Teaching in the MD Program
We are committed to supporting our teachers and ensuring they are well‐prepared for their teaching roles — across the spectrum of teaching and assessment activities. We encourage our teachers to take advantage of the resources and development opportunities to hone their teaching and assessment skills and acquire new ones, and to refresh their knowledge and expand it further.

- To support faculty, supervisors, preceptors, field instructors, clinical educators, and status appointees in their roles, we provide high-quality faculty development programming.
- Accessible resource for teaching (ART): the Centre for Faculty Development has created the ART online learning tool to provide additional ways for individuals and groups to participate in faculty development. The goal of ART is to bring faculty development to the teaching practice through the use of short, focused modules.
