Professional Development and Online Learning

Our department mission is to provide training and support to academic programs, facilitate faculty development, support continuing education and continuing medical education programs, support online learning, and promote effective use of instructional strategies for learners.

Our vision is to provide faculty, staff and professionals with support, training and resources to do what they do best—prepare and empower health professionals to become lifelong learners and excel in their professions.

Our goals are to:

  • Conduct faculty and professional development programs to establish best practices in maximizing the use of educational strategies.
  • Share and celebrate academic initiatives currently being conducted across the PCOM community (Georgia and Pennsylvania programs).
  • Foster a spirit of enthusiasm for teaching by exploring new pedagogic methods.
  • Facilitate interprofessional collaboration by promoting academic initiatives across disciplines.
  • Encourage educational research as it relates to academic initiatives.
  • Enhance continuing education opportunities for health care professionals.
  • Promote online and blended learning initiatives across programs.
