DTF seminars focus on different areas of educational theory, research methods, teaching methods, educational technology, curriculum design, assessment of students, faculty development, leadership, and career planning. The DTF endowment has allowed us to invite four or five visiting professors per year. Generally the sessions consist of a 2 hour seminar on a medical education topic, with the final hour reserved for discussion of fellows’ projects or presentations from former Deans Teaching Fellows.
