The CFD is committed to creating exceptional programming to meet current and emerging faculty development needs across the health system. We offer a number of programs to develop and enhance participants’ knowledge and skills in health professions teaching, curriculum development, academic leadership, scholarship and advocacy. We have built and developed our core programs based on system needs, and relevancy for academic units within the University of Toronto, Toronto Academic Health Science Network (TAHSN) and our broader community.
