We are available to help you in many ways including developing a new program, enhancing your teaching skills or assessment skills, designing a medical education research project, and developing your scholarship or mentoring, to name a few. Private meetings are available to provide feedback and consultation to explore how to meet your educational and learning goals. We want to be as helpful to you as possible.
