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:
PCOM faculty and staff may access educational and instructional resources by visiting our faculty resources page. Resources include worksheets, instructional videos and documents, tips for engaging students, etc.
Special thanks to our volunteer clinical faculty (clinical preceptors) across the entire PCOM community. Their commitment is extremely important to the success of our students as they continue to learn in the clinical setting. Volunteer clinical faculty may apply for a variety of services, including the following.
If you have a PCOM faculty appointment and would like access to PCOM’s web-based library resources, please visit Access to PCOM Digital Library E-Resources, fill out the Volunteer form, and you will be contacted by a member of PCOM’s Library Services.
Many of our students access educational content and complete online assignments activities (discussion board, quizzes, video demonstrations, etc.) during their clinical rotations. These online educational activities are meant to augment students’ face-to-face experience with clinical preceptors. They use Blackboard, which is a learning management system (secure website which hosts all of these online activities). If you have a PCOM faculty appointment and would like to participate with students in this online environment via Blackboard, please complete the short Blackboard access request form below and you will be contacted by a member from the department of Professional Development and Online Learning (PDOL).
We have offices on the PCOM Georgia and PCOM campuses, and we provide support to all university programs and colleges. Our department number is 215-871-6689.
