RowanSOM Faculty Development Program
* New! RowanSOM Faculty Development FACEBOOK!
To provide RowanSOM faculty and residents with education, resources, and support specifically in the areas of
- instructional innovation,
- and ongoing professional skill development.
By working closely with faculty through consultation, by providing steady access to current educational resources, and by offering a regular schedule of didactic programming, the goal of this faculty development program is to inspire RowanSOM faculty and residents to grow as leading medical educators and in turn, prepare RowanSOM students to be clinically skillful, compassionate and culturally competent physicians.
The Center for Teaching and Learning strives to assist SOM faculty with teaching support and professional development by providing guidance, resources, and services. To achieve these goals, we work directly with faculty on both an individual and group basis.

Faculty Online Teaching Course
May 30- July 24
The Faculty Online Teaching (FOT) course sponsored by the Faculty Center and Rowan Online is a totally online 8-week course in Canvas, which gives participants the experience of being an online student while exploring the pedagogy of online teaching and the teaching tools available in Canvas. Most of the course is asynchronous with group work that has synchronous components.
Previous participants have been a mix from no online experience to numerous years and from adjunct to full time. Everyone who has completed the course has been really glad they took the course and immediately applied what they were learning to both online and F2F classes.

RowanSOM Mentors Wanted
As you know, one of the main ingredients to achieving success in medical school is strong mentorship; someone who has walked this path and can share their wisdom with a medical student to make their journey better. At SOM, we have the D.O.C.’s (D.O.’s Counseling students) program and are in need of physician mentors to pair with our students! This is a great way to engage with students who are following in your footsteps. It’s easy to participate and a small investment in time can make a world of difference in a student’s life. For more information and to register, visit: SOM D.O.C.s program.

The RowanSOM Center for Teaching recently purchased a subscription to Monday Morning Mentor.
