Graduate Medical Education Program Directors Series

The GME Program Director Development Series is a focused, on-going curriculum for all Carilion program directors, and associate program directors (and program managers as session appropriate), in support of continuous learning, development, and change.  Below are videos from our GME series thus far.  Each video will include presentation objectives and the PowerPoint that was presented at the session.  We encourage in-person attendance if at all possible, but recognize the value of alternative options for when it isn’t.

Bonus:  These sessions count toward your annual requirement for faculty development related to teaching! For instructions on how to log video-recorded sessions into Digital Measures click here.
