CAFMR offers a New Faculty Development Program for CAFMR faculty with less than three years of experience in a core faculty role at a family medicine residency. Participants from our core programs and Rural Training Tracks learn the basics of teaching, evaluating, and mentoring residents while getting to know faculty from other residency programs and experiencing active learning methods. 

Schedule: The 2019-2020 program will meet on four Mondays during the academic year. Faculty members who enroll in the program are encouraged to plan to attend every session, as sessions will build upon each other. You may be asked to complete a couple of hours of pre-work before sessions.

  • Dates: Monday September 30th, 2019; Monday February 3rd, 2020; Monday April 13th, 2020; Monday June 8th, 2020.

  • Location: The first session will be held at COPIC, 7351 E Lowry Blvd., Ste. 400, Denver, CO 80230. Subsequent sessions may be held at COPIC or family medicine residency programs.
