(l-r) Angela C. Piñeros-Fernández, MD; Andrew S. Parsons, MD, MPH; Thomas R. Hartka, MD; Joesph R. Wiencek, PhD; Maryellen Gusic, MD

Last December, we shared information about an ongoing professional development opportunity offered to faculty, fellows, and residents, as well as students and staff who want to advance their skills as teachers and/or pursue scholarly work in education. On June 4, four more of our faculty completed the program and received the Certificate of Commitment to Faculty Development in Medical Education. They are:

  • Angela C. Piñeros-Fernández, MD, Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery
  • Andrew S. Parsons, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Medicine
  • Thomas R. Hartka, MD, Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine
  • Joesph R. Wiencek, PhD, Assistant Professor of Pathology

Faculty who attend 10 workshops over a two-year period will receive this certificate. It can be included as part of the teaching portfolio which, in turn, can be included in the application for membership to the Academy of Distinguished Educators and/or as part of the portfolio for promotion and tenure.

Since 2013, 60 faculty have earned the certificate. This commitment is outstanding. For more information on the program, click here. To see topics presented in the series, click here. A full schedule of additional opportunities to qualify for earning a certificate will be available later in the summer.
