Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
A majority of faculty in the Department of Pediatrics are involved in teaching medical students, residents, fellows, faculty and colleagues. To support this teaching mission, the Office of Faculty Development provides educator development CME workshops throughout the year. OFD can also arrange for individual consultation to those interested in conducting education research or quality improvement activities.
Faculty who wish to take a “deeper dive” into the science of education, further develop their own expertise in medical education and serve as a resource for colleagues can apply for the OFD Education Champion Program.
The OFD Education Champions program is designed to invigorate & advance the quality of educator development & the impact of teaching and educational scholarship in the Department of Pediatrics and the UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. Faculty members who have educational leadership positions (GME program leadership, medical student clerkship director, elective rotation director, etc.) or who aim to have educational scholarship as a major component of their academic career should strongly consider participating in this program.
The OFD Education Champions Program consists of annual cohorts of 10-12 faculty who engage in the following activities:
Faculty members must complete an application form and be nominated by their Division Chiefs or Department Directors. Nominations from community faculty and those with appointments in departments other than Pediatrics are also welcome. Annual requests for applications and nominations are distributed through faculty email.
