development Update: Call for Workshops!

Posted on Friday, May 11, 2018

This year our theme is, “The impact we have, the impact we experience”. Whether we are clinicians, leaders, administrators, researchers, scholars, teachers and/or educators, we are impacted by those around us, and we impact them in return.

Based on the structure of DFM’s new definition of “Academic Family Physician” we are looking to understand your role as a faculty member. In addition, we are looking to help you have an impact on your colleagues at the retreat. 

We would appreciate it if you could include 100-150 words about what kind of ground you would like to cover in a talk and the name of someone you would like to have as a co-presenter. Plan for a 1-1.5 hour interactive practical workshop based on the theme of impact.

Is there someone else you would like to suggest? Whose voice or ideas you would like to hear? We wish to encourage diverse voices we have not heard from in the past, from all settings, and at all career stages. We are keen to develop our faculty and assist them in any way we can.

Please send your ideas, thoughts, to either Asiya Rolston at facdevdfm@uottawa.ca or to myself at eric.wooltorton@uottawa.ca by June 1, 2018.

Look for a link to register for the Annual Retreat this summer in your inbox!
