It is the mission of NCH Department of Medical Education to provide high quality, up‐to‐date, evidence‐based, and learner‐focused education to students, residents, and fellows. The Faculty Development Seminar Series are one of the blue chips of the hospital and are one of the many initiatives of the hospital leadership. In addition, the ACGME and the LCME require that Faculty Development be part of the institution’s culture. These seminar series are created to be a forum for training faculty in teaching, research, leadership, and administration.

Our Faculty Development Series are targeted to Primary Care Physicians and Sub-Specialty Physicians. (This courses are intended for NCHS faculty, employees, and rotating staff)
